The Angels claimed right-handed reliever J.C. Gutierrez on waivers from the Kansas City Royals, giving them another bullpen option.

Gutierrez, 30, had a 3.38 earned-run average in 25 appearances in Kansas City. The Royals designated him for assignment last week.

Gutierrez underwent Tommy John surgery in 2011. This is his first full season since the surgery.

Gutierrez has a 4.58 ERA in 175 career appearances, most of them for the Arizona Diamondbacks from 2009-11. Angels General Manager Jerry Dipoto was a Diamondbacks executive then, including a short stint in 2010 as interim general manager.

The Angels made no immediate announcement of a roster move Wednesday, but Gutierrez is out of options.
