The Reds later launched Ramirez, who rapidly rejoined the Angels on a minor league contract earlier than the season started.

Pena, 31, cleared waivers after a disastrous pair of outings to start out his season. The Angels reinstated Pena from the IL on Might 6 after he recovered from a hamstring damage, and he proceeded to permit seven earned runs on seven hits and 4 walks over 1 2/3 frames. General, since becoming a member of the Angels in 2018, the swingman has given the membership 215 2/3 innings of 4.34 ERA ball with a 23.6 p.c strikeout charge and a 7.7 p.c stroll charge.
