The Angels and Rangers have announced an intra-division swap that will send lefty Miguel Del Pozo to the Los Angeles organization. Cash considerations are going back to Texas in the deal.
Del Pozo was not on a MLB deal, which meant he could be swapped despite the fact that we’ve moved past the July 31st trade deadline. The 26-year-old reliever will help bolster the Halos’ upper-level pitching depth.
While he carries only a 5.12 ERA through 45 2/3 Triple-A innings this year, Del Pozo has racked up 65 strikeouts against 21 walks. The former Marlins farmhand is still awaiting his first crack at the big leagues.
