NEW YORK Angels reliever Jordan Walden was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday because of a right biceps strain, an injury that is not believed to be serious but one the hard-throwing right-hander could no longer pitch through. Walden said his shoulder had been bothering him for a few weeks and flared up bad after his last outing against the Baltimore Orioles on July 8.

Is There a Harper and Trout Remix?

I want to hate Bryce Harper and Mike Trout.  Maybe if they played for the Tigers I’d love them but two guys that young, that talented and that successful who aren’t on my team?  Honestly, I really want to dislike them.
