Bailey signed a minor league contract with the Angels on Saturday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

A closer candidate with the Phillies in spring training, Bailey missed a chunk of the season due to injury -- a familiar theme throughout his career. Bailey returned last September after missing more than two years due to shoulder troubles. He will report to Triple-A Salt Lake but could earn a promotion if he fares well in the weeks ahead.

The Phillies released Bailey on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey was struggling of late, allowing 19 runs on 24 hits with an 18:8 K:BB over 18.1 innings since the beginning of June. He should be able to find an opportunity with another club.

The Phillies have requested UR waivers for the purpose of granting Bailey his unconditional release, Meghan Montemurro of The News Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey was designated for assignment on Tuesday after producing an ERA over 10 since June and is now expected to be released from the ball club entirely. At only 32 years old and a career 3.20 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in the majors, it seems likely he will be scooped up by another team in the future, but for now, he's headed for free agency.

Bailey has been designated for assignment by the Phillies on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey has really struggled over his last 10 outings with the Phillies, posting a 13.50 ERA in eight innings of relief. The 32-year-old doesn't really factor in the Phillies long-term plans, so this move opens up more innings for their young arms to get work. Right-hander Luis Garcia has been recalled by the Phillies.

Bailey allowed two runs on three hits Sunday and was tagged with his first loss of the season.

EDGE Analysis

The two runs came on a home run by Jeff Francoeur. Since the beginning of June, Bailey has allowed 19 runs on 24 hits with an 18:8 K:BB over 18.1 innings. His roster spot could be in jeopardy if he isn't able to turn things around soon.

Bailey (hamstring) was activated from the DL on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Bailey is back ahead of Friday's game following a three-week stint on the disabled list. Bailey needed just one rehab appearance with Triple-A Lehigh Valley to prove his health -- he retired the side on 12 pitches, striking out two in the outing. The right-hander has managed three holds in 25 appearances this season.

Manager Pete Mackanin said he expects Bailey (hamstring) to be activated from the disabled list before Friday's game, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Phillies opened up a roster spot for Bailey after Thursday's game by optioning Adam Morgan to Triple-A. Bailey has been sidelined since June 22 with a mild hamstring strain.

Bailey will begin a minor league rehab at Triple-A Wednesday, Ryan Lawrence of the Philly Voice reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey has pitched 26 innings for the Phillies so far in 2016, notching a 4.39 ERA and striking out 28. He should slot back into a late-inning role upon his return. Jeanmar Gomez has been very good closing games this year for the Phillies, so Bailey isn't considered a threat to his job.

Bailey (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day DL Friday with a left hamstring strain.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey left Wednesday's game with a strained hamstring and will require a trip to the DL to return to full strength. The injury is considered mild so it's expected that he should return to the Phillies bullpen as soon as he's eligible on July 9. The 32-year-old relief man has given up nine earned runs over his last 11 innings of work (7.36 ERA).
