The Angels have released 30-year old righty swinging 1B/3B Jorge Cantu, as he exercised his opt out clause in his contract. Cantu played in 21 games in AAA-ball for the Angels this year and he was 25 of 86 (.291 avg, .788 OPS) with 12 runs scored, 4 homers and 22 RBIs. Cantu has played in 847 games in 8 years in the majors and he is 847 for 3,128 (.271 avg, .755 OPS) with 367 runs scored, 104 homers, 476 RBIs and 11 stolen bases. The Angels aren’t going to miss Cantu this year. I do think another team will sign him to a minor league deal soon as he was hitting the ball well in AAA.
