Angels transferred LHP Brian Moran from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move was made in order to clear room on the 40-man roster for Yoslan Herrera. Moran will miss the 2014 season following Tommy John surgery.

Brian Moran needs Tommy John elbow surgery.

The Angels acquired Moran from the Blue Jays in December's Rule 5 Draft, but he opened the 2014 season on the disabled list and will now be sidelined through the early part of 2015. Moran, 25, owns a 3.06 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and 339 strikeouts in 288 minor league innings.

Brian Moran (elbow) has not progressed to throwing off a mound.

Moran, a Rule 5 pick, was placed on the disabled list at the end of spring training with left elbow inflammation. The 25-year-old left-hander has resumed throwing, but isn't ready for mound-work quite yet. The Angels will keep him stashed on the DL for now.

Angels placed LHP Brian Moran on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 21, with left elbow inflammation.

The Angels will stash the Rule 5 pick on the DL until he gets better. The 25-year-old allowed one run in four appearances this spring.

Brian Moran will have his sore right elbow examined Saturday.

It's not clear how long the Rule 5 pick has been nursing the injury, but the Angels seem likely to stash Moran on the disabled list to start the season. The 25-year-old has allowed one run in four appearances this spring.

Blue Jays selected LHP Brian Moran from the Mariners in the 2013 Rule 5 draft; traded him to the Angels for international cap space.

The Angels have made adding young arms a priority in recent days -- acquiring Tyler Skaggs and Hector Santiago in the Mark Trumbo trade -- and Moran falls in line with that pursuit. Moran only works in the mid-80s, but he's been hugely successful in the minor leagues (3.06 ERA and 339/78 K/BB rate over 288 career innings) and most in the industry expect him to stick in the majors this year. He misses bats and throws strikes, which should help him win a left-handed specialist role in the Angels' bullpen this coming season.
