This from the Angels blog via OC Register:
The Angels placed setup man Scot Shields on the 15-day disabled list with left patella tendinitis and recalled reliever Rich Thompson from Triple-A Salt Lake.
A second post quoted Shields in reference to his last outing:
"There were some good days, but today I wasn’t even thinking about the hitters. I was just thinking about how much pain is this going to be?" Shields said. "When it came to that point, I was just like, ‘I can’t go on like that.’ "
Hope Shields gets better. Until then, break out the Welcome Wagon for Rich Thompson, the next one in-line of the ever revolving door that is the 2009 Angels blow-pen.
