Rasmus (groin) underwent surgery on his injured groin Wednesday, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports. Rasmus was placed on the 15-day disabled list on June 13. Unfortunately, it appears the injury was not progressing in a positive direction resulting in surgery. Rasmus missed roughly four months following surgery last season, so if it was similar he will likely be out the remainder of the season. Expect an update when more information is made available.
Rasmus was placed back on the 15-day disabled list Monday, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports. Rasmus was just activated from DL on Thursday. He pitched 2.1 innings over three games, and gave up just one earned run. It is unclear when exactly he aggravated his groin to cause this return the DL. The Angels subsequently recalled Al Alburquerque and A.J. Achter from Triple-A Salt Lake.
Rasmus (groin) has returned from the disabled list Thursday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports. Rasmus was placed on the 15-day DL with a strained right groin on May 17. The 28-year-old will take the spot of Greg Mahle on the roster, and will try to bring some help to the Angels' bullpen. In 11 appearances this season, Rasmus has posted a 5.59 ERA during 19.1 innings of action. Even though opposing batters are only hitting .204 off of him, his 12:13 strikeout to walk ratio has hurt him significantly.
Rasmus is headed for the 15-day DL with a strained right groin, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports. The hits just keep coming for the Angels, but Rasmus seems confident his injury isn't too serious. He suggested he could make it back soon after his two weeks are up. The 28-year-old has struggled in 11 appearances this season and is probably out of the mix for starts with Jhoulys Chacin now in Anaheim, and Tim Lincecum likely to follow.
Rasmus is a candidate to start Wednesday's game against the Cardinals, the Orange County Register's Jeff Fletcher reports. Matt Shoemaker is the favorite to start Wednesday, but just the fact that Rasmus is in the discussion suggests he probably has at least a handful of starts in his future this season after the Angels' rotation has been decimated by injuries. He allowed five runs on five hits over 2.1 innings on a spot start that was essentially a bullpen game Friday, but could theoretically go deeper into a start Wednesday now that his pitch count has been built up slightly. That said, there is no reason to expect him to be any more effective.
