Angels bolster pitching via trade
By Mark Saxon
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Angels, increasingly concerned about their lack of pitching depth, acquired right-hander Barry Enright from the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday night in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Enright, who has pitched exclusively in the minor leagues this season, will join the Angels' Triple-A Salt Lake team.
Enright, 26, is 7-11 with a 4.87 ERA in 24 major-league starts, including 1-4 with a 7.41 ERA in 2011. He was 9-5 with a 5.21 ERA for Triple-A Reno this season.
"Hopefully, he'll work his way onto our depth chart," manager Mike Scioscia said.
Enright, a Stockton, Calif., native, was a second-round pick out of Pepperdine in 2007.
The Angels began the season with one of the strongest starting rotations in the majors, but injuries to Dan Haren and Jerome Williams and a rough season from Ervin Santana have exposed their lack of options at the Triple-A level.
