Angels DFA Jeff DeVanon

The Angels said goodbye to a long-time bench player when Jeff DeVanon was Designated for Assignment Wednesday to make room for free-agent pitcher Hector Carrasco.

DeVanon has shown some streaks of strong hitting in the past but lacked the consistant bat to make him a full-time player.

Richard at Pearly Gates is a long-time DeVanon devotee but even he seems to realize that losing JD has essentially no effect on the Angels going forward. The Halos have a strong contingent of players ready to contribute from the bench including Juan Rivera, Chone Figgins, Robb Quinlan, Maicer Izturis and prospects such as Jeff Mathis, Howie Kendrick and Brandon Wood though it is unlikely Kendrick or Wood would make the big club unless an injury opened up a spot.
