Angels get LHP Jones from Orioles for 2 minor leaguers
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) The Los Angeles Angels have acquired left-hander Chris Jones from the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for two minor leaguers.
Angels general manager Billy Eppler announced the deal Tuesday.
The 27-year-old Jones had a 2.94 ERA in 30 appearances (22 starts) with Triple-A Norfolk last season. He has pitched in Triple-A each of the past three seasons but has yet to appear in a major league game.
Baltimore picked up outfielder Natanael Delgado and infielder Erick Salcedo.
The 20-year-old Delgado hit .241 with six homers in 108 games in Class A last season. Salcedo, 22, played at four levels last year, climbing from Class A to Triple-A while batting .232 with 12 stolen bases in 95 games.
