Angels pitcher Andrew Heaney lands on injured list with shoulder inflammation

first_imgHeaney believes he could have pitched Sunday if needed.“I think that this is something before I would’ve kept pitching until something blew up,” he said. “That’s never the right way to go about it. I just thought I would be more proactive, try and be a little bit more honest. Sometimes it’s hard. You don’t want to like admit defeat.”Peters, 26, is 1-0 with a 4.15 ERA in four games with the Angels this season. He was 4-1 with a 6.47 ERA in 13 games at Triple-A.WAIVER CLAIMThe Angels claimed left-handed reliever Adalberto Mejia prior to Saturday’s game. The 26-year-old left-hander had an 8.80 ERA in 13 appearances with the Twins this season.Mejia, who is out of options, was designated for assignment July 13. Right-handers batted .310 (13 for 42) against him, but lefties batted just .188 (3 for 16). He was on the injured list with a right calf strain from May 1 to July 2.The Angels have gotten only nine relief appearances from left-handed pitchers this season, the fewest in the majors.Mejia will wear number 49.ALSOAusmus said Felix Peña (Tuesday) and Jaime Barría (Wednesday) will start the two games against the Dodgers next week. … The injury to Heaney hasn’t altered the Angels’ plan to use JC Ramirez as a relief pitcher upon his return, Ausmus said. Ramirez is working his way back from Tommy John surgery last year. … The Angels aren’t moving Trevor Cahill into the rotation for now either. “He’s pitching well lately,” Ausmus said. “To his credit, when we put him in the ’pen he said he’s good with anything. He’s got a great attitude. He’s done a nice job for us lately.” … The Angels will air Tyler Skaggs’ memorial service on a tape delay at 7 p.m. Monday on Fox Sports West. The network previously planned to air the private service live. … A re-broadcast of the July 12 no-hitter against the Mariners will follow.UP NEXTAngels (LHP Dillon Peters) at Mariners (LHP Yusei Kikuchi), 1 p.m., Fox Sports West, 830-AM “I tried pitching through it,” he said. “It just didn’t really recover. It’s something that if we get in front of it now, have a good two months at the end of the year hopefully, if we let it keep getting worse and worse and worse, not only does it make it harder to pitch, but it’s also never really going to bounce back.”The Astros rocked Heaney for nine hits and two runs in 4 ⅓ innings Tuesday, his most recent start. Heaney didn’t feel 100 percent that day, but declined to use the shoulder as an excuse. He said the injury affected his recovery more than his performance. He did not throw a bullpen after his last start.Heaney isn’t sure how much down time he’ll need before he can resume throwing.“Maybe a few days without throwing, getting some treatment, see how quickly I can bounce back,” he said.Related Articles Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone center_img The same stiff shoulder caused the Angels to push back Heaney’s first start after the All-Star break, giving him 10 days of rest between his last two outings.
