The Angels have placed 24-year old righty reliever Jordan Walden on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 9th, due to strained right biceps. Walden has pitched in 31 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 2-2 with 1 save, a 3.86 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP. He has given up 26 hits and he has walked 18 batters in only 28 innings so far this year, while whiffing 35 batters. His control has been off and that is why he lost his closer’s job early this year. Walden has now pitched in 109 games (0 starts) in his first three years with the Angels and he is 7-8 with 34 saves, a 3.13 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP.
