Angels claim Wall off of Marlins' waivers

MIAMI -- Josh Wall's tenure with the Marlins has ended without the right-hander never having even thrown a pitch at the big league level for the organization.

The Angels on Friday claimed the 26-year-old off waivers, freeing up a 40-man roster spot for Miami.

Wall made six big league relief appearances for the Dodgers this past season, giving up 14 earned runs in seven innings.

On July 6, the Dodgers dealt Wall and two other pitching prospects -- Steven Ames and Angel Sanchez -- to the Marlins for Ricky Nolasco, Miami's all-time wins leader.

In Miami's organization, Wall pitched at Triple-A New Orleans. Although he was on the 40-man roster, he never received a big league callup.

In 45 total Minor League relief appearances, Wall was 2-3 with a 4.56 ERA. In 49 1/3 innings, he posted 46 strikeouts.

Wall was the Dodgers' second round pick in the 2005 First-Year Player Draft.
