Alburquerque was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports. The 30-year-old made two appearances during his four-day stint with the big club, allowing one earned run on two hits and two walks while striking out one batter in two innings. Alburquerque has fared reasonably well in 22 appearances with Salt Lake, but the walks continue to haunt him.

Albuquerque was assigned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports. After being designated for assignment Saturday, the veteran reliever officially cleared waivers Tuesday and was subsequently assigned to the Angels' Triple-A affiliate.

Albuquerque was designated for assignment Saturday. The veteran reliever has spent the entire season at Triple-A Salt Lake, where he has notched a 2.40 ERA across 15 appearances. However, the Angels opted to remove him from the 40-man roster and give his spot to Deolis Guerra. Albuquerque will now be available on waivers and could be picked up by an organization looking to add bullpen depth.
