Angels promote Michael Roth to Majors

6 Comments

With just 27 innings of professional baseball under his belt, Angels prospect Michael Roth has earned a promotion to the Majors.

The University of South Carolina product logged 22 innings in rookie ball last year, posting a 4.91 ERA. He skipped Single-A right to Double-A Arkansas to start this season, and now he’s on his way to Los Angeles to join the Angels bullpen.

Prospect guru Keith Law was shocked to hear of Roth’s promotion, calling him a “pure deception guy” with below-average stuff.
