Angels designate Brad Hawpe for assignment.

The Angels have designated first baseman/outfielder Brad Hawpe for assignment and added Triple-A pitcher Daniel Stange to their 40-man roster.

Hawpe was an All-Star with the Colorado Rockies five years ago, and one of several veteran reclamation projects the Angels used to fill out the bottom of their 40-man roster. After a good showing at Triple-A, he never got hot in the majors, batting .185 (5 for 27) in 17 games with the Angels.

Stange, a 27-year-old right-hander, was 3-0 with a 3.60 earned-run average in 15 games, all in relief, for Salt Lake. He was released by the San Diego Padres on June 16 and signed a minor-league contract with the Angels five days later. He was drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks out of UC Riverside in 2006, when current Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto was the D-Backs’ director of scouting and player personnel.
