Michael Roth and Jackson Williams were designated for assignment.

Both players were cleared from the 40-man roster to make room for some other options the Angels wanted a better look at. They'll likely hang out in the Angels system rather than try out the free agent market.

Angels added catcher Jett Bandy and reliever Dan Reynolds to their 40-man roster.

Both players have been part of the Angels minor league system though both are more Double-A ready than anything else. They'll get a chance to compete during spring training, but that's more for the experience than anything else.

Mike Trout was named the American League Most Valuable Player.

Very little surprise here. Trout is now the youngest player to receive the award unanimously as he received 30 first-place votes. The young phenom finished the season batting .287 with 36 home runs and 111 RBIs while playing excellent defense. This should be the first of many MVP awards for a player that was widely regarded to be snubbed of the honor the last two seasons. Victor Martinez and Michael Brantley finished second and third, respectively.

Roger Kieschnick cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake.

No team wanted to take a chance on the 27-year old outfielder so he will head to Salt Lake to serve as positional depth. In 63 career games at the big league level, he has a .200 batting average.

Angels GM Jerry Dipoto said no talks "yet" on extension with Huston Street.

Street enjoyed a solid 2014 season and was the dominant force in the back end of the Angels bullpen. Street enjoyed the departure from the lowly Padres to a serious contender like the Angels, and his numbers showed. He posted career best numbers, and Street will be a top closing option again in 2015.
