Pitcher traded for Santana cut by Angels


SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Brandon Sisk, the relief pitcher the Royals traded for starting pitcher Ervin Santana, was cut by the Angels on Sunday and assigned to their Minor League camp.

Sisk appeared in just two Cactus League games, giving up one run and one hit in two innings. A left-hander, Sisk last year pitched in 50 games for Triple-A Omaha and had a 3-2 record with eight saves and a 2.54 ERA.

Santana, his $13 million option declined by the Angels, would have become a free agent had not the Royals jumped in with a trade offer at the last moment.
