Angels acquire Josh Rutledge from Rockies


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rutledge has spent three seasons in the majors and hit .269/.323/.405 with four home runs and 33 RBI in 309 at-bats in 2014.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Detwiler posted a 4.00 ERA out of the bullpen last season. He has experience as a starter, but likely won't reprise that role if he remains with the Nationas. Detwiler, 28, is also eligible for arbitration, and would become a free-agent following the season.
