Angels place Kevin Jepsen on DL
Jepsen had surgery Saturday in Seattle.
The Angels also recalled outfielder Collin Cowgill from Triple-A Salt Lake City.
Angels manager Mike Scioscia said the operation will keep Jepsen sidelined for four to six weeks but added he doesn't realistically expect Jepsen to return this season. Jepsen has appeared in 45 games for the Angels with a 1-3 record and 4.50 ERA.
Cowgill is batting .231 with three home runs and 11 RBIs in 48 games with Los Angeles.
