    • Angels' Joe Smith: Held out due to back pain
      By RotoWire Staff

      Smith was unavailable to pitch Monday because of back tightness, but manager Mike Scoscia says he should be fine, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports. Smith just returned from a DL stint due to a hamstring injury, but there doesn't seem to be any reason for concern here. The veteran reliever has been used regularly out of the bullpen and is posting a 5.00 ERA this month.

    • Angels' Joe Smith: Needs to earn setup role back
      By RotoWire Staff

      Smith is not expected to immediately resume his role as the Angels' setup man, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports. The right-hander was activated from the DL on Friday after missing three weeks with a hamstring issue. His relative success in high-leverage spots led some to think he would return to setup duty immediately upon activation, but it sounds like Smith will have to work his way back into the later innings. Manager Mike Scioscia suggested a combination of players will help bridge the gap to Huston Street, but he mentioned Cam Bedrosian specifically.

    • Angels' Joe Smith: Activated from disabled list
      By RotoWire Staff

      Smith (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day DL on Friday. The hamstring injury cost Smith more than three weeks, but he's been cleared to return following a brief rehab assignment. Smith breezed through his two minor league appearances, recording six outs in total on 16 pitches, although he was pitching for the High-A affiliate. Regardless, Smith figures to immediately resume his role as the primary setup option to closer Huston Street, who is on shaky ground following yet another poor outing Wednesday.

    • Angels' Joe Smith: Set for rehab appearance
      By RotoWire Staff

      Smith (hamstring) will make a rehab appearance with High-A Inland Empire on Sunday, Joey Kaufman of the Orange County Register reports. He was able to pitch through a bout of left hamstring soreness for a few weeks, but Smith ultimately hit the DL in early June when the discomfort became too much. Smith now appears to be inching closer to a return and he may very well step back into the setup role immediately upon activation. Huston Street, the Angels' closer, has more walks than strikeouts this year and has blown two of his last three save chances.
