The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have called up RP Cam Bedrosian from Double-A Arkansas and optioned RP Michael Kohn.
Fantasy Tip: No word yet on where Kohn is going, but it's presumably Triple-A Salt Lake. Bedrosian is a closer type who's a long-term fantasy watch candidate. He could probably help in AL-only leagues immediately thanks to his big K potential.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia is still searching for a consistent third reliever who can join RPs Joe Smith and Ernesto Frieri in closing out games efficiently. "It puts a lot of pressure on Joe Smith and Frieri to be really the only two guys who are throwing the ball at a level to shut games down. Whether it's Michael Kohn or Fernando Salas, some of these guys has to move deeper into the game, or we're going to have trouble finding that continuity."

While it could be subject to change, the bullpen pecking order for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim appears to be RP Ernesto Frieri as closer, with RPs Fernando Salas and Joe Smith in a setup role. RPs Kevin Jepsen, Michael Kohn and Nick Maronde will work in the middle innings.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Ernesto Frieri has temporarily lost his closer job and will be used in low-pressure situations for now.
Fantasy Tip: It appears Dane De La Rosa will get the first chance to close games out, but Kevin Jepsen and Michael Kohn could also receive opportunities. De La Rosa should be an option for mixed league owners looking for saves. Jepsen and Kohn should be targeted in AL-only leagues and some mixed leagues if an owner is desperate, but they may not be good pickups because Frieri could regain the job at some point.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim placed 3B Alberto Callaspo (calf) on the 15-day disabled list Friday, April 19, and recalled P Michael Kohn from the minors in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Callaspo hadn't been improving enough to warrant keeping him on the roster. Luis Jimenez has been filling in at the hot corner nicely and should now be added in AL leagues.
