SPs Dustin Moseley, Joe Saunders Called to LA

Starting pitchers Dustin Moseley, replacing Jared Weaver, and Joe Saunders, replacing Kelvim Escobar, are being called to Los Angeles from Salt Lake City. The Angels have announced Weaver will miss at least one start as a precaution to ease mild tendonitis of the bicep, giving Mosely at least one major league start. Saunders is expected to see at least two starts while Escobar serves a 15-day disabled list stint. Saunders owns a 10-3 record with a 2.51 ERA, Moseley 8-4 with a 3.99 ERA, both for the AAA Bees. Moseley will start Monday, Saunders on Tuesday.
