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.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Michael Kohn (forearm) was shut down from his throwing program and will seek a second opinion on his flexor tendon injury.
