Cassevah outrighted off Angels' 40-man roster


GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Angels outrighted reliever Bobby Cassevah off their 40-man roster on Thursday.

Cassevah, who is out of options, cleared waivers and now has 72 hours to decide whether or not to accept an assignment to the Minor Leagues. If he doesn't, he'll become a free agent.

Cassevah posted a 2.87 ERA in a combined 46 appearances with the Angels from 2010-11. Late last spring, the 27-year-old right-hander suffered a slight tear in his rotator cuff, then struggled in Triple-A, posting a 6.22 ERA in 44 games, and was sent to the Arizona Fall League to continue working on his pitching.

The move creates an open spot on the Angels' 40-man roster, which is now at 39.
