• In order to make room on the roster for Rasmus, the Angels designated right-hander Billy Buckner for assignment for the third time. If he clears waivers again, he can elect free agency. Rasmus is the 25th pitcher used by the Angels, which is second in team history and four shy of the club record set in 1996.
• Minor League outfielder Angel Montilla, playing for the Angels' Dominican Summer League, was handed a 50-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball's Drug Policy on Friday. Montilla -- a 20-year-old who was batting .234 with no homers in 40 games -- tested positive for Nandrolone, an anabolic steroid. His suspension is effective immediately.
• Mariners skipper Eric Wedge returned to the team on Friday for the first time since having a stroke on July 22, saying he's rested and ready to do the job again.
"Great to see Eric back," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "He's a really good baseball man, and I know he loves managing. It's scary when something like that happens."
• Outfielder Zach Borenstein, taking in the 23rd round in 2011, was named the California League Most Valuable Player on Friday. Borenstein, 23, posted a .332/.396/.628 slash line with 25 homers and 87 RBIs in 102 games for Class A Inland Empire.
