Angels' Ben Rowen: DFA'd by Halos

Rowen was designated for assignment by the Angels on Wednesday. The 32-year-old surrendered six runs over his last two appearances out of the bullpen, leading to his removal from the 40-man roster. Rowen was promoted by the Angels in mid-April and had a 5.56 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 8:2 K:BB over 11.1 innings.

Angels' Ben Rowen: Gets camp invite from Angels

Rowen joined the Angels as a non-roster invitee Thursday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Rowen has just 11.2 innings of major-league experience, none of which have come since 2016. He gave up nine earned runs in his brief cups of coffee. Now 32 years old, it would be a surprise to see him earn a roster spot.
