The Angels optioned pitcher Hector Yan on Wednesday, one of the few roster cuts so far in spring training.

Signed out of the Dominican Republic in 2015, the left-hander was added to the 40-man roster after the 2019 season. Yan pitched in one game this spring, allowing two runs on four hits while recording two outs against Arizona on March 4, and surrendered a home run to Daulton Varsho.

So far in spring, with no structured minor league camp just yet amid the pared-down camps under MLB health and safety protocols, the transactions have been few and far between. The Angels optioned pitcher Jose Quijada on March 2, and sent pitcher Gerardo Reyes outright to the minors on March 5, removing him from the 40-man roster.
