MOBILE, Ala. (May 6, 2019) - The Los Angeles Angels announced Monday that right-handed pitcher Adrian De Horta has been reinstated from the temporarily inactive list and promoted from the Double-A Mobile BayBears to Triple-A Salt Lake.
De Horta, 24, appeared in three games with the BayBears during the month of April. De Horta pitched an immaculate seventh inning against Pensacola in his first outing on April 8, needing just nine pitches to strike out the side. In 13 1/3 innings pitched over three games, two starts, he allowed three runs on seven hits with eight walks and 23 strikeouts.
