(5/21/2014) Angels pitching prospect R.J. Alvarez was placed on the minor-league disabled list with elbow tenderness Wednesday, MLB.com reports.
The Angels are being cautious with the prospect, who could be in line to make his major-league debut this season if he can remain healthy. Alvarez has made 12 relief appearances with Double-A Arkansas, pitching 19 scoreless innings while striking out 28 batters and walking five.
