The Dodgers have claimed outfielder Matt Angle off of waivers, Steve Melewski of MASNsports.com tweets. The Orioles designated Angle for assignment to create roster space for Luis Ayala approximately two weeks ago.
Angle debuted with the 2011 Orioles, playing all three outfield positions, and posting a .559 OPS in 95 plate appearances. The 26-year-old spent most of the season at Triple-A, where he posted a .271/.347/.344 line in 489 plate appearances. He hit his first big league home run off of Justin Verlander in Detroit as the right-hander attempted to win his 25th game of the season.
I wish we would have been able to hold on to him. I was really disappointed when then designated him for assignment. I felt there were others that we could have chosen before him.
