Scott Kazmir to DL as Angels Announce Roster

The strained right hamstring of Scott Kazmir will mean that Matt Palmer is the 5ht starter for the Angels to open the 2010 campaign. The Angels announced their opening day roster immediately following the final game of Spring Training Saturday afternoon.

As expected, the club will carry a 3rd catcher, Bobby Wilson, to accompany Mike Napoli and Jeff Mathis.

Outfielder Terry Evans and Utility veteran Robb Quinlan will be in uniform in Anaheim on Monday night for Opening Day. Pinch runner Reggie Willits will also begin 2010 on the Disabled List with a strained right hamstring.

There were no radical departures from the Angels script after Kazmir's hammy strain, which seems to be closer to a mild tweak than to anything chronic. Fear of a cascade injury affecting the other already suspect part's of Kazmir's anatomy were likely as important in the decision to rest and rehab an ache now. The Angels system is known for taking minor tweaks seriously early in the season when it comes to its pitching staff.

ANGELS 2010 Opening Day 25-Man Roster:

Starting 5: Jered Weaver, Ervin Santana, Joe Saunders, Joel Piñeiro, Matt Palmer

Bullpen: Brian Fuentes, Fernando Rodney, Kevin Jepsen, Jason Bulger, Scot Shields, Brian Stokes

Catchers: Mike Napoli, Jeff Mathis, Bobby Wilson

Infielders: Kendry Morales, Howie Kendrick, Erick Aybar, Brandon Wood, Maicer Izturis, Robb Quinlan

Outfielders: Bobby Abreu, Torii Hunter, Juan Rivera, Hideki Matsui, Terry Evans

Disabled List: Scott Kazmir, Reggie Willits, Chris Pettit, Anthony Ortega
