ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Los Angeles Angels placed left-hander Tyler Skaggs on the 15-day disabled list Friday because of a strained forearm and recalled left-hander Michael Roth from Double-A Arkansas.

Skaggs was hurt Thursday night in a 1-0, 13-inning win at Baltimore. The left-hander had not allowed a hit when he left with two outs in the fifth.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia hopes Skaggs will pitch again this season, but says the injury "might take a little bit of time" to heal

Skaggs is 5-5 with 4.30 ERA in 18 starts this season.

Roth is making his second stint with the Angels this season. In his lone appearance this year, he went two perfect innings to get a win against Houston on July 5.
