 ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -The Los Angeles Angels placed Bartolo Colon on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with a sore right elbow.
Colon, the 2005 AL Cy Young winner, left Monday night's game after pitching one inning against the Oakland Athletics. He gave up four runs on four hits and one walk during the Angels' 12-6 loss.
The 34-year-old Colon was examined Tuesday by Dr. Lewis Yocum and the decision was made to place him on the DL for the fifth time in his career and second time this season. The right-hander will undergo further tests to determine the cause of irritation in his elbow.
The Angels also optioned infielder Kendry Morales to Triple-A Salt Lake, and called up right-handers Greg Jones and Marcus Gwyn from Salt Lake.
Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia said of Colon: ``We're not going to know what we're dealing with until he gets a full examination by Dr. Yocum.''
Scioscia said that since the Angels have Thursday off, he has time to weigh decisions about the club's pitching plans.
Among the possibilities is that, with the day off, their four starters could stick to their regular five-day rotation for one turn.
Asked whether struggling Ervin Santana might be recalled from the minors, Scioscia said: ``Ervin is an option, but we'll take this one step at a time.''
Santana was sent to Salt Lake last Wednesday after losing his fifth consecutive decision to fall to 5-11 with a 6.22 ERA.
Colon, whose 2006 season was shortened by a rotator cuff tear, won his first five decisions this year, but went 1-6 over his next 10 starts - including the short stint against the A's. It was only the fourth time in his career that he lasted one inning or less.
He had a 21-8 record during his Cy Young-winning season, but has gone 7-11 since.
Morales, 24, is hitting .244, with two home runs and seven RBIs in 20 games with the Angels.
The 30-year-old Jones was 4-1 with three saves and a 3.94 ERA in 32 appearances spanning 48 innings at Salt Lake this year. He also pitched twice for the Angels this season, giving up five runs in three innings.
Gwyn, 29, was 1-0 with 1-0 with 13 saves and a 2.78 ERA in 37 appearances.
