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.

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.

Andrew Bailey pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning Monday versus the Athletics to record his second save in as many days.

Bailey struck out a pair in the frame, as he hasn't allowed a baserunner in two save chances since surprisingly taking over as the Angels' closer. The veteran reliever was just signed to a minor league deal last month and called up a few days ago, but it's clear he's manager Mike Scioscia's preferred option in the ninth at this point.

Andrew Bailey worked a perfect ninth inning on Sunday, protecting a two-run advantage to earn his first save since the 2013 season.

The Angels were forced to empty out their bullpen after Matt Shoemaker was hit by a line drive and forced from the game in the second inning. There had been speculation that J.C. Ramirez would be the first in line for save chances after the departure of Fernando Salas, but Ramirez was called upon to work the seventh and eighth innings with Bailey getting the ball in the ninth. With a successful conversion, it'd be surprising if he didn't get the ball the next save chance that arises, making him an interesting add in all formats.

Angels purchased the contract of RHP Andrew Bailey from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Bailey was signed to a minor league deal last month after the Phillies released him following a 6.40 ERA in 33 appearances. The former closer figures to be used in low-leverage situations even in the Angels' disaster of a bullpen.

Angels signed RHP Andrew Bailey to a minor league contract.

He'll report to Triple-A Salt Lake. Bailey was released by the Phillies last week after going 3-1 with a 6.40 ERA in 33 appearances. The 32-year-old was a dominant closer early in his career but his past several seasons have been derailed by injuries and ineffectiveness.

Phillies released RHP Andrew Bailey.

Bailey was designated for assignment on Tuesday. Ultimately he decided to look for work elsewhere instead of reporting to the minor leagues. Injuries have limited the former American League Rookie of the Year to 41 innings over his last three seasons.

Phillies designated RHP Andrew Bailey for assignment.

Luis Garcia has been called up to take his place on the active roster. Bailey got off to a strong start this season, but he has struggled miserably over the past two months and owns a 6.40 ERA and 1.45 WHIP over 33 appearances on the year.

Phillies activated RHP Andrew Bailey from the 15-day disabled list.

Bailey missed a couple weeks of action with a strained hamstring. He's posted a 4.39 ERA and 28/9 K/BB ratio over 26 2/3 relief innings for the Phils this season.

Phillies placed RHP Andrew Bailey on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 23, with a left hamstring strain.

Bailey probably didn't need 15 days to recover, but the Phils have decided not to play shorthanded in the bullpen for a few days. Edubray Ramos has replaced Bailey on the roster.

Andrew Bailey suffered a mild left hamstring strain in Wednesday's game against the Twins.

Bailey recorded three outs in the sixth inning but limped into the tunnel after the conclusion of the frame. It was initially speculated that he might be suffering from a groin injury, but the Phillies passed along word that it is a left hamstring strain instead. A disabled list stint is very possible. For the time being, the team has labeled him day-to-day. Bailey will be reevaluated on Thursday.
