The Angels have placed righty reliever Chris Bootcheck on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow injury. He has pitched in 10 games (0 starts) for the Angels this season and he is 0-1 with a 10.13 ERA and a 2.63 WHIP. The Angels should make Bootcheck pitch well in the minors after he gets off the D.L. to earn his spot back in the bullpen. After all, he has allowed 30 hits in only 16 innings. The Angels have recalled rookie righty Darren O’Day from AAA to replace Bootcheck both in the bullpen and on the roster. O’Day has pitched in 17 games (0 starts) this season for the Angels and he is 0-1 with a 4.30 ERA and a 1.83 WHIP. O’Day needs to start missing bats in the majors as he has allowed 31 hits in only 23 innings this season.
