Tony Campana has elected free agency.

Campana was outrighted off the Angels' 40-man roster earlier this week. The speedy outfielder batted just .187/.197/.227 in 44 games in the majors this season for the Angels and Diamondbacks.

The Angels are expected to pick up Huston Street's $7 million club option for 2015.

It's an easy choice. Street notched 41 saves to go along with a 1.37 ERA and 57/14 K/BB ratio over 59 1/3 innings this season between the Padres and Angels. Health is always the big question with him, but he's a bargain at $7 million.

Angels sent OF Tony Campana outright to Triple-A Salt Lake.

The move frees up a spot on the Halos' 40-man roster. Campana hit just .187/.197/.227 in 44 games in the majors this season for the Angels and Diamondbacks.
Oct 27 - 7:08 PM

Angels sent RHP Ryan Brasier outright to Triple-A Salt Lake.

He's now off the 40-man roster. Brasier missed the 2014 campaign due to Tommy John surgery but should eventually compete for a spot in the Angels' bullpen next year.
Oct 27 - 7:07 PM

Mike Trout has been awarded the Hank Aaron award, acknowledging the American League's best hitter for 2014.

Trout led the American League with 115 runs scored and 111 RBI. He slashed .287/.377/.561, finishing in a tie for third in home runs with Jose Abreu at 36. Many worried about Trout's increased strikeout rate but the results remain elite. Fantasy players will be hard-pressed to do better than Trout with the #1 overall pick in fantasy drafts in 2015.
Oct 25 - 7:19 PM

Angels claimed C Jackson Williams off waivers from the Rockies.

Williams underwent surgery in late September to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee, but he should be ready for the start of spring training in 2015. The 28-year-old will function as organizational catching depth for the Angels. He was the 43rd overall pick in the 2007 MLB Amateur Draft but owns a weak .235/.307/.361 career batting line at the Triple-A level.
Oct 22 - 4:18 PM

Ian Stewart has elected free agency.

The veteran slugger refused his outright assignment to Triple-A Salt Lake and will instead search for a new opportunity elsewhere. In 24 games with the Angels in 2014, the 29-year-old hit just .176/.222/.382 with a pair of homers and seven RBI while posting a horrifying 31/3 K/BB ratio in his 68 at-bats.
Oct 11 - 8:53 AM

John Buck has elected free agency.

He was designated for assignment earlier this week and will now get an early start at free agency. Buck, who hit only .225/.289/.281 across 97 plate appearances in the majors this season, will likely have to settle for a minor league deal.
Oct 9 - 7:46 PM

Brennan Boesch has elected free agency.

Boesch was designated for assignment earlier this week and has refused an outright assignment. He hit just .187 in 79 plate appearances with the Angels this season and will now seek a minor league deal this winter.
Oct 9 - 7:44 PM

Angels designated C John Buck for assignment.

Buck is now officially off the Angels' 40-man roster. The veteran catcher has some power, but he posted a weak .225/.289/.281 slash line across 97 plate appearances this season between Seattle and Anaheim.
Oct 7 - 5:41 PM

Angels designated OF Brennan Boesch for assignment.

Boesch was left off the Angels' ALDS roster and now he is on waivers. The 29-year-old corner outfielder struggled mightily this season in Anaheim, batting just .187 with a .496 across 79 plate appearances.
Oct 7 - 5:38 PM

Angels claimed OF Alfredo Marte off waivers from the Diamondbacks.

Marte hit just .170/.221/.292 across 114 plate appearances this season for Arizona. The 25-year-old outfielder probably won't get much of a shot with the Angels.
Oct 7 - 5:34 PM

Angels claimed OF Roger Kieschnick off waivers from the Diamondbacks.

Kieschnick batted just .195 with a .488 OPS in 41 plate appearances this season with Arizona. The 27-year-old outfielder will be minor league depth for the Halos.
Oct 7 - 5:30 PM

Erick Aybar did his part offensively in Sunday's loss to the Royals in Game 3 of the ALDS, going 4-for-4 with a double and a stolen base.

Unfortunately for the Angels, Aybar represented half of the team's hit total on the evening. He finished the series 5-for-12 (.455) though he failed to tally a run scored or an RBI.
Oct 5 - 11:27 PM

Mike Trout went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a losing effort against the Royals in Game 3 of the ALDS on Sunday in Kansas City.

Trout got the Angels offense started with a bang in this one, lining a James Shields offering over the wall in left to give them a 1-0 lead, it would prove to be very short lived though. The favorite to take home American League MVP honors, Trout had just one hit in 11 at-bats in the series (.089).
