ANAHEIM, Calif. — The Los Angeles Angels placed ace Jered Weaver on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured left elbow on Tuesday.
Weaver, who was diagnosed with a non-displaced radial head fracture, is expected to miss at least four weeks. The right-hander left Sunday’s loss against the Texas Rangers in the sixth inning after jamming his non-throwing arm while dodging a line drive. Prior to confirmation, he said to have suffered a strained elbow.
The Angels called up right-hander Dane De La Rosa from Triple-A Salt Lake to replace Weaver on the roster. De La Rosa was acquired in a trade last month from Tampa Bay in exchange for right-hander Steven Geltz.
