During the third inning of Thursday's Angels-Athletics game, the right-hander discovered an injured bird in the visiting bullpen at O.co Coliseum. Fearing for its health and safety, The Dude took matters into his own hands by grabbing the fowl and proceeded to carry it to the clubhouse where he aided in its recovery.
According to his Twitter account, De La Rosa named his new avian friend Randy and he turned out to be just fine:
Randy, my pigeon friend is aright.

This is one Angel that earned his own wings.
