We’ll keep track of today’s outright assignments here..
- The Angels outrighted first baseman Marc Krauss to Triple-A Salt Lake after he cleared waivers, as Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times tweets. Krauss, 27, appeared in eleven games for the Halos this season, batting .143/.211/.286 with a homer and two doubles. A former second-round pick, Krauss has been up and down with the Astros and Angels over the past two seasons, totaling a .603 OPS. He has a strong track record at Triple-A, however,where he’s batted .267/.376/.434 in parts of four seasons.
- Travis Ishikawa has cleared waivers and is back with the Giants’ Triple-A affiliate, Alex Pavlovic of CSNBayArea.com tweets. Ishikawa, 31, was designated for assignment on May 25th. The first baseman has not appeared in the big leagues this season. He opened the year on the DL with a back injury and recently finished a rehab assignment at Triple-A Sacramento. The Giants avoided arbitration with Ishikawa this offseason by signing him to a $1.1MM deal, but there has yet to be a place for him on the 25-man roster. For his career, Ishikawa has a .259/.322/.397 line in parts of seven seasons.
