TEMPE, AZ -- The Angels Monday placed outfielder Tim Salmon, infielder Adam Kennedy and right-handed pitcher Matt Hensley on the 15-day disabled list. All three assignments are retroactive to March 25. This announcement was made by club Vice President/General Manager Bill Stoneman.

Salmon, 36, was placed on the disabled list due to surgeries on his left knee (Sept. 18) and right rotator cuff (Nov. 30). He is not expected to return to baseball activity for approximately five more months. Salmon appeared in 60 games with the Angels in 2004, batting .253 (47/186) with two home runs and 23 RBI.

A native of Long Beach, CA, Salmon owns a lifetime .283 (1618/5723) average with 290 home runs and 989 RBI in 1,596 games. He was originally selected by the Angels in the third round of the 1989 free agent draft.

Kennedy, 29, was placed in the disabled list due to reconstructive surgery on his right ACL (Oct. 15). He suffered the knee injury on Sept. 20, 2004 vs. Seattle. An MRI taken the following day showed a complete tear of the MCL and partial tear of the ACL. Kennedy completed the 2004 season with a .278 (130/468) average, 10 home runs and 48 RBI in 144 games.

A native of Riverside, CA, Kennedy owns a lifetime .278 (713/2569) average with 46 home runs and 277 RBI in 757 games. He was acquired by the Angels along with pitcher Kent Bottenfield from St. Louis in exchange for outfielder Jim Edmonds, March 23, 2000.

Hensley, 26, was placed on the disabled list due to weakness in his right shoulder. He appeared in three spring training games, posting a 1-0 record and 17.18 ERA (3.2 IP - 7 ER). Hensley split the 2004 season between triple-A Salt Lake and the Angels. He posted a 1-3 record with five saves and a 2.93 ERA (43 IP - 14 ER) in 30 games with the Stingers and a 0-2 record and 4.88 ERA (27.2 IP - 15 ER) in 16 games with the Angels. Hensley made his major league debut, May 4 vs. Detroit (1 IP, 1 H, 1 BB).

A native of San Diego, CA, Hensley was selected by the Angels in the 10th round of the 2000 free agent draft.
