Torii Hunter was placed on the Angels’ restricted list on Monday after it was announced that Hunter’s son had been arrested for sexual assault. 17-year-old Darius McClinton-Hunter was reportedly arrested, along with five other suspects, after a month long investigation into a sexual assault of a child. Hunter left the team on Monday and when Hunter will return is anyone’s guess. “It’s a personal matter,” Scioscia said. “We’re going to go day-to-day, and we’ll just see where it is. That’s all I’m going to say.” Hunter flew back to California with the Angels on Sunday night from the Dallas-Fort Worth area, where they faced the Rangers last weekend. But Hunter left Angel Stadium several hours before Monday’s game against the Oakland Athletics. “This is very tough for a father,” Hunter tweeted after leaving Angel Stadium. “Thanks for ur prayers and support. Be Blessed everyone.”
