Angels put Colon on DL with triceps tendinitis

BOSTON -- The Los Angeles Angels placed Bartolo Colon, the
2005 AL Cy Young Award winner, on the 15-day disabled list Sunday
with tendinitis in his right triceps.

Right-handed reliever Greg Jones was added to the roster to
replace Colon. Jones was 4-5 with a 4.00 ERA at Triple-A Salt Lake.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia did not have a replacement yet for
Colon's scheduled start on Tuesday.

Colon gave up four runs and four hits against Tampa Bay on
Wednesday in his last start, leaving after one inning with
irritation in his right elbow. He is eligible to come off the DL on
Aug. 11.

"Right now at this part of the season for Bart to miss any
starts becomes tough," Scioscia said. "But we'd rather have him
as close to being whole than to keep limping."

Colon was on the disabled list from April 19 to June 17 because
of right shoulder inflammation. In all, he is 1-5 with a 5.11 ERA
in 10 starts this season.
