Angels' starting pitcher Joe Blanton (1-10) will miss his next start which was scheduled this weekend versus the New York Yankees. The nine-year veteran has a 5.87 ERA through his first 13 starts in an Angels' uniform. According to the LA Times, Mike Scioscia did not specify how long Blanton's hiatus will be, but did say that he will "push him back a couple of days." He later commented on how a short break could be good for him. Blanton's last start was against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park in which he gave up seven runs in only five innings pitched. He also became the first Major League starting pitcher to record ten losses on the 2013 season. His start at Fenway was questionable in the aspect of his pitch selection by way of challenging David Ortiz and other Boston sluggers with his less than threatening fastball in hitter's counts. After another solid outing against the Baltimore Orioles, Jerome Williams (5-2) is the favored starter to take Blanton's spot in the rotation. He allowed four earned runs in six innings pitched at Camden Yards in which he picked up his fifth win of the season. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
