• Infielder Chris Nelson, designated for assignment on Monday, cleared waivers and has been outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake. Nelson went 3-for-9 while appearing in seven games during his three-week stint with the Angels.
• The Angels agreed to terms on a Minor League contract with left-hander Dustin Richardson on Friday. Richardson was pitching in independent ball for the Sugar Land Skeeters, posting a 1.04 ERA in 8 2/3 innings. The 29-year-old appeared in 26 games for the Red Sox in 2010 and was suspended 50 games at the start of 2012 for violating Major League Baseball's Drug Policy. He's expected to report to Salt Lake this weekend.
