Angels Minor League Acquisition

Nothing gets by us here at 6-4-2, which is why I'm writing about the following dust mote: canoe.ca writes that the Angels have purchased the contract of Northern League RHP T.J. Stanton. Formerly of the Winnipeg Goldeneyes, his interesting stats are:
ERA    IP  GS  W-L   H/9   K/9  BB/9
====================================
4.72  87.2  9  5-5  8.11  8.79  3.08
Looks like he gets hit pretty hard (.240 AVG against), but also strikes out a fair number too, without walking many. Unknown where he will start, but my guess would be Provo; likely this is organizational fodder. Stanton had been out of baseball for three years, and last pitched for the University of Florida Gators.

Comments:
I thought we were the only team who ventured into the relative uncharted waters of the Independent Leagues.

Once again, I stand corrected.

If nothing else, irrelevant news seems that much more important around this time of year, between the World Series and meaningful free agent signings.
 
IIRC the Angels got Curtis Pride from the independent Newark Bears. So it's not like it's the first time.
