The Angels designated Michael Ryan for assignment after last night's game, according to Bill Shaikin of the LA Times. Ryan said he had "a blast" with the Angels, but the club had to make room for Jeff Mathis, who is coming off of the disabled list.
If Ryan clears waivers, the Angels would assign him to Triple A, but the utilityman hasn't decided whether he would accept the assignment. In 41 plate appearances, the 32-year-old hit .205/.220/.308. It was Ryan's first stint in the majors since 2005, when he played for the Twins.
