TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Veterans Carlos Pena, Chad Tracy and Yorvit Torrealba have been released by the Los Angeles Angels after failing to win roster spots during spring training.

The Angels also reassigned left-hander Wade LeBlanc to minor-league camp Sunday.

Tracy batted .303 with seven RBIs during 17 spring games with the Angels, but couldn't win a job as a backup corner infielder.

Pena was hoping to be Albert Pujols' backup at first base, but the former All-Star batted just .139 with 14 strikeouts in spring training.

Torrealba is a 12-year major league veteran catcher, but the Angels are set at the position with Chris Iannetta and Hank Conger.
