Angels could get Rasmus back relatively soon

BY foxsports • June 16, 2015

The Los Angeles Angels have been without reliever Cory Rasmus since he underwent abdominal surgery during spring training, but that chapter may be coming to a close soon.

Manager Mike Scioscia told Jeff Fletcher of the O.C. Register on Monday that Rasmus is 'a few days away' from starting a rehab stint. 

Rasmus came up big for the Halos in late 2014, after starter Garrett Richards went down with his season-ending knee issue. Rasmus stepped in to fill Richards' place in the rotation and made six starts, posting a 2.57 ERA and doing his part to save the overtaxed Angels' bullpen down the stretch. 

Fletcher notes that Rasmus had been groomed as a starter for this season prior to his injury, but that delay (and the Angels' wealth of starting pitchers) means he'll assume a spot in the bullpen once he's able to return to the 25-man roster.
