The Los Angeles Angels placed left-hander Jose Quijada on the 10-day injured list on Sunday due to a right oblique strain.

The Angels said the move was retroactive to Friday.

Los Angeles also promoted left-hander Brian Moran to the 28-man roster and designated right-hander Kyle Tyler for assignment.

Quijada faced one batter this season, retiring Houston’s Michael Brantley on a flyball to end the seventh inning on Thursday. He warmed up in the bullpen on Saturday night but didn’t enter the game.

The 26-year-old from Venezuela went 0-2 with a 4.56 ERA in 26 relief appearances for the Angels last season. Overall, he is 2-6 with a 5.31 ERA in 67 games over four seasons with the Miami Marlins (2019) and Angels.

Moran, 33, will be making his Angels’ debut should he enter a game. He is 2-0 with a 6.55 ERA in 17 relief appearances with the Marlins (2019-20) and Toronto Blue Jays (2020).

Tyler, 25, was just claimed off waivers Friday after the San Diego Padres designated him for assignment. He also was on the Angels last season and had a 2.92 ERA in five relief appearances.
