Brendan Donnelly joins the Stingers tonight

June 12, 2004 - Pacific Coast League (PCL) - Salt Lake Bees News Release

Salt lake city—The Angels announced Saturday that RHP Brendan Donnelly will join the Stingers tonight for a major league rehab assignment. Donnelly faced only one batter for Salt Lake back on May 9 at Tacoma in a previous rehab assignment. He walked one batter before pulling himself out of the game with elbow soreness.

Donnelly pitched for the Stingers in 2001 and 2002 before becoming an integral part of the Angels' bullpen. He pitched 7.2 scoreless innings in five games of the 2002 World Series to help the Angels capture their first World Championship. He was selected as an American League All-Star in 2003 and pitched a scoreless inning to pick up the win in the Mid-Summer Classic. Donnelly became the first Angel and first former Stinger to pick up a victory in the major league All-Star game. He led the 2003 Angels in ERA (1.58, 74 IP - 13 ER) and games pitched (63). Donnelly has been out of major league action because of complications stemming from a broken nose suffered in Spring Training on March 9. He began his first rehab assignment at single-A Rancho Cucamonga on May 3.
