Trevor Bell Skipped, Will Join Angels' Bullpen With Joel Pineiro's Return

With an off day coming up, the Angels have decided to shuffle their rotation, per Dan Woike of the Orange County Register:

The Angels will skip Trevor Bell’s next scheduled start because of Monday’s off day. Bell will work out of the bullpen with Joel Pineiro expected to rejoin to rotation after his rehab start Sunday for class-A Rancho Cucamonga.

Bell has started and relieved for the Angels, and is 2-5 with a 4.72 ERA this season in 25 appearances, including seven starts. He has pitched well in his last three starts, allowing two runs in each game, but only has one win to show for it.

Pineiro is 10-7 with a 4.18 ERA in 20 starts for the Angels, but he has been on the disabled list since July 22 with a strained left oblique.

Woike also noted that Scott Shields is expected to rejoin the bullpen soon, after experiencing left elbow tightness earlier this week.
