Angels put Rodney on the DL

By C. Trent Rosecrans

Fernando RodneyAngels reliever Fernando Rodney has been placed on the disabled list with an upper-back strain, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times tweets.

Rodney didn't travel with the team to Seattle, staying back to see a doctor for the back and side issues he'd been experiencing of late. The team called up right-hander Bobby Cassevah from Triple-A to take Rodney's spot.

Rodney is 2-3 with a 4.09 ERA in 26 appearances this season. He hasn't pitched since Wednesday, when he suffered the loss, allowing a run in extra innings against the Rays. He hadn't pitched for more than a week before that, when he recorded his third save of the season in a victory against the Royals. He also has 10 holds and three blown saves.
