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.
