Angels place LHP Jose Quintana (shoulder) on IL

The Los Angeles Angels placed Jose Quintana on the injured list Monday with left shoulder inflammation and recalled fellow left-hander Jose Quijada from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Quintana, 32, was 0-3 with a 7.22 ERA in his first nine starts as a member of the Angels. He worked three innings Sunday against the Oakland Athletics, allowing two runs while recording five strikeouts before leaving the game with shoulder soreness.

A veteran of 10 major league seasons, Quintana is 83-80 in 263 career appearances (256 starts) with a 3.80 ERA for the Chicago White Sox (2012-17), Chicago Cubs (2017-2020) and Angels. He was an All-Star in 2016.

Quijada, 25, made one scoreless appearance with the Angels earlier this season and is 2-4 over 41 big league relief appearances with the Miami Marlins (2019) and Angels. He did not give up an earned run in six relief appearances (nine innings) at Salt Lake this season.
