Angels place struggling Harvey on IL

mlb10The Los Angeles Angels placed right-hander Matt Harvey on the 10-day injured list on Saturday due to an upper back strain.

The move comes two days after Harvey served up four homers and was hammered for eight runs and seven hits in just 2 2/3 innings against the Minnesota Twins.

The poor outing leaves the 30-year-old Harvey with a 2-4 record and 7.50 ERA in 10 starts this season.

The Angels also activated right-hander Luis Garcia (back) from the IL, optioned right-hander Luke Bard to Triple-A Salt Lake and recalled right-hander Taylor Cole from the same affiliate.

Garcia, 32, was 0-1 with a 2.25 ERA in 18 appearances for the Angels before going on the IL on May 13.

The 28-year-old Bard is 1-2 with a 4.22 ERA in 16 appearances (two starts) for the Angels. He made two scoreless appearances for Salt Lake earlier this season.

Cole, 29, is back after being sent down on Friday. He has a 3.38 ERA in six appearances (one start) for the Angels.
