NEW YORK – The Anaheim Angels added one power hitter and sent another one packing on Wednesday.
Overflowing with outfielders, the New York Yankees traded Glenallen Hill to the Angels for Double-A outfielder Darren Blakely.
The Angels also announced they have released 36-year-old Jose Canseco.
Canseco, who agreed to a minor league contract with Anaheim in January, hit .231 with four runs scored, one double, one triple and three RBI in 13 spring training games. In 98 games with the Devil Rays and Yankees last season, Canseco batted .252 with 15 home runs and 49 RBI.
Canseco has the third most homers of any active player (446), and is 23rd on the all-time list. Only Mark McGwire (554) and Barry Bonds (494) have more homers among active players.
Well at least he got another ring last year.
