ANAHEIM -- The Angels claimed Minor League reliever Michael Brady from the Marlins on Wednesday.
Brady, a Southern California native who attended the University of California, Berkeley, is a 27-year-old right-hander who posted a 1.53 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and a 6.11 strikeout-to-walk ratio in Double-A last season.
Brady was placed on the 40-man roster, which is now full, but will be optioned to the Minor Leagues.
