  • Angels' Jose Quijada: Undergoes surgery

    Quijada (elbow) underwent Tommy John surgery on his left elbow May 17, per

    An MRI and multiple doctors' opinions in early May determined that Quijada needed the season-ending procedure. The lefty reliever is slated to miss about 12 months, so he could return around the middle of 2024. Quijada recorded four saves and five holds while posting a 6.00 ERA and 1.22 WHIP over 10 appearances prior to going down with the injury.

  • Angels' Jose Quijada: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Quijada (elbow) was transferred from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day injured list by the Angels on Monday.

    It's a procedural move that clears room on the 40-man roster, and the Angels needed it to selected the contract of Cesar Valdez on Monday. Quijada will miss the rest of the 2023 season after it was revealed that the left-hander will need to undergo Tommy John surgery on his left elbow.

  • Angels' Jose Quijada: Ligament damage found in MRI

    Angels manager Phil Nevin said Tuesday that an MRI on Quijada's left elbow reviewed some ligament damage, but the southpaw will receive a second opinion before it will be determined whether he'll need to have surgery, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Registerreports.

    Nevin called the first opinion that Quijada received "discouraging," based on the report provided by doctors. Quijada will get the second opinion before an announcement is made regarding the severity of the injury and whether it will require surgery. Even if a procedure isn't deemed necessary, the 27-year-old appears likely to be sidelined beyond the minimum 15 days.

  • Angels' Jose Quijada: Implodes for first blown save

    Quijada (0-1) blew the save and took the loss against the Royals on Saturday, allowing five runs on two hits and two walks over two-thirds of an inning.

    Quijada had been great this season coming into Saturday, holding opponents scoreless and notching four saves while posting an 8:1 BB:K over eight innings. However, he couldn't seal the deal in the ninth inning against Kansas City, allowing six of the eight batters he faced to reach base. The southpaw plunked two hitters and walked another two while throwing just 15 of 27 pitches for strikes, so he clearly didn't have his stuff working for him. Despite the poor outing, Quijada's strong start to the campaign should allow him to remain in contention for save chances alongside Carlos Estevez for the Angels.

  • Angels' Jose Quijada: Snags another save

    Quijada picked up the save in Friday's 2-0 victory over the Royals. He surrendered one hit but didn't allow a run while striking out two over one inning.

    Quijada has converted the last two save opportunities for the Angels. The lefty has four saves in eight appearances and has yet to allow a run. Quijada's main competition for saves, right-hander Carlos Estevez, pitched a perfect eighth. Quijada may be the saves leader now, but the Angels will likely play matchups all season.

  • Angels' Jose Quijada: Grabs third save

    Quijada earned a save against the Yankees on Tuesday, striking out two batters in a scoreless inning.

    Quijada got the call with the Angels up 5-2 heading into the bottom of the ninth inning. The southpaw faced two right-handers in Kyle Higashioka and Anthony Volpe along with switch hitter Aaron Hicks, retiring the trio in order on just 10 pitches. Quijada leads Los Angeles with three saves on the campaign, while Carlos Estevez has two. It bears mentioning that Estevez had pitched twice in the previous three days prior to Tuesday, which may have been a factor in holding him out. Still, Quijada has had a great start to the campaign with seven scoreless innings during which he's posted a 6:1 BB:K, and he appears to be more of a co-closer than a second option.
