Angels general manager Billy Eppler said Tuesday that Peters (ankle) is dealing with an oblique injury that will likely keep him out for a few weeks, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Peters was scratched ahead of his final spring training start in March with a sprained ankle, but he appears to have since overcome that injury. Instead, the oblique is now Peters' main concern, and the injury looks like it could be something that sidelines him when the Angels open their regular season July 23 or 24. Los Angeles included Peters in its 60-man roster pool that was announced Sunday, so he'll be eligible to pitch for the big club once he's deemed healthy.
