ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -The Los Angeles Angels activated pitcher Kelvim Escobar from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday and optioned outfielder Tommy Murphy to Triple-A Salt Lake.
Escobar, who had been sidelined since April 9 with irritation in his shoulder, pitched 5 2-3 innings in a no-decision against the Detroit Tigers. The right-hander allowed four runs - three earned - and five hits while striking out six and walking two. He is 1-1 with a 3.18 ERA
``I felt strong the whole time,'' Escobar said. ``I'm very happy about the way I felt after coming off the DL with the shoulder issues.''
The 27-year-old Murphy has had only two at-bats in three games for the Angels this season. He appeared in 48 games last season as a rookie, hitting .229.
