ANAHEIM, CA -- The Angels Tuesday placed left-handed pitcher Jarrod Washburn on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to July 21) due to inflammation of a ligament in the fifth rib on the left side of his chest. To replace Washburn on the Angels' 25-man roster, the club selected the contract of outfielder Curtis Pride from triple-A Salt Lake. These announcements were made by club Vice President/General Manager Bill Stoneman.

Washburn, 29, is 10-5 with one complete game, one shutout and a 4.83 ERA (113.1 IP - 61 ER) in 19 starts this season. He leads the club in wins (tied for sixth in AL) and joins John Lackey as the only Angel to toss a complete game or shutout this season. Washburn tossed his fifth complete game and first career shutout, July 7 at Chicago, defeating the White Sox 12-0 (9 IP, 4 H, 1 BB, 6 SO, 1 WP). The shutout came in his 146th career start, snapping the most games started (145) by an Angel without a shutout to start a career. He won six straight decisions, April 17-May 15, the longest by an Angels' starter and tied for fourth longest in the AL this season.

Originally selected by the Angels' in the second round of the 1995 free agent draft, Washburn owns a 66-46 career record with five complete games, one shutout and a 4.07 ERA (940.1 IP - 425 ER). His .589 career winning percentage is the best in club history (50-or-more decisions). This marks the fifth time Washburn has been placed on the disabled list in his career (once in 2001 and three times in 2000).

Pride, 35, began the 2004 season with the Nashua Pride, an independent club in the Atlantic League. He batted .446 (29/65) with 12 runs scored, nine doubles, a home run and 12 RBI in 17 games. He was signed by the Angels to a minor league contract, May 28. In 19 games at Salt Lake, Pride batted .431 (28/65) with 13 runs scored, eight doubles, one triple, two home runs and 10 RBI.

A native of Washington, DC, Pride was originally selected by the New York Mets in the 10th round of the 1986 free agent draft. He owns a career .253 (182/718) average with 119 runs scored, 33 doubles, 12 triples, 19 home runs and 77 RBI in 353 games. Pride has played in the major leagues with Montreal (1993, 1995, 2001), Detroit (1996, 1997), Boston (1997, 2000), Atlanta (1998) and the New York Yankees (2003). He will wear No. 19 and be in uniform tonight when the Angels host the Texas Rangers at Angel Stadium.
