Found May 03, 2013 on Monkey with a Halo:
The May 2nd, 2013 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels including Madson has scar tissue removed, the Angel bullpen is a disaster and much more... The Story: Ryan Madson had scar tissue removed from his elbow. The Monkey Says: He played catch yesterday for the first time in over two weeks, so this obviously wasn't a major procedure, but it sure as hell isn't one that fills me with optimism that he would be back before the end of the month. The Story: The Angel bullpen is a disaster. The Monkey Says: Just in case you somehow weren't aware. The Story: Kevin Jepsen played catch yesterday for the first time since he went on the DL. The Monkey Says: That is good news as there had been nothing resembling a timetable for Jepsen's return. This at least suggests that he won't be out for months. The Story: The Angels are searching for answers for their poor start. The Monkey Says: Come for the same rehashed narrative, stay for the vaguely depressing quotes from Scioscia and the Angel players. The Story: The Angels signed Josh Judy to a minor league contract. The Monkey Says: He had a 6.99 ERA at Triple-A last season which means he might actually have to wait a week or two before he gets drafted into the Angel bullpen. The Story: Ten things to know about Howie Kendrick. The Monkey Says: Let it henceforth be known as a Sloppy GIDP. [follow]

The Angels bullpen is a disaster

There is a lot wrong with the LA Angels. Instead of being the World Series contender many thought they would be, the Halos have struggled to a 10-17 record and are already on the verge of having to declare 2013 a lost season. The problem that gets the most attention is Josh Hamilton. While he is having a miserable season, he attracts the attention simply based on brand name recognition...

Angels RP Scott Downs suffers rib injury
