The Los Angeles Angels placed Jose Quintana on the injured list Monday with left shoulder inflammation and recalled fellow left-hander Jose Quijada from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Quintana, 32, was 0-3 with a 7.22 ERA in his first nine starts as a member of the Angels. He worked three innings Sunday against the Oakland Athletics, allowing two runs while recording five strikeouts before leaving the game with shoulder soreness.

A veteran of 10 major league seasons, Quintana is 83-80 in 263 career appearances (256 starts) with a 3.80 ERA for the Chicago White Sox (2012-17), Chicago Cubs (2017-2020) and Angels. He was an All-Star in 2016.
