The Angels have signed pitcher Jeremy McBryde to a major-league contract and designated outfielder Roger Kieschnick for assignment, the team announced Friday. McBryde made 51 appearances for Triple-A Sacramento in 2014, going 2-3 with a 2.22 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 66:26 K:BB ratio in 65 innings. It was his first exposure to Triple-A batting after spending seven seasons in the San Diego organization. Kieschnick went 8 for 41 with Arizona in 2014 and hit .260/.317/.461 with 15 home runs, 49 RBI and five stolen bases in 369 at-bats with Triple-A Reno.
