The Angels have placed 29-year old righty reliever Mark Lowe on the 15-day disabled list due to neck stiffness. I’m not surprised as his neck stiffness is likely due to whiplash with the way he has been pitching so far in 2013. He has pitched in 7 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 1-0 with a 11.37 ERA and a 1.90 WHIP. Lowe has given up only 4 hits and he has whiffed 6 batters in his first 6 1/3 innings for the Angels this year, but he has walked 8 batters which has gotten him into a lot of trouble so far. Hopefully his control problems were because of his neck, as he has a really good arm.
