LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Angels have placed left-hander C.J. Wilson on the 15-day disabled list with left elbow inflammation.

The Angels also recalled right-hander Drew Rucinski from Triple-A Salt Lake and optioned Efren Navarro to the minors.

Wilson is 8-8 with a 3.89 ERA this season for the Angels. He yielded six runs and six hits in four innings in a loss Tuesday to the Astros, who swept a three-game series with Los Angeles to reclaim the AL West lead.

Wilson's absence could open a rotation spot next week for right-hander Jered Weaver, who has been out for a month with hip inflammation.

Rucinski or Triple-A starter Nick Tropeano could take Wilson's scheduled turn in the rotation Sunday when the Angels finish a three-game Freeway Series with the Dodgers.
