The Angels traded infielder Taylor Featherston to the Phillies on Wednesday for a player to be named or cash considerations. He was designated for assignment Friday after the club claimed left-hander Christian Friedrich.
Featherston struggled at the plate in 2015, his first year in the Majors, hitting .162 with two home runs and nine RBIs in 101 games. A versatile infielder for the Angels, Featherston split time between shortstop, second base and third.
