The Angels have designated right-hander A.J. Achter for assignment, reports Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com (Twitter link). Achter is the second reliever the Halos have designated this weekend, joining Al Alburquerque.
Achter threw 11 1/3 frames for the Angels prior to Sunday and pitched to a 4.76 ERA, posting low strikeout and walk rates (3.18 and 2.38 per nine innings, respectively) along the way. Achter, 27, previously accrued big league time as a member of the Twins, with whom he picked up a combined 24 1/3 innings the previous two seasons. In total, Achter owns a 5.05 ERA, 5.8 K/9 and 3.03 BB/9 in the majors.
