The Los Angeles Angels sign Ryan Braun

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General by chinmusic on Wednesday 22 December 2010 at 6:40 pm

The Angels have signed 30-year old righty reliever Ryan Braun to a minor league deal. Braun pitched in 52 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the White Sox last season and he was 1-3 with 18 saves, a 2.20 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP. Braun only gave up 45 hits in 57 1/3 innings in the minors last season and he whiffed 61 batters showing that he has good stuff. Braun last pitched in the majors way back in 2007 with the Kansas City Royals. Braun has pitched in 35 games (0 starts) in his two years in the majors and he is 2-1 with a 6.66 ERA and a 1.68 WHIP. Braun will get a chance to earn a spot in the Angels’ bullpen next spring.

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General by chinmusic on Tuesday 14 December 2010 at 4:57 pm

The Los Angeles Angels have designated 31-year old righty swinging catcher Ryan Budde for assignment. Budde played in 6 games for the Angels last season and he was 4 of 10 (.400 avg, 1.255 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 1 homer and 3 RBIs. Budde also played in 53 games in AAA-ball last season and he was 42 of 172 (.244 avg, .627 OPS) with 24 runs scored, 1 homer, 13 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Budde played in 29 games in parts of four years with the Angels and he was 7 of 33 (.212 avg, .599 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 1 homer and 4 RBIs. Budde lost his roster spot because the Angels needed it for Scott Downs.

The Los Angeles Angels sign Scott Downs

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General by admin on Saturday 11 December 2010 at 12:11 am

The Angels have signed 34-year old lefty reliever Scott Downs to a 3-year, $15 million dollar deal.  Downs pitched in 67 games (0 starts) for the Blue Jays last season and he was 5-5 with a 2.64 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP.  He only gave up 47 hits in 61 1/3 innings for the Jays last season as he was missing a lot of bats.  Downs has now pitched in 379 games (50 starts) in his first nine years in the majors and he is 27-28 with 16 saves, a 3.79 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP.  Downs has been excellent since turning into a full-time reliever four years ago.  In his last four years, Downs has pitched in 262 games (0 starts) in which he is 10-13 with 15 saves, a 2.36 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP.  Downs will team with Fernando Rodney to give the Angels a nasty back end of the bullpen.  I really like this signing for the Angels.

The Los Angeles Angels sign Hisanori Takahashi

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General by chinmusic on Friday 3 December 2010 at 12:09 am

The Angels have signed 35-year old lefty reliever/starter Hisanori Takahashi to a 2-year deal. Takahashi pitched in 53 games (12 starts) in his rookie year for the Mets and he was 10-6 with 8 saves, a 3.61 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP. He only gave up 116 hits in 122 innings last season while whiffing 114 batters showing that his stuff is pretty good. Takahashi can pitch late in games if needed as Fernando Rodney was shaky at times last season. He’s also capable of starting if the Angels need him to do that too. I really like this signing for the Angels.
