Colon left off ALCS roster with shoulder injury

first_imgCHICAGO — Bartolo Colon is not on the Angels’ American League Championship Series roster because of an inflamed right shoulder and will undergo an MRI exam today. The Angels still hold out hope that Colon’s injury isn’t significant, and he can be placed on the roster for the World Series, if the team gets there. The Angels had to have their roster set by 10 a.m. Tuesday morning, and activated reliever Esteban Yan in place of Colon. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “We assumed it was his back or maybe he pulled a groin,’ Stoneman said. Said manager Mike Scioscia: “Bart’s a horse. When he says he’s hurt, it’s significant. Hopefully it’s something that can be dealt with short term. We’re not ruling him out of we’re fortunate to move on.’ The Angels are going with a pitching rotation of Paul Byrd, Jarrod Washburn, John Lackey and Ervin Santana. Washburn will make his first postseason start tonight in Game 2 after a bout with strep throat. He was supposed to pitch Game 4 of the AL Division Series against the Yankees last Sunday, but was too sick. “I have no idea how I got it,’ Washburn said. “My wife and kids were with me and they’re all fine. I hardly ever get sick. I’m feeling much better but I’m still a little weak and I don’t have all my strength back.’ Washburn said he didn’t eat for two days, then finally had some soup Tuesday. “I just want to help the guys,’ Washburn said. “I felt I let them down the last series when I couldn’t get out there and do my part.’ Washburn dealt with elbow tendinitis off and on all season, but he hasn’t pitched in a game since Oct. 1, so the arm won’t be an issue. “His elbow discomfort seems like it’s behind him now,’ Scioscia said. “Stamina is an issue. Can he go 90-100 pitches and go deep enough into the game?’ Stoneman said he has not been contacted by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, who are rumored to be interested in talking with Angels bench coach Joe Maddon about their vacant managerial position. “I’d love to do it, but I haven’t heard anything,’ said Maddon, who’s been in the Angels organization since 1981. “It has to come through Bill. I believe in going through the proper channels. They have a bunch of young talent, as good a group as I’ve seen. They compare to ours from a couple years ago. They’ve done a great job with scouting and developing.’ A lot was made last year of the Red Sox’s first World Series victory since 1918, but the White Sox haven’t won a World Series since 1917. And if they do it this year? “Watch out Mayor Daley, I might be the next mayor,’ White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said. “Believe me, I’ve never seen so much enthusiasm and so many people around Chicago so excited about it. I don’t care if you’re a Cubs fan, a Bulls fan, a Bears fan. I think a lot of people are Chicago fans. The name we wear on the chest says `Chicago,’ not `South Side.” Vladimir Guerrero started at designated hitter Tuesday, and Garret Anderson likely will be the DH tonight. Juan Rivera started in right field Tuesday and would get the nod in left tonight if Anderson is the DH. “You talk about Garret, (Darin) Erstad, Vlad, Bengie (Molina), these guys really have been grinding and are banged up,’ Scioscia said. “This gives us a chance to get (Guerrero) out of his druthers of playing right field.’ The White Sox’s Game 2 starter tonight, Mark Buehrle, said he respects the Angels offense, but also said, “I don’t think they’re as good offensively as Boston is.’ Anderson has had more success against Buehrle in his career than most Angels, even though it’s a lefty vs. lefty matchup. “He stays in against lefties,’ Buehrle said. “Most guys, Vlad or maybe Adam (Kennedy), they bail. He stays in there. I think he’s one of the best left-handed hitters against left-handed pitching.’ Joe Haakenson can be reached at (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2239, or by e-mail at joe.haakenson@sgvn.com. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

(The shoulder injury) sprung at the last second and we ran with the information we had. Our best guess was he would not be available for this series.’ Colon lasted only 23 pitches when he was removed from Monday’s Game 5 against the Yankees, one batter into the second inning. He’s been bothered by a sore back in the last month or so, but the shoulder problem caught the Angels a little by surprise. last_img

first_imgOne of the mising pets, Otto, which was found safe after being stolen from its Letterkenny home.Christmas has come early for one Donegal family after their three stolen pet greyhounds were found safe and well.The McKeever family were left devastated on Saturday morning after they awoke to find their home broken into and their beloved dogs taken.The gate at the rear of their home in Letterkenny had been twisted and the three pets taken from sheds. Dad John McKeever said his family were left heartbroken as they had raised the two pups from a litter of 13 which were born last January.“We heard barking in the middle of the night but didn’t think much of it.“But when we woke up we knew the gate had been twisted off and the dogs were gone.“We were just gutted that anybody would do such a thing,” said John. John revealed the whoever stole the dogs from his home at Ballymacool were prepared as they had their own leads and did not steal any of the dog’s leads which were hanging in the sheds.The family including John’s wife Noreen and children Grainne, 19, ad Ronan, 21, immediately put the word out by social media about the missing pets.John said “I would have always been skeptical about social media and Facebook but I have seen first-hand the power of it.“We had everyone looking for the dogs and it wasn’t long before we had people making a number of possible sightings,” he said.And to the family’s delight just before 6pm on Saturday evening, a young boy called to the house and said he had found the dogs straying on the street. John said he would not like to think what would have happened to the family’s pets if they had not launched a search for the dogs named Tiger, Otto and Buddy.“The mother dog Tiger is old so they might have just dumped her or shot her and the two pups would probably have been used for lurching.“We’re just so thankful to have them back because we have had them since they were born.“The next time the kids are on Facebook all day, I won’t be giving out too much,” laughed John.
