Angels acquire Luis Rengifo from Tampa Bay

Minor League infielder is player to be named later to complete C.J. Cron trade to Rays

The Angels today acquired minor league INF Luis Rengifo from Tampa Bay to complete the Feb. 17 trade which sent INF C.J. Cron to the Rays. Today's announcement was made by Angels General Manager Billy Eppler.
 
Rengifo, 21, appeared in 125 total games last season between Class-A Clinton (Mariners affiliate) and Class-A Bowling Green (Rays affiliate) in the Midwest League. He combined to bat .250 (124/496) with 27 doubles, five triples, 12 home runs, 52 RBI and 34 stolen bases. He was one of three minor leaguers traded by Seattle to Tampa Bay on Aug. 6, 2017 in exchange for C Mike Marjama and RHP Ryan Garton.
 
A native of Naguanagua, Venezuela, Rengifo was originally signed by the Mariners as an international free agent in 2014. Across his four minor league seasons, the switch hitter has batted .255 (268/1049) with 55 doubles, 15 triples, 16 home runs, 116 RBI and 86 stolen bases. Defensively, he has appeared primarily at second base and shortstop but has also played third base and all three outfield positions.
