Jo-Jo Reyes signed a minor-league contract with the Angels in November, but Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that they’ve agreed to release the left-hander so he can sign with a Korean League team.
Reyes was a long shot to win a spot on the Angels’ staff after not pitching in the majors at all last season. He was once a solid prospect coming up through the Braves’ farm system, but Reyes is now 28 years old with a 6.05 ERA in 335 career innings.
He spent last year in the Pirates’ organization, throwing 54 innings with a 2.67 ERA and 43/13 K/BB ratio at Triple-A.
