Curtiss cleared waivers Friday and was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake. No team was particularly interested in a 26-year-old with just 17.1 major-league innings under his belt and a 6.75 career ERA. He could be back with the Angels at some point this season, but the fact that he's no longer on the 40-man roster makes that less likely.
Curtiss was designated for assignment Tuesday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Curtiss was booted off the 40-man roster to make room for Griffin Canning, who's set to make his major-league debut Tuesday night. Curtiss will hit the waiver wire after making one appearance for the Angels in 2019, allowing a run on two hits and three walks while fanning one over 2.1 frames.
Curtiss was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake City on Sunday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Registerreports. Curtiss was recalled in a corresponding move that sent Jaime Barria to Triple-A. He's already pitched briefly at the major-league level this season, logging 2.1 innings and striking out one while allowing one earned run. He figures to add depth to the bullpen but likely won't factor much into high-leverage situations.
Curtiss was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Curtiss tossed 2.1 innings and allowed a run while striking out one and walking three during Monday's matchup, so he'll be sent back to Triple-A in order to add a fresh arm to the bullpen. Dillon Peters was called up in a corresponding move.
Curtiss was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday. Curtiss has thrown 15 major-league innings over the last two seasons, all with the Twins, struggling to a 7.20 ERA. He's allowed four runs in 3.2 innings with a 3:6 K:BB for Salt Lake this season. Taylor Ward was optioned to Salt Lake in a corresponding move.
