Tropeano was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday. Tropeano's most recent stint with the big club lasted just one day, with the right-hander returning to the minors after allowing five runs on seven hits (three homers) in 3.2 innings of relief Sunday against Seattle. Jake Jewell was recalled from Salt Lake in a corresponding move.
The Angels recalled Tropeano from Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday. Though he's mostly worked as a starter in parts of four seasons with the Angels, Tropeano will be on hand in a long-relief role initially as he moves back to the big club. He'll provide a fresh arm behind Sunday's starter, Jose Suarez, who could have a short leash as he makes his way up from Triple-A. Over six outings with Salt Lake spanning 28.1 innings, Tropeano posted a 6.67 ERA and 1.53 WHIP.
Tropeano was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Tropeano is unavailable for a few days after firing five innings as the bulk reliever Tuesday, so the Angels opted to swap him out for a fresh arm in Jake Jewell. The 28-year-old Tropeano allowed three runs while striking out four in his 2019 big-league debut Tuesday, so he should get another chance with the Angels when another opportunity arises.
Tropeano was officially recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake prior to Tuesday's game at Oakland. Tropeano joins the Angels and will serve as the primary pitcher Tuesday behind opener Cam Bedrosian. The 28-year-old struggled over five starts with Salt Lake this season, posting a 7.66 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 21:7 K:BB through 22.1 innings.
Tropeano will be used as the bulk reliever for Tuesday's game against the Athletics, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Tropeano was initially expected to start the contest, but the Angels have since decided to use an opener before calling on the right-hander. Los Angeles has yet to announce who will serve as the opener.
