Hurley Makes MLB Return
SALT LAKE CITY (July 6, 2012) - The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim announced today that the club has recalled right-handed pitcher Eric Hurley from Triple-A Salt Lake. This roster move was made in correspondence to the club's option of right-handed pitcher Garrett Richards to Salt Lake following last night's game.
Hurley, 26, has appeared in 17 games (all starts) for the Bees in 2012, owning a 7-7 record with a 5.38 ERA. He made 16 starts for Triple-A Round Rock in 2011, finishing with an 8-3 record and a 5.55 ERA. The Jacksonville, Fla. native missed the 2009 and 2010 seasons due to injury. Originally selected by the Texas Rangers in the first round of the 2004 Draft, Hurley joined the Angels via free agency on December 23, 2011. His first appearance with the Angels will be his first major league appearance since July 27, 2008 when he was with the Rangers.
Richards, 24, has appeared in seven games (six starts) for the Angels in 2012, owning a 2-1 record with a 4.21 ERA. In 10 games (all starts) for the Bees this season, he owns a 5-2 record with a 4.31 ERA. The Edmond, Okla. native was originally selected by the Angels in the first round of the 2009 Draft.
The Salt Lake Bees continue a five-game homestand tonight against the Tacoma Rainiers at 7:05 p.m. with a fireworks show following the game. 2012 Bees ticket packages are still available. For more information, call (801) 325-BASE or visit slbees.com.
