The Angels have placed 25-year old righty reliever Michael Kohn on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 26th due to a right forearm strain. Kohn pitched in 14 games (0 starts) for the Angels last year and he was 0-1 with 1 save, a 7.30 ERA and a 1.87 WHIP. Kohn has now pitched in 38 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Angels and he is 2-1 with 2 saves, a 4.01 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP. The Angels hope that Kohn heals up soon, as they were likely going to give him his big chance in 2012.
UPDATE: (4/11/2012) – Michael Kohn needs Tommy John Surgery and he will miss the entire 2012 season. This is a very bad break for him.
