Middleton, 23, will undergo an MRI exam on Monday, MLB.com reported, after exiting Sunday's game against the Twins after only 12 pitches because of what manager Mike Scioscia described as right elbow discomfort.

"Fingers crossed," Scioscia told reporters, "hopefully it's just a mild setback."

The right-hander came off the DL on Thursday and pitched scoreless innings that day and Saturday. His fastball touched 97 mph Sunday before he was pulled with a 1-1 count on Eddie Rosario in the eighth inning.

He has six saves in 16 appearance with a 2.04 ERA and 16 strikeouts over 17 2/3 innings. In Middleton's previous stint on the DL, Cam Bedrosian and Jim Johnson recorded saves for the 24-16 Angels.
