Angels designate Chris Nelson for assignment

Chris is on an eight-team pace for 2013.

Nelson, 27, appeared in seven games for the Halos but received just nine plate appearances, collecting three singles. The Angels were the third team for which the former No. 9 overall draft pick has played this season, as he also saw time with the Rockies and Yankees before being designated for assignment by each of those clubs as well.

How do you get DFA'd twice and not end up on the Blue Jays? Third time's the charm?

I thought he was still on the Yankees to be honest.

Maybe he can be traded for Casper Wells.

Nelson is well on his way to setting the record for most teams in one season. Several guys have played for four teams, most recently Dave Martinez and Dave Kingman.

Can Nelson play the outfield? If so, the Mets would be a good stop.

If anybody's third baseman goes down and they need a stopgap, Nelson would be good for that. He's not quite cromulent at third.... what's one step below cromulent? Passable?

Jose Bautista played for the Orioles, Devil Rays, Royals and Pirates in 2004. He was also traded from the Royals to the Mets, but traded on to the Pirates without playing for the Mets.

Edit: slightly different topic, but as Pirate property in 1996 Elmer Dessens pitched for Pittsburgh, Calgary, Carolina (SL), and Mexico City.

Ted Gray played for the White Sox, Indians, Yankees and Orioles in 1955.

The Red Sox just DFA'd their utility guy, so if they have some injury I could see them being Nelson's 4th team.

The Pirates just DFA'd their injured AAA utility guy, John McDonald, but they have no need for this Nelson character.

Hurdle was gone by the time Nelson saw MLB time, but Hurdle must know him from Spring Training and minor league reports. I don't know if that's reassuring or not.

Nelson is not really a utility guy. He won't embarrass you at third base, but he'd be really stretched in the middle infield.

As a high school pitcher, he could supposedly throw 100 mph before he blew his arm out.

In my mind, the Dodgers desperately needed a 3B, but Juan Uribe has somehow hit .333/.373/.500 over the past month.

In 1951, Paul Lehner played for the A's, White Sox, Browns, and Indians. In 1952, he played for Toronto, Indianapolis, Seattle, and Oakland.

His nickname was "Gulliver."
