Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Thursday 9 June 2016 at 10:01 am

The Los Angeles Angels have sent 23-year old lefty reliever Greg Mahle to AAA.  Mahle has pitched in 24 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 1-0 with a 5.40 ERA and a 1.80 WHIP.  He has given up 23 hits (4 homers) and 10 walks while whiffing 14 batters in his first 18 1/3 innings for the Angels this year.  I think Mahle will get back to Los Angeles at some point in 2016.

The Los Angeles Angels have designated 27-year old lefty starter/reliever Chris Jones for assignment.  Jones pitched in 10 games (all starts) in AAA-ball for the Angels this year and he was 3-5 with a 7.33 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP.  He gave up 71 hits and 16 walks while whiffing 34 batters in his first 50 1/3 innings this year…..so he was getting hit really hard by AAA batters.  Jones has now pitched in 266 games (72 starts) in his first 10 years in the minors and he is 47-45 with 7 saves, a 3.62 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP.  This isn’t much of a loss for the Angels moving forward.

(6/11/2016) – The Los Angeles Angels have outrighted Chris Jones to AAA.

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Trades by joelapinski on Wednesday 8 June 2016 at 7:31 am

The Los Angeles Angels have acquired 26-year old righty reliever Jose Valdez from the Detroit Tigers for cash considerations.  Valdez pitched in 16 games (0 starts) in AA+AAA-ball for the Tigers earlier this year and he was 2-1 with a 4.50 ERA and a 1.60 WHIP.  Valdez pitched in 7 games (0 starts) for the Tigers last year in his first taste of the majors and he was 0-1 with a 4.00 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP.  Valdez was worth taking a flier on, as I always like deals where you are only giving up cash considerations.
