Athletics Return Cassevah To Angels

The Athletics returned Rule 5 pick Bobby Cassevah to the Angels, reports Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.  The Halos will pay the standard $25K fee in the transaction.

Cassevah, 24, was one of 17 players taken in the Major League phase of December's Rule 5 draft.  He posted a 3.68 ERA, 5.5 K/9, and 4.5 BB/9 in 73.3 relief innings for the Angels' Double A club, allowing just two home runs.  Baseball America ranked Cassevah 26th among A's prospects, praising his heavy 92-94 mph sinker but suggesting he has middle reliever upside given the control problems.

Given the $21MM spent on one-year deals, the A's fancy themselves contenders in the AL West.  As such, it would've been difficult to keep Cassevah in the Majors all year.
