After setting their opening-day roster Saturday, the Angels announced several personnel moves following their 2-1 exhibition win over the Dodgers at Angel Stadium.
Infielders Efren Navarro and Luis Rodriguez, catcher Chris Snyder and left-hander Mitch Stetter were all reassigned and catcher John Hester, infielder Luis Jimenez, right-hander David Carpenter and outfielder Kole Calhoun were optioned to triple-A Salt Lake.
Pitchers Ryan Madson and Andrew Taylor were placed on the disabled list.
Snyder, who came over from the Washington Nationals two weeks ago when the Angels grew concerned over Hank Conger's throwing problems, has an opt-out clause that allows him to become a free agent if he's not on the team's opening-day roster. But Angels Manager Mike Scioscia said Saturday that General Manager Jerry Dipoto was talking with Snyder's agent to see if he would accept a minor league job.
"We had a conversation with Chris today. And he understands some of the things that he needs to get back to. And he has the ability to do that," Scioscia said. "We'll see how it progresses with Chris, whether he has another opportunity for another big-league job or he's going to stay in our organization.
