Rays signed RHP Michael Kohn to a one-year contract.

Kohn elected free agency last month after being removed from the Angels' 40-man roster. The 28-year-old holds a 3.67 ERA with 107 strikeouts across 110 1/3 frames at the major league level, though he's also walked 73. He should be able to crack the Rays' Opening Day roster next season as a middle reliever.

Michael Kohn has elected to become a free agent.

Kohn was designated for assignment by the Angels last week but passed through waivers and has now chosen to test the open market. The 28-year-old right-hander posted a decent 3.04 ERA in 23 2/3 innings this season for Anaheim and should be able to find a spot in a major league bullpen heading into 2015.

Angels designated RHP Michael Kohn for assignment.

Kohn posted a 3.04 ERA in 23 2/3 innings this season for the Angels, but that came alongside a troubling 26/20 K/BB ratio. The righty is now off the 40-man roster.

With the Angels bullpen taxed during Friday's game, Kohn will provide a fresh arm for a couple of days. He has pitched well in his time with the Angles this year, registering a 3.04 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 26/20 K/BB ratio over 23 2/3 innings.

Jun 3 - 5:01 PM

Angels recalled RHP Michael Kohn from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Kohn, who is in his first year back after undergoing Tommy John surgery, has posted a 7/0 K/BB ratio over 4 1/3 scoreless innings at Triple-A this season. He'll serve as an extra arm in the bullpen for a few days and could work himself into a permanent role if he pitches well.

Angels optioned RHPs Michael Kohn, Ryan Brasier and Barry Enright to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Kohn was hoping to land a bullpen spot in his first year back from Tommy John surgery, but he struggled this spring, posting an 8.44 ERA while walking six over 5 1/3 innings. He should be an option for the pen at some point in 2013.

Michael Kohn (elbow) said he's "game-ready" after throwing 20-25 bullpen sessions over the offseason.

Kohn missed all of 2012 following Tommy John surgery and wasn't expected to be ready for the start of 2013, but it sounds like he's ahead of schedule. He'll compete for a middle relief role.

Michael Kohn will have Tommy John surgery Thursday.

It's a tough blow for the 25-year-old right-hander, who had a shot at a bullpen spot this spring before experiencing elbow and forearm problems in late March. He will be sidelined for the entire 2012 campaign.
Wed, Apr 11, 2012 06:09:00 PM

Michael Kohn will have his forearm examined by Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Alabama on Wednesday.

Never a good sign. Kohn hasn't picked up a ball in a couple of weeks and will likely be sidelined for a while longer even if Andrews' exam goes relatively well.
