The Los Angeles Angels on Friday announced that they've designated right-hander Matt Harvey for assignment. That means Harvey has been removed from the 40-man roster, and the Angels now have one week to trade him or place him on irrevocable waivers.

The Angels signed Harvey this past offseason to a one-year, $11 million contract. Harvey last season enjoyed a modest renaissance after being traded from the Metsto the Reds, but the upward trajectory was swiftly reversed with the Angels.
