Found May 20, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Following a successful minor league rehab appearance with the Los Angeles Angels' Single-A affiliate, left-handed reliever Sean Burnett told William Boor of MLB.com that he hopes to be activated from the disabled list as soon as Tuesday. "Felt good," Burnett said of his one-inning appearance. "As long as I go out there today and feel good, hopefully I'll be ready to go Tuesday." Burnett's not the only one who believes Tuesday is a likely return date. Manager Mike Scioscia told reporters that a return tomorrow is a "possibility." "I don't think there's any pain or anything, but you have to work back into your delivery and make pitches," Scioscia said. "His delivery is a little bit complicated. He's across his body so he's got some work to do there, but if he comes out of it well, feels good, can get a little work in, a little touch and feel, then there's definitely a possibility he can be activated Tuesday." Burnett has been on the DL since April 28 after experiencing left forearm irritation. During his Saturday-night appearance, the southpaw recorded two strikeouts will allowing one hit. Prior to hitting the shelf, Burnett had posted an ERA of 1.04 to go with a 1.385 WHIP over 11 appearances. Los Angeles is also currently without relievers Kevin Jepsen and Ryan Madson.
