Since biceps injuries often turn out to be shoulder problems in reality, this is a major concern. Colon figured to have setbacks in his recovery from a torn rotator cuff, but he was looking so good in his rehab assignment and in his first couple of starts back in the majors. If he goes back on the DL, the Angels figure to recall Joe Saunders to replace him in the rotation.

Asked whether the pain might be related to the rotator cuff (shoulder) injury that kept him out of action until mid-April, Colon said, "I'm not worried. ... It's halfway between the elbow and the shoulder."
Scioscia said, "We're day-to-day with Bart and it's good to have the extra day [Monday]. We'll evaluate him on a daily basis." The manager later added he didn't believe Colon would undergo an MRI on Monday.

"Right now, it's tough to evaluate," Scioscia said. "He has as much chance of making his next start as of not making it. We'll take it day by day and see how he feels."
