The Los Angeles Angels have designated 27-year old switch-hitting outfielder Todd Cunningham for assignment. Cunningham played in 5 games for the Angels this year and he was 1 for 12 (.083 avg, .321 OPS) with 3 runs scored. He has now played in 52 games in his first three years in the show and he is 22 of 106 (.208 avg, .518 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 0 homers, 4 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. The Angels probably want to keep Cunningham and stash him in AAA-ball, but he will have to clear waivers before they can send him back to the minors. They needed a roster spot for Tim Lincecum.
