Dodgers claim outfielder Angle off waivers
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Dodgers claimed speedy outfielder Matt Angle off waivers from the Orioles on Thursday and made room for him on the 40-man roster by placing injured pitcher Rubby De La Rosa on the 60-day disabled list.

Angle, 26, played 31 games for the Orioles last season, hitting .177 with one homer, seven RBIs and 11 stolen bases after spending most of the year at Triple-A Norfolk.

He's a 5-foot-10, 175-pound defensive specialist, a left-handed hitter and leadoff type who was a seventh-round Draft pick in 2007. Angle was designated for assignment by Baltimore.

Angle, who has two years of options remaining, gives the Dodgers some Triple-A outfield protection should they lose Trent Oeltjen, who is out of options and a longshot to make the 25-man roster.

De La Rosa is recovering nicely from Tommy John surgery in August, but he's not expected to be game ready until after the All-Star break at the earliest.
