Angels Shuffle Roster
Lots of roster changes occured today as the Los Angeles Angels sent Mike Napoli and Erick Aybar to the DL, re-calling Maicier Izturis and Garret Anderson. Shortly after, General Manager Bill Stoneman announced that Hector Carrasco was designated for assignment, re-calling Chris Resop from AAA-Salt Lake. Resop was the relief pitcher acquired from the Florida Marlins for Kevin Gregg.
Now the Angels have both Shea Hillenbrand and Hector Carrasco to trade within a very short period. They are also only running with one catcher in Jose Molina, so they will have to be very careful with their actions. Most likely, outfielder Nick Gournealt will be sent down for catcher Jeff Mathis.
