Briceno was traded to the Angels on Thursday, Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Briceno was included in the package with Andrelton Simmons that brought Erick Aybar and the Angels' top two pitching prospects to Atlanta. The 23-year-old began his professional career as a 19-year-old, but his hitting has tapered off since his hot start, as he only slashed .183/.215/.267 with High-A Carolina. Brice hasn't played a game above Singe-A, but he might get more looks in the Angels' system if he can pick it up at the plate.
