The Los Angeles Angels have placed starting pitcher Matt Shoemaker on the bereavement list after the death of his grandfather, ESPN Los Angeles reports. The move will have Shoemaker away from the team from  three to seven games.

With Shoemaker out, the Angels have called up Nick Tropeano to make his 2015 debut after pitching four games with the Astros last season. Shoemaker is tentatively scheduled to make his next start Wednesday against the Athletics.
