Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Thursday 26 May 2016 at 5:40 pm

The Los Angeles Angels have signed 35-year old righty swinging catcher Erik Kratz to a minor league deal.  Kratz played in 15 games earlier this year for the Astros and he was 2 for 29 (.069 avg, .203 OPS) with 0 run scored, 0 homers and 0 RBIs.  Kratz has now played in 207 games in his first seven years in the show and he is 114 of 543 (.210 avg, .642 OPS) with 52 runs scored, 23 homers and 69 RBIs.  It never hurts to stash a veteran catcher in AAA-ball, so I like this move for the Angels.

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Wednesday 25 May 2016 at 12:22 pm

The Los Angeles Angels have called up 23-year old switch-hitting 3B Kaleb Cowart.  Cowart came into this season as the Angels’ #8 prospect according to Baseball America.  Cowart played in 39 games in AAA-ball for the Angels this year and he was 46 of 152 (.303 avg, .805 OPS) with 24 runs scored, 2 homers, 27 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.  He played in 34 games in his first taste of the majors in 2015 for the Angels and he was 8 for 46 (.174 avg, .538 OPS) with 8 runs scored, 1 homer, 4 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Cowart has played all four positions in AAA-ball this year, so they could use him all over the place.

The Los Angeles Angels call up Lucas Luetge

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Sunday 22 May 2016 at 1:32 pm

UPDATE:  (5/25/2016) – The Angels have designated Luetge for assignment.  He didn’t get into any games while he was with the big league team.

The Los Angeles Angels send A.J. Achter to AAA

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Sunday 22 May 2016 at 11:41 am

The Los Angeles Angels have sent 27-year old righty reliever A.J. Achter back to AAA.  Achter has pitched in 7 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 4.76 ERA and a 1.59 WHIP.  Achter has given up 15 hits (3 homers) and 3 walks while whiffing 4 batters in his first 11 1/3 innings for the Angels.  I’m pretty sure that Achter will get another shot with the Angels later this year, as he has been likely a yo-yo between AAA and L.A. so far this year.

UPDATE:  A.J. Achter has just been designated for assignment by the Angels.

UPDATE II:  (5/24/2016) – The Angels have outrighted A.J. Achter to AAA.

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Saturday 21 May 2016 at 1:40 pm
