Angels closer Keynan Middleton placed on DL
Middleton, who has six saves in 13 games for the Halos, is suffering from elbow inflammation on his right arm.
Today the #Angels have made the following roster moves:
· RHP Keynan Middleton – Placed on 10-day DL with right elbow inflammation (retro to 4/29)
· RHP Eduardo Paredes – Recalled from Salt Lake

Middleton is the second Angels pitcher to make the trip to the DL for elbow inflammation after Andrew Heaney started the season in the minors with a similar issue.
The Angels will replace Middleton with right hander Eduard Paredes, who has a 3.00 ERA and struck out five in three appearances for the Halos earlier this season.
