The Angels placed starter C.J. Wilson on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 29, due to elbow inflammation, the club announced on Twitter. Pitcher Drew Rucinski was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake. Jered Weaver is expected to take Wilson’s spot in the rotation when he comes off of the disabled list himself.

Wilson, 34, had fluid drained from his elbow in late April. He’s put together a decent season, sitting on a 3.89 ERA with a 110/46 K/BB ratio over 132 innings.

Weaver, 32, struggled before hitting the DL after his June 20 start due to a hip injury. The right-hander posted a 4.75 ERA with a 49/16 K/BB ratio in 96 2/3 innings. The strikeout rate is by far the lowest of his 10-year career.

LOS ANGELES — Jeff Samardjiza has been placed on the 10-day injured list by the San Francisco Giants due to right shoulder impingement.

Manager Gabe Kapler said before Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers that the right-hander told trainers and the coaching staff that he felt like wasn’t able to get the arm loose during Friday’s game. Samardjiza is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Saturday.

Samardjiza went four-plus innings and allowed six runs on seven hits in a 7-2 loss to the Dodgers. He is 0-2 with a 9.88 ERA in three starts.

The Giants have recalled left-hander Andrew Suarez from their alternate training site, but Kapler said he hasn’t finalized a revised starting rotation.
