SALT LAKE CITY (May 4, 2007) - The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim announced Friday that the team has placed OF Garret Anderson on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to April 28) with a tear in his right hip flexor tendon and recalled outfielder Tommy Murphy from the Salt Lake Bees. The Angels have also transferred the contract of RHP Steven Shell from double-A Arkansas to the Bees.

Anderson, who has missed the club's last six games, had an MRI taken today at Orange Imaging with results showing the tear in the right hip flexor tendon. This marks the second DL stint of Anderson's career (also April 28 - June 9, 2004 with inflammatory arthritis in his upper back). In 23 games this season, Anderson is hitting .263 (25/95) with one home run and 10 RBI.

Murphy, 27, returns to the Angels for his second stint with the club this season. He opened the season on the 25-man roster and appeared in three games going hitless in two at-bats before being optioned to Salt Lake on April 24. In eight games with the Bees, Murphy was batting .345 (10/29) with eight RBI and four stolen bases.

Shell, 24, returns to the Bees for the second time this season. Shell was previously reassigned to Salt Lake on April 13. The Texas native appeared in seven innings over two games and had a 1.25 ERA. On April 22 he was returned to Arkansas.
