Bulger on Angels roster

Reliever Jason Bulger, who went 6-1 with a 3.56 ERA in 64 games this season, has been added to the Angels' roster heading into the American League Division Series. There were some doubts about Bulger's availability after he was removed from Saturday's game with tightness in his pitching shoulder, which led to the pitcher getting a cortisone shot Sunday. Bulger threw a bullpen session Wednesday after executing 10 minutes of long toss the day before. For more updates heading into the first game of the ALDS, see the Full Count blog.
