Joe Saunders, "Dead Arm" Victim

Just what the Angels need, another potential problem with a starting pitcher.

Manager Mike Scioscia said he was "disappointed with some of the reports" from Joe Saunders' minor league start on Monday and that the left-hander may be experiencing a little dead-arm phase.

Saunders, who allowed five runs and 10 hits in 6 1/3 innings and threw 92 pitches, also could have been fatigued from a weekend bout with food poisoning.

"He got his work in, and his stuff picked up a bit as the game went on, but he wasn't as crisp," Scioscia said. "He could have a little spring-training arm. It could be from the food poisoning."
