Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP C.J. Wilson (elbow) was placed on the disabled list with inflammation in his left elbow Friday, July 31. In a corresponding move, the Angels recalled SP Drew Rucinski from Class AAA Salt Lake.
Fantasy Tip: Check back for an update on whether Rucinski will start. It seems unlikely because he has really struggled with Salt Lake and the Angels. Plus, Jered Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is returning from a hip injury soon, so he could rejoin the rotation in Wilson's spot. Stay tuned for further updates on the severity of Wilson's injury and how long he projects to be out, too.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Cory Rasmus (abdomen) is an option to move into the rotation in place of the injured SP Jered Weaver (hip), according to manager Mike Scioscia. Rasmus would only be able to throw three or four innings, however, as he makes his way back from injury. Class AAA Salt Lake SPs Andrew Heaney, Drew Rucinski, Alex Sanabia, Nick Tropeano and Adam Wilk are also options.
Fantasy Tip: Rasmus should be avoided for fantasy purposes, at least initially, since he'll have an innings cap. Pitching just a few innings would not be attractive for FantasyScore owners.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Drew Rucinski was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake Tuesday, April 14.
Fantasy Tip: Rucinski ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) didn't fare so well against the Texas Rangers in his spot start Tuesday, allowing nine hits and four earned runs in 4 2/3 innings while walking four and striking out two. His spot in the rotation won't be needed with Garrett Richards' (knee) return on the horizon. Rucinski can now be discarded by any AL-only owners that were holding him.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Drew Rucinski is the leading candidate to start against the Texas Rangers Tuesday, April 14, according to manager Mike Scioscia.
Fantasy Tip: Rucinski posted solid numbers in the minor leagues last season but has limited experience with the Angels. Rucinski probably would be a weak option on FantasyScore if he pitches in Texas next week since the Rangers has a solid lineup, so owners may want to look for other options.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Drew Rucinski is likely to fill the team's long-relief role.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim placed SP C.J. Wilson (undisclosed) on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, July 10, and recalled RP Cory Rasmus and Drew Rucinski in corresponding moves. Also, RP Cam Bedrosian was optioned to Double-A Arkansas and RP Nick Maronde was designated for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: The reason for Wilson's DL placement is unknown at this time. Check back soon for updates. He's been pretty bad in his last four starts, so he was probably fighting through some sort of ailment. The All-Star break will luckily afford him extra rest.
