The Angels have released 29-year old righty reliever Francisco Rodriguez. Rodriguez pitched in 40 games (1 start) in AAA-ball for the Angels this year and he was 2-3 with a 6.35 ERA and a 1.73 WHIP. He gave up 57 hits and he walked 31 batters in only 51 innings pitched this year while whiffing 28. So he didn’t have much of a clue where the ball was going after he threw it. Rodriguez pitched in 53 games (0 starts) in two years with the Angels and he was 1-3 with a 4.43 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP. Rodriguez might get a shot with another team, but the Angels won’t miss him too much going forward.
