ANAHEIM, CA - SEPTEMBER 21: Packy Naughton #58 of the Los Angeles Angels pitches in the second inning of the game against the Houston Astros at Angel Stadium of Anaheim on September 21, 2021 in Anaheim, California.

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals claimed left-hander Packy Naughton off waivers from the Los Angeles Angels on Monday.

The 25-year-old Naughton, who fills out the Cardinals’ 40-man roster, was chosen by the Reds in the ninth round of the 2017 first-year player draft.

The former Virginia Tech star made his major league debut for the Angels last season, going 0-4 with a 7.15 ERA in five starts and seven total appearances.

Naughton spent most of his season in the minors, going 2-2 with a 4.90 ERA in 10 starts and 14 appearances at Double-A Rocket City and Triple-A Salt Lake City.

He did not pitch the previous season because COVID-19 shut down the minors.
