Angels OF Tony Campana, who had cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake, has elected free agency.

Campana hit .187 over 44 games last season between the Angels and Diamondbacks and really only provides elite stolen base ability if he is capable of getting on base. Campana will likely sign a minor league deal somewhere and be a depth call up should the team have a need.

Angels declined 2015 club option on LHP Sean Burnett.

Burnett pitched just three games this season due to injury and will look to regain his 2012 form where he appeared in 70 games for the Nationals going 1-2 with a 2.38 ERA out of the bullpen.

Angels exercised 2015 club option on RHP Huston Street.

Street saved 17 games for the Angels this season after being acquired from the Padres prior to the MLB trade deadline. Street has been among the leads best closers over the past few seasons and should continue to see plenty of save opportunities while on the Angels.

Tony Campana has elected free agency after being outrighted by the Angels.

Campana is a speedster and he hopes that asset will land him a contract with a team. For a player who says his best asset is his speed, he wasn't a very effective base stealer in triple-A.

Ryan Brasier was outrighted off the Angels' 40-man roster Monday.

This move was done to clear Brasier from the Angels' 40-man roster, but there's a good chance he'll end up back with the team next season. Brasier missed the entire 2013 campaign with Tommy John surgery, but will have a solid shot at securing a bullpen spot whether it's with the Angels or another team.

Tony Campana was outrighted off the Angels' 40-man roster Monday.

The speedster is a very one-dimensional player, but his legs have value, so he'll find a minor league deal next spring without issue. He isn't likely to spend much time at the major league level, but he's a name to remember if he ever gets a semi-regular job and you're desperate for steals.

The Los Angeles Times? Mike DiGiovanna is reporting that the Angels? first order of business after the World Series is to pick up Huston Street?s $7 million option for the following season.

The Angels have not had a consistent closer since Troy Percival. They kept bringing him back thinking he could still do the job until it was obvious he was done. Huston Street would be the closest shut down guy they've had since and looks like they're willing to do whatever to lock him up in the 9th inning role.

Mike Trout has been awarded the Hank Aaron award, acknowledging the American League's best hitter for 2014.

While the nitpickers focus on the major drop in stolen bases and increase in strikeouts, the rest of us can enjoy the .287/.377/.561 slash line with a career-best 36 home runs and 111 RBI. Throw in the 105 runs scored and the 16 stolen bases and you still have excellent five-category production. The drop in speed should have been expected with the developing power and drop in the batting order. He might pick that number up to the 20-25 range next season or in the future and if we're making predictions as to where he'll plateau, we'll throw the .300-100-40-100-20 stat line out there.

Angels claim Jackson Williams off waivers from the Rockies.

Williams posted a .256/.353/.368 slash line for Triple-A Colorado Springs last season though he hit just four home runs over 242 at-bats. His defensive skills are solid and he's got nice plate discipline (12.9-percent walk rate), so he could find his way into a back-up job for the Halos next season.

Angels may look at converting Cory Rasmus into a full-time starter for next season.

The Angles will look to build some depth in the rotation by adding Rasmus to a full time-starting role, as both C.J. Wilson and Garrett Richards will be question marks going into the season. Rasmus was very solid in his limited time as a starter last season, making six starts with a 2.37 ERA and 0.84 WHIP, though he only three to four innings per start. Rasmus and the Angles hope that the 26-year old will be able to tailor his offseason workouts towards being able to throw enough pitches to be a starter. If he can pitch next season like how he did in 2014, he could land a spot on the rotation and put up solid numbers.
