DiGiovanna adds that Cassevah has cleared waivers and now has 72 hours to decide whether or not to accept an assignment to Triple-A. If he elects to decline the assignment he would become a free agent.
Cassevah appeared in four games with the Angels last season, allowing four runs on five hits with six walks and two strikeouts over five innings of work. The 27-year-old spent a majority of the year with Los Angeles' Triple-A club, maintaining an ERA of 6.22 over 44 appearances spanning 46 1/3 innings with a strikeout-to-walk (SO/BB) ratio of 1.47.
Cassevah's most extensive stretch in the majors came in 2011 when he appeared in 30 games for the Angels. That season he posted an ERA of 2.72 over 39 2/3 innings with 1.26 SO/BB. Over three years in the majors, the right-hander owns a career ERA of 3.20.
Cassevah entered camp hoping to claim a spot in the Angels' bullpen. Last spring he started the year in the minors after suffering a slight tear to his rotator cuff, and it looks like he'll face the same fate this season.
