Angels claim OF Dillon Thomas off waivers from Astros

The Los Angeles Angels reacquired Dillon Thomas on Monday, claiming the outfielder off waivers from the Houston Astros and assigning him to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Thomas, 29, began the season with the Angels and appeared in one game, going 0-for-2 with a walk and a run in a 5-2 win against the Boston Red Sox on June 9.

The Astros claimed Thomas off waivers on June 15 and sent him to Triple-A Sugar Land. He hit .267 there with one home run and one RBI in five games before being designated for assignment on Friday.

The Angels designated right-handed reliever Kyle Barraclough for assignment in a corresponding move on Monday. Barraclough, 32, was 0-1 with a 3.00 ERA in eight appearances for Los Angeles.

He is 18-15 with a 3.61 ERA and 11 saves in 288 games (zero starts) since 2015 for the Miami Marlins, Washington Nationals, San Francisco Giants, Minnesota Twins and Angels.
