K-Rod Out Monday and Possibly More

The Angels web site reported today that closer Francisco Rodriguez has a strained right forearm and his status was "uncertain" in the near term. Scot Shields will take over the closing duties in K-Rod's absence. Shields converted his third save of the season on Monday, sitting down the Indians in order including two strikeouts.

This is troubling. The Halo pen has been exemplary but if they lose Rodriguez for any length of time is will mean a lot more Kevin Gregg (5.85 ERA) and Esteban Yan (4.08 ERA) in the 7th and 8th innings. Shields is a stud and closing will be no problem for him. It's getting to Shields that is the worry. The starters are going to have to step-up their game in the short term to make up for this loss.
