The LA Angels and five players mutually agreed to part ways, meaning they will be taken off the 40-man roster and are free to sign with another team.
The LA Angels made moves last off-season to acquire a few players to bolster the pitching staff and also to add depth offensively, but many of them did not work as planned. Almost every player with the exception of Tommy La Stella. Jonathan Lucroy, Matt Harvey, Cody Allen, and Peter Bourjos were all released by August 1st, Now the Angels allowed Luis Garcia and Justin Bour to become free agents as well and they are not likely to re-sign Trevor Cahill, who is free agent. In addition the Angels also granted free agency to some veteran Angels who did not have great seasons in Kaleb Cowart and Nick Tropeano. Here is an analysis on why the Angels cut each one loose.
