ST. PETERSBURG — The Angels made a few roster moves on Sunday morning, according to Saturday nights 10-3 loss to the Rays at Tropicana Field.
Pitcher Jordan Roth was optioned to Double-A Arkansas, along with pitcher Joe Thatcher was put on the disabled list with a sprained suitable ankle sustained in the 6th inning on Saturday, which he desires will keep him out 2-3 weeks.
The Halos called up pitchers Webcam Bedrosian and Fernando Salas from the Class A new Advanced Inland Empire. Supervisor Mike Scioscia said both could well be available for Sundays series finale.
Roth, who was simply called up prior to the Sun light series, pitched 4 2/3 innings regarding relief in Saturdays game, organizing 87 pitches.
In that game, you want to get a chance to get into the game — if hes previously gonna give you the length — as well as Mike did that,In Scioscia said. We had numerous options. And if youre not gonna acquire the game, you want those men to really earn it with many pitching.
Scioscia said Roths performance required the Rays into making use of multiple relievers of their own — Fran Peralta and Brad Boxberger — in a video game that otherwise could have converted into a blowout early.
But together with Halos starter C.L. Wilson lasting just 1 1/3 innings and Thatcher going on the DL, the actual Angels needed more depth inside their bullpen on Sunday.
[Roth] understands the problem, he understands the need to get some good fresh arms here — and it also was important what he did last night, even though we all didnt win the game,Inches Scioscia said. I think in the overall picture, theres a very tangible development weve seen in Mike from which he was last year. He has been gonna pitch in the big leagues and hes gonna help us in the future.
