Angels Claim Ryan Wheeler From Rockies

The Angels have claimed first baseman/third baseman Ryan Wheeler off waivers from the Rockies, Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports on Twitter.

Wheeler, 26, has seen limited MLB action in each of the last three years. His cumulative line, over 225 plate appearances, stands at .223/.280/.335. Though he’s put up big numbers in the upper minors in years past, Wheeler is slashing just .243/.293/.343 despite playing half his games in hitter-friendly Colorado Springs.

    why?

      Because the Angels are short on their quota of useless former Rockies after getting rid of Ian Stewart.

    If you have ever watched Ryan play, you would see that the Rockies just got rid of one of their better fielders. I am a Sky Sox season ticket holder and have watched Ryan for two years and thought, ” Why is this guy in AAA?” He was obviously a better fielder that 3/4 of the total organization. His hitting needs a bit more work, but, balls do not get past him in the Colorado Rockies/ Sky Sox “OLE’!!” fashion. I hope he gets more play time there, because Glenallen Hill did not do him justice here. So, he is not a “useless former Rockies player”. I was unhappy to see him leave.
