Biography

Maicer Izturis, (born September 12, 1980 in Barquisimeto, Lara State, Venezuela) is a Major League Baseball infielder who plays for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He bats switch and throws right-handed.

Izturis is the half brother of Cubs shortstop Cesar Izturis. He was signed by the Cleveland Indians as a non-drafted free agent on April 1, 1998 and was traded to the Montreal Expos at the end of the 2003 season.

In 2004 Izturis hit .338 with three home runs and 36 RBI for the Triple-A Edmonton Trappers before being promoted to the Major League level with the Montreal Expos. He registered a hit in his August 27, 2004 debut, singling off San Diego Padres right-hander Dennis Tankersley in the second inning. In 32 games with the Expos, Izturis hit .206 (22-for-107) with one home run and 14 RBI.

On November 19, 2004, Iztúris was traded to the Angels along with outfielder Juan Rivera for OF Jose Guillén.

Though a shortstop by trade, Gold Glover Orlando Cabrera occupied that position on the Angels roster, relegating Izturis to the role of a utility infielder. After the placement of veteran Darin Erstad on the disabled list moved star utilityman Chone Figgins to center field during the 2006 campaign, Izturis has emerged as the club's starting third baseman.

In the game against the Cleveland Indians on July 17, 2006, he had a career high 4 hits in one game, going 4-5 with 1 RBI and 3 runs.
