The Angels have acquired 30-year old righty reliever Dane De La Rosa from the Rays for 25-year old righty reliever Steve Geltz.  De La Rosa pitched in 5 games (0 starts) for the Rays last year and he was 0-0 with a 12.60 ERA and a 1.80 WHIP.  He also pitched in 54 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the Rays last year and he was 0-4 with 20 saves, a 2.79 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP.  De La Rosa has now pitched in 12 games (0 starts) in his first two years in the show and he is 0-0 with a 10.95 ERA and a 1.78 WHIP.  Geltz came into this season as the Angels’ #26 overall prospect according to Baseball America.  He pitched in 2 games (0 starts) for the Angels in his first taste of the majors in 2012 and he was 0-0 with a 4.50 ERA and a 2.50 WHIP.  Geltz also pitched in 46 games (0 starts) in AA+AAA-ball for the Angels last year and he was 3-1 with 11 saves, a 3.05 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP.  The Angels must feel that De La Rosa is ready to help them right now, while Geltz might not be quite ready for the show.
