MWAH 2014 Angels Prospects Countdown #29: Cory Rasmus

Acquired from the Braves for Scott Downs, Cory Rasmus may not be able to crack the Angels' Opening Day bullpen, but he has cracked our top prospect list.

Meet the new Angels prospects! Cory Rasmus and Grant Green

Before the trade deadline had come and gone, the Angels did everyone a favor and started playing just about as bad as any team can possibly play.  The starting pitching hasn’t been horrible since Blanton’s long overdue departure, but the bullpen (blowpen) took an enormous step in the wrong direction and the offense everywhere before and after Mike Trout has disappeared.  The...

Braves Acquire Lefty Reliever Scott Downs

The Atlanta Braves have acquired lefty reliever Scott Downs from the Los Angeles Angels for minor league pitcher Cory Rasmus.  The Braves have been looking to acquire a veteran lefty reliever since Eric O’Flaherty was hurt in May. Downs has performed at a high level this season, registering a 1.84 ERA in 43 appearances.  Included in that record, is an incredible run where he...

Angels begin selling, send Downs to Atlanta for Cory Rasmus

And so it begins. The Angels were expected to become sellers of some sort at the trade deadline and have followed through on those expectations by trading Scott Downs to Atlanta for relief prospect Cory Rasmus. It is unclear at this time if the Angels will pick up any of the money remaining on Downs' contract, not that it matters much in the grand scheme of things. Downs...

Braves activate Walden off DL, send down Rasmus

The Braves announced the move Wednesday before the start of a two-game home series against the Toronto Blue Jays. Walden was acquired from the Los Angeles Angels over the winter.

Rasmus brothers join a surprisingly large club

Monday night, Toronto Blue Jays center fielder Colby Rasmus doubled in the bottom of the seventh inning. Usually, not much would be made of such a thing. The game was well in hand for the Blue Jays, and the series itself is one of those weird by-products of the Astros moving to the AL, a brief two game interleague set. The pitcher who surrendered the double, however, made the hit...

Rasmus Vs. Rasmus: Rasmus Wins

((HT: Sportsnet/MLB)) Colby and Cory Rasmus are on two separate sides of the whole "playing in Major League Baseball" thing... Colby is the starting center fielder for the Toronto Blue Jays Cory is a reliever in his rookie year for the Atlanta Braves Tim Hudson's outing on the road in SkyDome was less than sterling, so it meant the bullpen got called in a...

The Braves Recall RHP Cory Rasmus From Triple-A

In a move that corresponds to Eric O’Flaherty getting put onto the 15-Day DL, they have recalled RHP Cory Rasmus from Triple-A Gwinnett. Rasmus will be relied upon to help the battered Braves bullpen. He’s recorded a solid 0.93 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and a 21/9 K/BB ratio this season at the Triple-A level. If he starts off well, he could be a solid middle relief pitcher option for National...
