ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) The Los Angeles Angels have designated second baseman Danny Espinosa for assignment Sunday.

Espinosa was hitting .162 with just 14 extra-base hits and 19 RBIs in 77 games for the Angels this season, with his woes exacerbating team-wide struggles to generate offense.

The Angels rank third-to-last among American League teams in runs and batting average, and have scored four runs in two games since returning from the All-Star break despite getting two-time MVP Mike Trout back from a thumb injury.

If Espinosa is released, the Angels would be responsible for the rest of his $5,425,000 salary.
