19-year-old Cam Bedrosian, who was drafted 29th overall by the Angels last summer, underwent Tommy John surgery earlier this month, the team announced today.

The son of former major league reliever Steve Bedrosian figures to remain sidelined into the 2012 season. 

Bedrosian hadn’t pitched this season.  He had a 4.50 ERA in 12 innings in Rookie ball after signing last year.  The Angels planned to develop him as a starter, but some thought he might follow in his dad’s footsteps and become a major league closer.

Twins second baseman Brian Dozier entered Tuesday night’s action having hit safely in all 17 games this season and in 24 games consecutively dating back to last season. Sadly for him and for the Twins, that streak ended with an 0-for-4 performance against the Yankees.

Dozier grounded out in the first inning, flied out in the third, grounded out in the sixth, and grounded out again in the eighth.

Despite his streak ending, Dozier still has good numbers on the year. He’s hitting .291/.356/.494 with four home runs, 10 RBI, and 15 runs scored in 87 plate appearances.
