Satterwhite was released by the Angels on Monday. The right-hander signed a minor league deal with the organization back in February, but he requested his release in order to sign overseas with the Hanshin Tigers of the Nippon Professional Baseball League (Japan). Satterwhite, 29, amassed a 1.80 ERA across 18 Triple-A appearances on the season, and he'll likely look to return stateside at some point in the future.
Satterwhite signed a minor league deal with the Angels on Friday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. Satterwhite produced a 4.38 ERA and 1.43 WHIP while boasting an impressive 8.88 K/9 over 72 innings of work for Triple-A Las Vegas in 2015. The 29-year-old will begin 2016 in the minor leagues.
The Mets announced Tuesday they reassigned pitchers Matt Bowman, Tyler Pill, Hansel Robles, Cody Satterwhite and Gabriel Ynoa. They join outfielder Brandon Nimmo, infielder Gavin Cecchini and catcher Xorge Carrillo, who were reassigned last week.
