The Los Angeles Angels have designated 24-year old lefty swinging 1B/OF Ji-Man Choi for assignment. Choi played in 14 games for the Angels this year and he was only 1 for 18 (.056 avg, .347 OPS) with 6 walks and 6 whiffs. He was a Rule 5 Draft Pick over the winter and they took him from the Baltimore Orioles. If he clears waivers, the Angels will have to offer Choi back to the Orioles for half price. The Angels were wasting a roster spot trying to carry Choi, so this was the right move to make.
UPDATE: (5/16/2016) – Ji-Man Choi has cleared waivers and he has been outrighted to AAA by the Angels.
