Angels DFA Fernando Rodriguez

Right-hander Fernando Rodriguez has been designed for assignment by the Angels, reports Mark Saxon of ESPNLosAngeles.com.  The Halos needed to clear a spot for Michael Ryan on the 40-man roster, as Ryan was called up to replace Triple A-bound reliever Matt Palmer.

Rodriguez was an 18th-round pick of the Angels in the 2003 amateur draft, and the El Paso native has just one major league appearance to his credit: two-thirds of an inning pitched on May 2, 2009, where he allowed three runs, two of them earned.  Rodriguez was a starter for most of his minor league career, but has worked exclusively out of the bullpen since 2009.  He compiled a 4.68 ERA in 200 career games in the minors, 112 of them starts, and posted a 1.92 K:BB ratio.

I was and raised in NY into a very pro-yankees house. I moved to LA and couldn’t watch them, but missed baseball, became a dodger fan as well…. Not weird, people move all the time.

Wow, the ads here are getting out of control. First a sticky ad for acai berry (very unprofessional) and now talking ads popping up (St. Lucia). This is starting to get annoying.
