Can the Angels use the “bullpen day” in the playoffs?

I was planning on writing this post for about a week now. It was going to be more in the vein of wondering whether or not going with the “bullpen day” starter could hypothetically work, knowing full well that the Angels would never dare try it. But thanks to the oblique injury to Matt Shoemaker, this now has to take on the tone of, “Gosh, I hope they can make it work because...

Rasmus reached 'end point' Tuesday night

Cory Rasmus was cruising through four innings. 43 pitches. 32 strikes. He also had four strikeouts and had given up just one hit. So why didn't Angels skipper Mike Scioscia send him out for the fifth? "In these bullpen days when we've gotten to a certain point of the game with a lead, we've held it and done a good job," Scioscia said. "We had our bullpen...

How the Angels won (08/30): Rasmus sharp in first MLB start

Rasmus brothers join a surprisingly large club

Monday night, Toronto Blue Jays center fielder Colby Rasmus doubled in the bottom of the seventh inning. Usually, not much would be made of such a thing. The game was well in hand for the Blue Jays, and the series itself is one of those weird by-products of the Astros moving to the AL, a brief two game interleague set. The pitcher who surrendered the double, however, made the hit...

The Braves Recall RHP Cory Rasmus From Triple-A

In a move that corresponds to Eric O’Flaherty getting put onto the 15-Day DL, they have recalled RHP Cory Rasmus from Triple-A Gwinnett. Rasmus will be relied upon to help the battered Braves bullpen. He’s recorded a solid 0.93 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and a 21/9 K/BB ratio this season at the Triple-A level. If he starts off well, he could be a solid middle relief pitcher option for National...
