Angels placed RHP Andrew Bailey on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to August 18, with a right shoulder strain.
Bailey hasn't pitched in nearly a week, but it's clear he was never over the shoulder ailment that's kept him out most of the season. He's a poor bet to contribute any more this year. Aug 21 - 7:17 PM

Angels activated RHP Andrew Bailey from the 60-day disabled list.

Bailey is finally back after a four-month bout with shoulder inflammation. The injury-prone right-hander looked rusty during his minor league rehab, producing a lethargic 7.04 ERA over eight outings between the Arizona League and Triple-A Salt Lake. Closer duties are up for grabs in Anaheim with Bud Norris quickly losing his grip on the ninth inning, but Bailey probably won't be a candidate for saves, at least not initially.

Andrew Bailey (shoulder) could be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

He is currently with the team, though hasn't been activated for Friday's game. The veteran right-hander claims that he's feeling good and is ready to go, despite struggling on his minor league rehab assignment.
Aug 11 - 7:20 PM

Andrew Bailey (shoulder) has resumed his rehab assignment with Triple-A Salt Lake.

Bailey has been out nearly all season and has had numerous starts and stops with his shoulder issues. He's posted a 14.73 ERA in four rehab games with Salt Lake and is a poor bet to contribute much for the Angels down the stretch.
Aug 4 - 12:58 PM

Andrew Bailey (shoulder) will resume throwing in the next few days.

Bailey has been on the shelf for two months and had a setback last month. Even if all goes well from here on out, it figures to be a little while before he's ready to rejoin the Angels' bullpen.
Jun 2 - 10:30 AM

Angels transferred RHP Andrew Bailey from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The Angels needed to make room for Doug Fister on the 40-man roster and Bailey wasn't going to be back before June 9, which is when he's first eligible to come off the 60-day DL. Bailey suffered a setback last week and hasn't resumed throwing yet. It's anyone's guess when he'll return to the Angels' bullpen.
May 20 - 4:18 PM

Andrew Bailey (shoulder) has been cleared to resume a throwing program.

Bailey felt renewed soreness in his right shoulder during a bullpen session last week, but an exam revealed no "no new findings," according to Angels general manager Billy Eppler. "He will progress as tolerated," Eppler added. Bailey has been out since the second week of the season.
May 15 - 8:47 PM

Andrew Bailey (shoulder) is in a "holding pattern" after suffering a setback during a recent bullpen session.

Bailey said he "felt a little something" while throwing the other day and now the Angels have shut him down until further notice. The Halos' bullpen has been hit hard by injuries this year. Bailey, Cam Bedrosian (groin) and Huston Street (lat) are all sidelined right now, leaving ninth-inning duties in the hands of Bud Norris.
May 11 - 7:24 PM

Andrew Bailey (shoulder) will resume throwing off a mound in the middle or end of next week.

Bailey has already been long-tossing. Working his way back from right shoulder inflammation, Bailey should rejoin the Angels' bullpen sometime next month.
Apr 28 - 12:48 PM

Angels placed RHP Andrew Bailey on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.

There is no current timetable for Bailey's return. The veteran right-hander had thrown three scoreless frames through the first week-plus of the season. J.C. Ramirez figures to see additional work setting up for Cam Bedrosian while Bailey works his way back from this shoulder injury.
Apr 12 - 7:17 PM

Angels re-signed RHP Andrew Bailey to a one-year, $1 million contract.

The deal includes incentives. Angels general manager Billy Eppler said Monday that the two sides were working on a new deal and they were able to get something done relatively quickly. Bailey posted a 2.38 ERA over 12 appearances with six saves down the stretch and will function in a set-up role in front of Cam Bedrosian and Huston Street next season. Assuming he can stay healthy, that is.

Angels general manager Billy Eppler said Monday that the club is working on a deal to re-sign Andrew Bailey.

Bailey pitched well in the final month of the season for the Halos, posting a 2.38 ERA over 12 appearances while netting six saves. It's unclear whether the 32-year-old would receive a major or minor league contract. Eppler cautioned that a deal wasn't done yet.

Andrew Bailey notched his fourth save by protecting a one-run lead in the ninth Wednesday against the Rangers.

Bailey had an ugly outing after entering with the Angels down five days ago, but he's been great in his save chances, allowing a total of one hit and no walk in four scoreless innings. He'll finish out the year as a closer.

After entering with the Angels trailing 2-0, Andrew Bailey gave up three runs while retiring just one batter Friday against the Blue Jays.

It wasn't a save chance and the Angels probably weren't coming back in this one anyway, so Bailey still seems like the choice for saves in the Anaheim pen. One more poor outing could change that, though.
Sat, Sep 17, 2016 01:51:00 AM

Andrew Bailey earned his third save Sunday in the Angels' 3-2 defeat of the Rangers.

Bailey worked a 1-2-3 inning on 10 pitches, eight of which went for strikes. He whiffed Nomar Mazara to end the game. The veteran right-hander probably hasn't suddenly rediscovered his former All-Star stuff, but he's in a good position to continue getting saves in a bad Angels bullpen.
