Angels place reliever Thatcher on DL with sprained ankle
APST. PETERSBURG, Fla.
The Los Angeles Angels have placed reliever Joe Thatcher on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left ankle.
Thatcher was hurt fielding a bunt in Saturday night's 10-3 loss at Tampa Bay.
In a series of moves Sunday, Los Angeles also optioned left-hander Michael Roth to Double-A Arkansas and recalled right-hander Cam Bedrosian from the Texas League club. Right-hander Fernando Salas was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake.
Roth, recalled Friday night from Arkansas, pitched the final 4 2/3 innings Saturday night after Thatcher left in the fourth.
