Free agency is upon us in Major League Baseball, as the Los Angeles Angels had four players file for free agency last weekend. But while the main focus is on major league free agency, there are three times as many minor league free agents. Matt Eddy of Baseball America has the full list of 537 minor league free agents, which includes 14 Angels.
Pitcher Jason Bulger and infielder Gil Velazquez are the only two Angels minor league free agents to see time in Anaheim this season. Bulger, who turns 33 in December, came to the Angels in 2006 from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for Alberto Callaspo, who is back in Anaheim now. Bulger has a 4.33 career ERA in 125 games pitched in relief.
Velazquez, 32, is a journeyman infielder who had three hits in six at-bats for the Angels in September. The Angels have 39 players on their 40-man roster.
