Angels activated RHP Cory Rasmus from the 60-day disabled list.
Rasmus had been on the shelf since early July after undergoing core muscle surgery. The 28-year-old right-hander struggled in his 21 2/3 frames prior to being sidelined by that surgery, pitching to a 5.40 ERA and 1.43 WHIP. There is no fantasy intrigue here. Sep 14 - 8:25 PM

Cory Rasmus (abdomen) is scheduled to pitch an inning for rookie-level Orem on Thursday.

Rasmus will make one more minor league rehab appearance after that (if the schedule allows for it) and should then return to the Angels' bullpen early next week. He underwent core muscle surgery in July.

Cory Rasmus (abdomen) has resumed throwing off a mound.

Angels transferred RHP Cory Rasmus from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Cory Rasmus (groin) will undergo core surgery.

Rasmus underwent core surgery a year ago March, too, which makes the Angels' announcement that much more concerning. This season, he has already landed on the disabled list twice due to a groin injury. His upcoming surgery could well cost him the remainder of what is rapidly turning into a lost 2016 season.
Jul 6 - 8:33 PM

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

Rasmus just returned from a groin strain last Thursday, but he has apparently aggravated the injury. The Angels have added Al Alburquerque and A.J. Achter to their bullpen for Monday's game versus the Twins.
Jun 13 - 7:32 PM

Angels activated RHP Cory Rasmus from the 15-day disabled list.

Reliever Greg Mahle was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake in the corresponding roster move. Rasmus missed about three weeks with a strained groin. The right-hander holds an ugly 5.59 ERA over 11 outings this year.
Jun 9 - 4:20 PM

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

Rasmus told reporters Tuesday that he thinks the strain is minor, but he could still be looking at a lengthy absence. The right-hander has posted a 5.59 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, and 12/13 K/BB ratio in 19 1/3 innings (one spot start, 10 relief appearances) this season.
May 17 - 7:05 PM

Making a spot start, Cory Rasmus was tagged for five runs in 2 1/3 innings by the Rays in a loss Friday.

Rasmus was replacing Garrett Richards in the rotation tonight, but he'll probably return to the pen next week, with Matt Shoemaker taking his spot.
May 7 - 1:59 AM

Angels activated RHP Cory Rasmus from the 15-day disabled list.

He missed a couple weeks with a strained forearm. Rasmus figures to be used in long relief this month.

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.

He'll take Mike Morin's spot in the Angels' bullpen. Rasmus had core muscle surgery in March and has been limited to just 10 appearances (including three starts) at the Triple-A level this year.
Thu, Jul 30, 2015 04:39:00 PM

Angels optioned RHP Cory Rasmus to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Rasmus was up as the 26th man during Monday's doubleheader but didn't make an appearance. He'll be back at some point.
