Andrew Bailey has signed a minor-league deal with the Angels. You probably know about the injured mess he's been since the A's traded him away in the Josh Reddick deal, but he actually looked like he might be making it back this year, hitting the Phillies' Opening Day roster after coming to camp as a non-roster invite, but while he struck out over a man per inning, he also gave up a bunch of dingers, pushing him to 17 allowed in 85 MLB innings since 2012, and the Phillies designated him for assignment on August 2 and released him on August 6. He was designated so the Phillies could call up Luis Garcia, who was literally a barber, so who knows what the future holds for the former Rookie of the Year.
