Another calamity has struck the Los Angeles Angels pitching staff. Veteran long-reliever Darren Oliver was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left triceps, according to the Los Angeles Times.
We're trying to nurse him back . . . and for him to try to throw another 60 pitches is not the right thing to do," Manager Mike Scioscia said before the game. "He gave us four good innings, but that's his limit. We don't want to put him at risk because of how important he is to our bullpen."
