Tropeano was placed on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.
Tropeano exited Monday's start against the Tigers after five innings with what was originally described as right shoulder tightness. The 27-year-old spent a month on the disabled list from mid-June to mid-July with shoulder inflammation, but it's unclear how severe the issue is this time around. Tropeano will be eligible to come of the disabled at Texas on August 16 if healthy.
Angels manager Mike Scioscia said after Monday's 6-2 win over the Tigers that he's hopeful Tropeano (shoulder) will be able to make his next scheduled start, which would fall Sunday against the Athletics, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Tropeano cruised through five one-hit innings and picked up the win in the series opener with Detroit, but was forced to exit prematurely after experiencing right shoulder tightness. Though it's the same injury that previously resulted in a pair of trips to the disabled list earlier in the season, Tropeano's latest setback doesn't appear to be quite as severe and an MRI hasn't been scheduled. The Angels will likely have Tropeano rest for a couple of days before he attempts to throw again later in the week. If that goes well, Tropeano could take the hill Sunday on five days' rest.
Tropeano was lifted from Monday's start against the Tigers due to right shoulder tightness, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic Los Angeles reports.
Tropeano was pulled from the game after allowing one run on one hit and one walk while striking out four across five innings, and he left the ballgame in line for the win. Given his history with shoulder injuries, this could be cause for concern. More information on the severity of the injury should be released after further evaluation.
He threw only 56 of 95 pitches for strikes as Tropeano walked multiple batters for the fourth straight start, and got tagged for at least four runs for the fourth time in his last five starts. The rough stretch has inflated his ERA over a full run to 4.94, making him a difficult pitcher to roster in most fantasy formats. Tropeano will try to turn things around Monday at home against the Tigers.
Tropeano (4-5) gave up five earned runs over 6.0 innings but still picked up the win over the White Sox on Thursday. He struck out seven and all five of his runs came off of solo homers.
It was a bizarre final line for Tropeano as the White Sox teed off on him, but he still managed to limit baserunners enough to where he avoided crooked numbers until the seventh inning. At that point, Avisail Garcia and Daniel Palka launched moon shots measuring over 430 feet apiece and Nicky Delmonico finished him off with a homer to right. Tropeano had been susceptible to the long ball coming into Thursday with a 1.4 HR/9 rate, but he hadn't been teed off on to this extent in any of his 11 starts prior. He'll look to shake off the long ball issues in his next turn in the rotation, which is expected to come Wednesday in Tampa Bay.
