Angels To Shop Rich Thompson

The Angels will look to trade right-hander Rich Thompson over the next few days before placing him on waivers, according to MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez (via Twitter).  However, Gonzalez adds that it's hard to envision a taker for him given the drop in his velocity.

Thompson, 27, was designated for assignment by the Halos early Saturday morning.  The right-hander posted a 3.00 ERA with 9.3 K/9 and 3.3 BB/9 in 54 innings for the Angels in 2011 and may be claimed if he is ultimately waived.
