The Angels have placed righty reliever Kevin Jepsen on the 15-day disabled list with lower back spasms. His injury could have easily also been called whiplash due to his pitching this season. Jepsen has pitched in 5 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this season and he is 0-2 with a 19.29 ERA and a 3.43 WHIP. He has allowed a stunning 11 hits and has walked 5 batters in only 4 2/3 innings for the Angels this season. The Angels have recalled 24-year old righty swinging infielder Brandon Wood to replace Jepsen on the roster. Wood has played in 7 games in AAA-ball this season and he is 9 for 26 (.346 avg, 1.356 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 4 homers and 8 RBIs. The Angels should get Wood right into the lineup as they are having problems scoring runs this season.
