Claimed 3B-R Chris Nelson off waivers from the Yankees. [5/18]

Designated OF-L Scott Cousins for assignment. [5/18]

The Angels are currently rolling with a three-man bench, so versatility is king. Nelson is versatile, and athletic, and he swings a fast bat. Unfortunately those assets are undermined by other aspects of his game. Nelson's plate discipline is poor and his arm is stretched at third base, which is to say there's reason why the Rockies and Yankees dismissed him after quick looks this season. Still, the Angels could—and have—done much worse, given the opportunity and transaction costs involved.
