Dodgers outright Matt Angle, Blake Hawksworth to Triple A Albuquerque

The Dodgers now have 46 players on their 40-man roster, including nine on the 60-day disabled list.

The Dodgers on Friday made a pair of minor roster moves, trimming the edges of their 40-man roster. Outfielder Matt Angle was outrighted to Triple A Albuquerque, as was pitcher Blake Hawksworth, who was first activated from the 60-day disabled list.

Hawksworth missed all of 2012 after undergoing a pair of elbow surgeries last offseason, then endured a series of setbacks which ultimately led to shoulder surgery on Aug. 22 that will likely cause him to miss all of next season. Hawksworth, 29, would have been eligible for salary arbitration this winter, but was a likely non-tender candidate anyway.

Angle was claimed off waivers from the Baltimore Orioles in February, in the early days of spring training camp, back when Matt Kemp was the only Dodgers outfielder signed past the 2012 season. Now, with Kemp, Andre Ethier, and Carl Crawford all signed through at least 2017, and 21-year old Cuban outfielder Yasiel Puig waiting in the wings, the outfield depth situation has changed significantly.

Angle, 27, hit .303/.376/.412 in 115 games with the Isotopes, and stole 13 bases in 16 attempts. He started 104 games in center field for Albuquerque, and one more game in right field.

The Dodgers now have 46 players remaining on their 40-man roster, which includes nine players still on the 60-day disabled list. Those players will come off the DL a few days after the World Series ends, but the Dodgers will have also removed their seven free agents from the 40-man roster by then, in addition to any space created by declining any of their three club options.
