Salas allowed one run on two hits while striking out two in a loss to the A's on Monday.

Salas has struggled early in 2015, allowing four runs in six appearances, but he has walked just one batter while striking out six over that span. Salas has been relegated to a mop-up role of late, as he has yet to enter a game in 2015 where the Angels have been ahead, with five of six outings coming when the team was trailing by three or more runs.
