September 30, 2021
Junk was optioned by the Angels on Thursday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Junk presumably wasn't going to pitch again this season after starting Wednesday's game against the Rangers, so the Angels may as well give his roster spot to someone who could actually use it. He'll end his rookie season having produced a 3.86 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in four major-league starts. Matt Thaiss was called up to take his place on the roster.
