As Spring Training is in full effect and teams are now making moves and sending players down to their minor league camps the Los Angeles Angels and starting pitcher Bobby Cassevah have both agreed to part ways with each other.
Cassevah was re-acquired by the Los Angeles Angels back in 2010 from the Oakland Athletics who drafted Cassevah in the 2009 MLB Rule 5 Draft. Upon his return back into the Los Angeles Angels organization Cassevah was sent straight to the Angels Triple-A affiliate the Salt Lake City Bees to wait for his opportunity to be back up on the active roster.
Cassevah found his way back up to the roster for a short time in 2011 filling the role for then Angels relief pitcher Fernando Rodney. In 2011 Cassevah played in 30 games for the Angels pitching a impressive ERA of 2.72. But after the 2011 season it will be the last time Cassevah saw Major League action with the team again. Cassevah this Spring was invited to the teams Spring camp to find a way on the roster but early this week the Angels designated him for an assignment and today he confirms that he will be returning to the Angels.
Cassevah who is nearing the prime of his career at the age of 27 still has a lot of years left in professional baseball and will land a Minor League deal in the coming weeks.
