The Los Angeles Angels have placed 36-year old lefty reliever Scott Downs on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 28th due to a strained left shoulder. Downs has pitched in 38 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 1-1 with 9 saves, a 2.57 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. He will be replaced on the active roster and in the bullpen by 37-year old Hisanori Takahashi, who has been recalled from AAA. He pitched in 33 games (0 starts) earlier this year for the Angels and he was 0-2 with a 4.37 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP. The Angels hope that Downs only has to miss a couple of weeks, as he has pitched well so far this year.
