Angels Claim Hansel Robles

Posted On: Jun 23, 2018   |   Posted By: MLB Trade Rumors

The Angels announced today that they've claimed righty reliever Hansel Robles off waivers from the Mets. Robles was designated for assignment just yesterday.
As MLBTR's Jeff Todd noted at that time, Robles put up some solid numbers for the Mets during the 2015 and 2016 seasons. He pitched 131 2/3 innings during that span, allowing 52 earned runs while racking up 146 strikeouts. Robles also pitched three scoreless postseason innings in 2015 without allowing a walk or a hit.
That seems to be in the distant past now, as Robles has an ERA close to 5.00 since the start of the 2017 season. He's also seen a spike in his walk rate to 4.59 BB/9 during that time frame. Still, the Angels will hope he can add depth to a bullpen that seems to lack stability, as they've got a number of relievers with upside but none who have proven themselves reliable across an extended stretch. For the time being, Robles will report to Triple-A Salt Lake.
