Angels place Matt Harvey on 10-day injured list with upper back strain
Anaheim, Calif. — The Los Angeles Angels placed Matt Harvey on the 10-day injured list with an upper back strain on Saturday, two days after what he deemed an "embarrassing" loss and one of the worst starts of his career.
Harvey allowed eight earned runs and gave up four homers in the Angels' 16-7 loss to the Twins on Thursday. The Twins tied a franchise record with eight home runs in the game.
Harvey signed a one-year, $11 million deal in the offseason but hasn't lived up to expectations.
He's 2-4 with a 7.50 ERA this season.
