Latest Update Angels have designated Michael Kohn and J.B. Shuck for assignment Tue Sep, 02, 04:56 PM
Is an excellent contact hitter who doesn't strike out much at all. Can also steal bases and be used as a table-setter at the top of the batting order.
Flaws: : Has virtually no power to speak of, which hurts his chances of playing regularly. Also, he must do a better job defensively, where he struggles.
The Angels are looking to build on their pitching and they need to make room on the 40-man roster. J.B. Shuck just happens to be the unlucky one who doesn't get a spot on this roster. Analyst:
Once the Angels activated C.J. Wilson from the DL to pitch on Saturday, this move was likely, as he was only brought up as insurance if Josh Hamilton's knee was a bigger issue than it apparently is.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
Shuck will provide outfield depth, with Josh Hamilton's sore knee initiating the move. His recall resluts in Fenrando Salas going down to Triple-A to free up a spot on the active roster.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
Shuck was the other shoe that dropped with David Freese landing on the DL the Angels had called up both prospect CJ Cron and Luis Jimenez. Shucks spot on the roster will be taken by Cron who will DH tonight making his Major League debut. Shuck had struggled with the Angels this season hitting only .173 over 81 at bats.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
