Bridwell was designated for assignment by the Angels on Tuesday to make room for new acquisition John Curtiss, who was picked up in a trade from the Twins. Bridwell had already been DFA'd once by the Angels this offseason back in November. That time, he was claimed by the Yankees, only to be DFA'd again less than a month later and reacquired by his old team. It remains to be seen whether he'll land with another team this time around.
Bridwell was claimed off waivers by the Angels on Friday, Jeff Fletcher of the Southern California News Group reports. Bridwell returns to the Angels' organization after being designated for assignment by the Yankees earlier this week. The 27-year-old spent the past two years with Los Angeles, pitching in 26 big-league games, though he was hampered by injuries throughout the 2018 season. He will come into spring training fully operational and could contend for a starting spot in the Angels' rotation.
Bridwell was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Monday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports. Bridwell's tenure on the Yankees' 40-man roster was short-lived, as he'd only been claimed off waivers in late November. He'll make way on the roster for J.A. Happ, whose contract was finalized Monday.
Bridwell was claimed off waivers by the Yankees on Monday. An elbow injury limited Bridwell to just 34.2 innings in 2018. The right-hander failed to impress when healthy, posting an 8.68 ERA across six starts (28 innings) with Triple-A Salt Lake while struggling to a 17.55 ERA across five appearances (6.2 innings) for the big club. He did post a 3.64 ERA and 1.20 WHIP across 121 innings (20 starts) with the Angels in 2017. Ronald Torreyes was designated for assignment in order to free up a roster spot for Bridwell.
Bridwell (elbow) was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. As expected, Bridwell is back with the Angels for the final stretch of the season after fully recovering from elbow surgery he underwent in July. The right-hander, who was rocked for six runs on seven hits in his lone appearance for the big club this season, will be immediately available out of the bullpen for Los Angeles.
