The Los Angeles Angels has placed 24-year old righty reliever Cam Bedrosian on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 4th, due to right middle finger flexor tendinitis.  This is a bad break for Bedrosian, as he was going to fill in as the Angels’ closer until Huston Street came back from the D.L.  Bedrosian has pitched in 45 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 2-0 with 1 save, a 1.12 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP.  Bedrosian has given up only 30 hits and 14 walks while whiffing 51 batters in his first 40 1/3 innings for the Angels this year.

The Los Angeles Angels have placed 33-year old righty closer Huston Street on the 15-day disabled list due to knee inflammation.  Street has pitched in 26 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 3-2 with 9 saves, a 6.45 ERA and a 1.93 WHIP.  He has given up 31 hits (5 homers) and 12 walks while whiffing 14 batters in his first 22 1/3 innings for the Angels this year, so he has been getting hit really hard in 2016.  Since June 1st, Street has pitched in 16 games (0 starts) in which he is 1-2 with 4 saves, a 9.88 ERA and a 2.71 WHIP.  The Angels will likely turn to 24-year old righty Cam Bedrosian as their new closer moving forward.  Bedrosian has pitched in 43 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 2-0 with a 0.92 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP.  He has given up 28 hits and 11 walks while whiffing 48 batters in his first 39 innings this year for the Angels.  This is Bedrosian’s big chance to be a closer like his dad (Steve Bedrosian) was.

UPDATE:  (8/23/2016) – Huston Street has underwent season ending knee surgery.

The Los Angeles Angels have placed 26-year old righty swinging 1B C.J.
