The Angels have claimed 27-year old righty swinging 3B Chris Nelson off waivers from the Rockies.  Nelson has played in 31 games for the Rockies and Yankees so far this year and he is 24 of 102 (.235 avg, .572 OPS) with 9 runs scored, 0 homers and 6 RBIs.  Nelson has played in 222 games in his first four years in the majors and he is 180 of 652 (.276 avg, .726 OPS) with 81 runs scored, 13 homers, 75 RBIs and 6 stolen bases.  Nelson might eat into Alberto Callaspo’s P.T. a little bit at 3B.  This was a good pickup for the Angels.

The Los Angeles Angels DFA Scott Cousins

The Angels have designated 28-year old lefty swinging outfielder Scott Cousins for assignment.  Cousins played in 7 games for the Angels this year and he was 0 for 4 (.000 avg, .200 OPS) with 1 run scored.  He has now played in 135 games in his first four years in the majors and he is 32 for 179 (.179 avg, .515 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 2 homers, 9 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.  If Cousins gets claimed on waivers or leaves as a free agent, it won’t be much of a loss for the Angels.

UPDATE:  (5/22/2013) – Scott Cousins cleared waivers and he has been outrighted to AAA-ball by the Angels.
