The Angels placed outfielder Matt Joyce on the seven-day concussion disabled list on Tuesday and optioned third baseman Kyle Kubitza to Triple-A Salt Lake, creating room on the roster for newly acquired outfielder Shane Victorino and left-handed-hitting first baseman/outfielder Efren Navarro.
The Angels had a new look for Saturday's game against the Rangers. Newly acquired Conor Gillaspie was starting at third base, and Kyle Kubitza -- a third-base prospect who hadn't played the outfield regularly until a little more than a week ago at Triple-A Salt Lake -- made his first big league start in left field.
