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.
