The Los Angeles Angels haven't been playing their best baseball of late, losing 11 of their last 20 contests. Much of that can be attributed to the team's lackluster pitching staff, which owns the league's second-worst cumulative ERA (5.03), trailing only the Baltimore Orioles (5.04).

Unfortunately, it seems like things could be getting worse before they get better. Jose Quintana had some discomfort in his shoulder recently and will be evaluated further in the coming days. While there's not too much known about his injury right now, this could be a precursor to a move that lands him on the Injured List.

Jose Quintana Injury Update

While Quintana has not been great this season, Los Angeles isn't exactly in a position to be losing arms. The Angels are 6.0 games behind the Oakland Athletics in the AL West and already own one of the league's worst staffs.

Still, Quintana's struggles have contributed to that. He owns a whopping 7.22 ERA through 9 starts in 33 2/3 innings pitched. We still don't know how long this will sideline him, but he could certainly use some time off.

Hopefully he can get his shoulder issue addressed and get his season back on track once he's healthy.
