Prior to tonight’s game against the Oakland Athletics, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim announced that infielder Brendan Harris has been designated for assignment in favor of Tommy Field, who was called up earlier in the day.
In 117 PA’s for the Angels in 2013, Harris posted a line of .206/.252/.355 but had only made it into three games thus far in July. It seems as if DFA’ing him might allow Harris the opportunity to wind up on a new team that might offer him more playing time, as he hasn’t played in a lot of games for Mike Scioscia lately.
Field, 26, had been called up earlier in the season but only appeared in three games (no offical at-bats).
The Angels now have ten days to either trade Harris, outright him to the minors or grant him a release.Tweet

MonkeyWithAHalo.com presents, a dramatic re-telling of the Joe Blanton vs. Mike Butcher incident:
It was a warm, sunny day in Seattle (which is unusual for a city with an average of 150 rainy days a year). Joe Blanton was on the mound for the Angels at the Mariners’ Safeco Field, and he was in quite a pickle. A two-run homer in the second had thrown him more than a bit off...
After coming out of the All-Star break red hot and looking nearly unstoppable the Angels have continued their bi-polar act of looking amazing one day and looking like a little league team of rejects the next.
