ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -The AL West-leading Los Angeles Angels designated right-hander Hector Carrasco for assignment Tuesday and recalled right-hander Chris Resop from Triple-A Salt Lake.
The 37-year-old Carrasco was 2-1 with a 6.57 ERA in one start and 28 relief appearances this season. He signed with the Angels as a free agent on Dec. 2, 2005.
The Angels have 10 days to trade, release or send him to the minors.
Carrasco, originally signed by the New York Mets organization as a non-drafted free agent in 1988, has a 44-50 record with 19 saves and a 4.00 ERA in 10 starts and 638 relief appearances. He played for the Cincinnati Reds, Kansas City Royals, Minnesota Twins, Boston Red Sox, Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals before joining the Angels.
Carrasco was roughed up in his final appearance for the Angels, allowing three runs in the seventh inning of a 6-3 loss to the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday.
Resop was 1-3 with a 4.57 ERA in 27 games at Salt Lake. The Angels acquired the 24-year-old pitcher from the Florida Marlins last November for right-hander Kevin Gregg.
The Marlins took Resop in the fourth round of the 2001 free agent draft. He has a 3-2 record and a 5.63 ERA in 37 games for Florida in the 2005-06 seasons.
