The Anaheim Angels have placed right-hander Jordan Walden on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained biceps.
The move made Sunday before the Angels' played the New York Yankees is retroactive to July 9.
Walden has been struggling of late. He gave up five runs in four appearances since July 1 - he only allowed three runs over nine appearances in June. He is 2-2 with a 3.86 ERA in 31 appearances overall.
Walden says his shoulder was bothering him and compensating for that caused the biceps injury right before the All-Star break.
Outfielder Kole Calhoun has been recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake to take Walden's roster spot. Calhoun's bags were lost en route and he had to borrow cleats and a glove.

The Los Angeles Angels have placed right-handed reliever Jordan Walden on disabled list with a strained right bicep. The move, which was first reported by MLB.com on Sunday, is the latest in a rough season for Walden, who started the season as the Angeles' closer. Walden had saved 32 games in 2001, but lost the job to Ernesto Frieri. He has compiled a 2-2 record with a 3...
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.
With Trout it’s a little harder because somehow he comes across as a good guy and great teammate despite only being 20 years old. Harper, it’s a little...

Curtis Granderson made the catch of the day by robbing fellow center fielder Mike Trout of extra bases on Sunday. Trout launched a 2-1 pitch deep to center field that appeared to be destined for extra bases, as Granderson was shading the Angels top prospect to right center field.
After a long run to track the ball down, Granderson made a stellar catch at the warning track just before...

NEW YORK -- Los Angeles Angels reliever Kevin Jepsen tried to treat it like any other situation. "'Me against you, here it is,'" Jepsen said of his approach after he recorded the final out of the Angels' 10-8 victory over the Yankees on Sunday. Trouble is, the "him" was another one of the Yankees' current Murderers' Row of hitters in Alex...
NEW YORK (AP) -- Kevin Jepsen got Alex Rodriguez to pop out with the bases loaded in the ninth inning and the Los Angeles Angels took advantage of New York's baserunning follies to beat the Yankees 10-8 Sunday.
With seemingly no lead safe recently at Yankee Stadium, Mark Teixeira hit a two-run homer in the ninth off Ernesto Frieri to make it 10-7, the first runs off the closer...
NEW YORK -- The Los Angeles Angels can make a nuisance of themselves, so often looking to take an extra base -- if not outright steal it -- that opponents can get fidgety. Unless the opponent can just swat away such problems. The New York Yankees have been known to do that all year, and did so again with another pair of home runs helping them to a 5-3 win over the Angels on Saturday...
NEW YORK -- The Los Angeles Angels flexed their own muscles Sunday against the homer-happy New York Yankees, then survived a ninth-inning rally to barely hold them off. The Angels chased Yankees starter Ivan Nova by scoring six runs off him, and added five runs against New York's bullpen in a 10-8 win at Yankee Stadium. The Angels and Yankees combined for eight homers, with...

Bryce Harper and Mike Trout are just two of the reasons that baseball's future is getting brighter.
The two biggest free-agent signings prior to the 2012 season are gradually turning things around after slow starts.
Their teams, however, are still looking up in their respective division races.
In their first meeting since signing massive contracts, Albert Pujols and the Los Angeles Angels open a four-game series Monday night against Prince Fielder's Detroit Tigers.
