The Angels waived infielder-designated hitter Shea Hillenbrand on Monday, a disappointment for Los Angeles after signing a $6.5 million, one-year contract in December. The 31-year-old Hillenbrand batted .254 with three homers and 22 RBIs in 53 games with the Angels.

The Angels designated him for assignment on June 29.

So where will he end up? The Twins could use a third baseman but I don't think I'd replace Punto, a clubhouse favorite, for a guy that isn't all that great to begin with and might be a clubhouse cancer. I just can't see a contender taking a chance with him.

I thought there were rumors that the Yankees wanted to trade for him?
