Report: Via Angels beat writer for the Orange County Register, Jeff Fletcher has reported that Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson has been shut down again due to Biceps Tendinitis.

C.J. Wilson was scheduled to have a start Monday night at AAA, but that will be put on hold as Wilson threw a bullpen today and felt something was off. According to Fletcher, Angels C.J. Wilson has some biceps tendinitis and has been shut down again. Will have more tests in probably the upcoming days.

It had been nearly 10 months since Angels left-hander C.J. Wilson had pitched in a competitive game, before he started his rehab assignment with a four plus inning for Inland Empire 66ers. His start went well actually, and all seemed to be good for the lefty. However with the bullpen today, it could be another setback for Wilson.

After the game with the 66ers Wilson talked about his improvement. “I feel like where I am mechanically, I’m really able to put the ball where I want to. At least in a quadrant of the strike zone.” In a matter of days, something new has come up.

Biceps tendinitis is an inflammation or irritation of the upper biceps tendon. Also called the long head of the biceps tendon, this strong, cord-like structure connects the biceps muscle to the bones in the shoulder.
