The Angels placed Francisco Rodriguez (forearm) on the
15-day disabled list on Monday. The move is retroactive to
May 15.

Scot Shields will continue to close games out for manager
Mike Scioscia until K-Rod is healthy enough to return.


Forearm - 15-day DL. Eligible to return May 30
(Updated - 5/23/05)


Just got this info from CBS

ANAHEIM, CA -- The Angels Monday placed right-hander pitcher Francisco Rodriguez on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to May 15) due to a strained right forearm. To replace Rodriguez on the 25-man roster, the Angels selected the contract of right-handed pitcher Joel Peralta from triple-A Salt Lake. To make room on the 40-man roster for Peralta, the club designated outfielder Chris Prieto for assignment. These announcements were made by the Angels Vice President/General Manager Bill Stoneman.
Rodriguez, 23, is 1-1 with 10 saves and 2.25 ERA (16 IP - 4 ER) in the 14 appearances. He suffered the injury while pitching in the first game of the doubleheader, May 14 at Detroit. Rodriguez ranks tied for seventh in the AL in saves and has posted a save in his last seven appearances. He has struck out at least one batter in all 14 appearances. In 2004, Rodriguez posted 123 strikeouts to establish a club record for relievers. He was selected by fans as the 2004 Major League "Set Up Man of the Year" as conducted by the MLB.com and finished tied for fourth in American League Cy Young Award balloting by the BBWAA. Rodriguez was also named to the AL All-Star Team.

A native of Caracas, Venezuela, Rodriguez owns a 13-5 career record with 24 saves and a 2.35 ERA (191.2 IP - 50 ER) in 147 games. His ERA ranks forth best in club history. Rodriguez was originally signed by the Angels as a minor league free agent, Sept. 2, 1998.

Peralta, 29, was 4-1 with seven saves ad a 2.60 ERA (17.1 - 5 ER) in 16 games at Salt Lake. He allowed nine hits, walked five and struck out 16. Peralta's first appearance with the Angels will be his major league debut.

A native of Banoa, Dominican Republic, Peralta was originally signed by the Angels as a free agent, Feb. 25, 1999.

Prieto, 32, is batting .296 (29/98) with one home run and eight RBI in 28 games at Salt Lake. He was recalled by the Angels, May 12, and optioned, May 17. Prieto made his major league debut at age 32, May 14 at Detroit (Game 2), and finished 0-for-1 with a sacrifice bunt. Overall, he was 0-for-2 with the Angels in two games.

Originally selected by Dan Diego in the 24th round of the 1993 free agent draft, Prieto was signed by the Angels as a free agent, Dec. 14, 2004.

Wow...better and better. We are approaching something like a 40% attrition rate in closers not counting the minor injuries:

Hermanson CHW
Urbina Det
KC ????? (Does it matter)
Street Oak
Bernero Atl
Dempster/Borowski Chi
Wagner Cin
Fuentes Colo
Jones Florida (Mota back soom though)
Turnbow Milw
Walker SF

and we had Bazonban over Gagne for most of the first 1.5 months.

I am so angry with myself. I dropped shields a day before this happened last week.

I'm going to cry.

its retroactive to May 15 so he'll be available in less than a week. They're covering their bases and just making sure K-rod heals properly. I don't see him out past the very beginning of June.

I hope he is back soon. I am in an AL only league and K-rod is my only true closer (I have Street).
