The list of every club's minor league free agents has been released by Baseball America (LINK). This is the list that alerted Angels General Manager Jerry Dipoto to the availability of pitcher Jeremy McBryde who was immediately offered a major league contract by the Halos.

McBryde's name is still listed there and there are lots of familiar names, some of which are surprising in that they were still playing organized baseball this season and others because their names carried an assumption of greater accomplishments.

Here is a screen shot of Angels organization players who are now free agents by virtue of not being on the 40-Man roster:
