The Angels announced a few roster moves ahead of Friday night’s game versus the Mariners. They recalled first baseman Jared Walsh and left-handed pitcher Jose Quijada from the alternate site, and optioned left-handed pitcher Patrick Sandoval to the alternate site.
“We wanted him to go down there and work on a couple things,” Joe Maddon said in regards to Sandoval being sent down. “Walsh comes up and provides us defense and a left-handed bat. We thought it was in his best interest to move them. That’s it. We just wanted Sandoval and Luis Rengifo to get a little more work in other areas.
