The Angels have designated reliever Sam Selman for assignment, tweets Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register. The move clears space on the 40-man roster for Raisel Iglesias, whose four-year agreement has been made official.
Selman came over from the Giants at this past summer’s trade deadline, part of a three-player package for Tony Watson. The southpaw worked 17 innings of 6.35 ERA ball down the stretch. His 14.3% strikeout percentage and 8.5% swinging strike rate in that time were both far worse than average.
Over parts of three seasons, the 31-year-old has tallied 54 2/3 frames across 59 outings. He owns a 4.77 ERA with slightly worse than average strikeout and walk rates (22% and 11.4%, respectively). Selman, who owns a much better 3.23 ERA over parts of five Triple-A seasons, has one minor league option year remaining.
