Angels claim Josh Wall off waivers from Marlins

USA Today Sports

The reliever was acquired by Miami in a July trade for Ricky Nolasco.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have claimed right-handed pitcher Josh Wall off waivers from the Miami Marlins, according to Angels' Vice President of Communications Tim Mead. Wall was likely recently waived in an attempt by Miami to clear 40-man roster space in advance of the offseason.

Wall, 26, only spent three months in the Marlins' organization after being acquired from the Dodgers along with Angel Sanchez and Steven Ames in exchange for starter Ricky Nolasco at the beginning of July. In twenty games with Triple-A New Orleans, the reliever posted a 1-1 record and 3.27 ERA in 22 innings of work, bringing his season total to a 4.56 ERA in 49.1 innings split between Triple-A Albuquerque and New Orleans. He also appeared in six major league games with Los Angeles at the beginning of the season, surrendering fourteen earned runs on seventeen hits in seven innings of work. In thirteen career major league appearances with the Dodgers (2012-2013), the former second round pick is 1-1 with a 12.08 ERA, 7.8 K/9, and 5.0 BB/9.

If Wall is able to stay with the Angels' organization through the entire offseason, he will likely go to spring training in hopes of landing a major league bullpen spot or providing depth at Triple-A Salt Lake.
