The Angels have designated 28-year old lefty swinging outfielder Scott Cousins for assignment. Cousins played in 7 games in AAA-ball for the Angels this year and he was 6 for 26 (.231 avg, .541 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 0 homers, 3 RBIs and 1 stolen base. He has played in 128 games in his first three years in the majors and he is 32 for 175 (.183 avg, .523 OPS) with 14 runs scored, 2 homers, 9 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. This isn’t much of a loss for the Angels if they lose Cousins.
UPDATE: (4/17/2013) – Scott Cousins has cleared waivers and he has been outrighted to AAA.
