Cory Rasmus (forearm) has been playing catch and told reporters Tuesday that he feels great.

Rasmus should be fine to rejoin the Angels' bullpen when rosters expand in September if his rehab for a right forearm strain continues to go smoothly. He has a 5.06 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 13/5 K/BB ratio in 10 2/3 innings this season at the major league level.

Angels placed RHP Cory Rasmus on the 15-day disabled list with a right forearm strain.

The right-hander has only appeared in seven games for the Halos this season, compiling a 5.06 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 13/5 K/BB ratio over 10 2/3 innings. He should be ready to rejoin the bullpen in September.

Cory Rasmus allowed two runs on three hits over three innings in earning a no-decision against the Dodgers on Sunday.

Rasmus was starting in place of the injured C.J. Wilson. Primarily a reliever, the Angels let him go three innings against the Dodgers on Sunday. He pitched adequately (if not spectacularly) in his time on the mound, striking out three and walking none. A two-run home run by Howie Kendrick in the third inning accounted for both runs against Rasmus. The Angels have yet to announce how they will be setting up their rotation moving forward, so another start is not a given for the 27-year-old.
