SEATTLE (AP) - Vladimir Guerrero is leaving a road trip and
heading back to Los Angeles for further tests on an injured chest
muscle.

Manager Mike Scioscia said an MRI Thursday revealed a strained pectoral muscle. The 34-year-old Guerrero was to fly to Los Angeles Wednesday night to see team orthopedist Dr. Lewis Yocum.

Yocum will determine whether the first player since Lou Gehrig
to bat at least .300 with at least 25 home runs in 11 consecutive
seasons will rejoin the Angels' road trip in Minnesota this
weekend.

Guerrero played in all eight of the Angels' games as the designated hitter before sitting out Thursday night's game at
Seattle.

He said he first felt discomfort during an exhibition against the Dodgers four days before opening day.
