Angels reliever Keynan Middleton removed with right elbow discomfort

Los Angeles Angels reliever Keynan Middleton was removed from Sunday's game against the Twins in the top of the eighth inning with a 1-1 count on Minnesota's Eddie Rosario.

The Angels said after their 2-1 victory over the Twins that Middleton was removed because of right elbow discomfort. He will have an MRI on Monday, the team said.

Middleton just came off the disabled list Thursday. He was put on the DL on May 2 because of elbow inflammation.

Middleton threw only 12 pitches and recorded two outs Sunday before he was removed. He was relieved by reliever Jim Johnson.

Middleton leads the Angels with six saves.
