LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Angels put ace Jered Weaver on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday with a fracture in his left elbow, an injury that will sideline the righty for at least four weeks.

Initial X-rays of the elbow taken Sunday in Texas were negative, and Weaver, who jammed the elbow as he hit the ground to avoid a Mitch Moreland line drive up the middle, was diagnosed with a strain. But more tests on Monday revealed a more significant injury.

The Angels expect to add righty Garrett Richards to the rotation.

Rays move past blown call

ARLINGTON, Texas - Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon signed the lineup card for Joe Nathan's 300th career save and gave it to the Rangers closer, despite plate umpire Marty Foster's blown call on a game-ending strike three that bailed out Nathan on Monday.

Foster admitted to Maddon and reporters that the curveball to Ben Zobrist was low and outside. A walk would have given the Rays runners at second and first. Maddon thanked Foster and said, "For me, for us, it's over with."

Inside pitch

• Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke went to a hospital emergency room Tuesday because of back pain and rejoined the team hours later at Wrigley Field.
