Ramus and Nava go on DL, increasing Angels' total to 10
LOS ANGELES (AP) Right-hander Cory Rasmus and outfielder Daniel Nava were placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday by the Angels, giving Los Angeles 10 injured players.
Both players have left groin strains sustained on Monday.
Also on the DL are infielder Andrelton Simmons (ulnar collateral ligament tear in left thumb), right-hander Garrett Richards (ulnar collateral ligament tear in right elbow), left-hander Andrew Heaney (left forearm strain), left-hander C.J. Wilson (left shoulder inflammation), right-hander Huston Street (left oblique strain), outfielder Craig Gentry (right lumbar spine strain) and infielder Cliff Pennington (left hamstring strain).
Los Angeles recalled right-hander A.J. Acter and outfielder Rafael Ortega from Triple-A Salt Lake.
Left-handed reliever Neal Cotts, who signed a minor league deal with the Angels and began the season at Salt Lake, exercised an opt-out clause in his contract Tuesday and became a free agent.
''He's not joining us now,'' manager Mike Scioscia said.
