The Angels have placed 31-year old righty reliever Jason Bulger on the 15-day disabled list with a sore right shoulder. Bulger has pitched in 22 games (0 starts) for the Angels this season and he is 0-0 with a 3.74 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP. He has walked 15 batters while whiffing 23 in 21 2/3 innings for the Angels this year. The Angels have recalled 25-year old righty reliever Rafael Rodriguez to replace Bulger in the pen. Rodriguez has pitched in 24 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball this season and he is 3-3 with 8 saves, a 3.54 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP. He pitched in 18 games (0 starts) for the Angels last season and he was 0-1 with a 5.58 ERA and a 1.83 WHIP. He gave up 47 hits in 30 2/3 innings last season so he will have to be sharper than that if he’s going to stick around for a while with the Angels this time around.
