Phil Seibel
Angels Press Release
Posted Dec 15, 2006

The Angels Friday acquired left-handed pitcher Phil Seibel from the Boston Red Sox in exchange for right-handed pitcher Brendan Donnelly.

Phil Seibel, 27, split the 2006 season with Single-A Greenville, Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket. He registered a combined record of 6-3 with a 1.25 ERA (79 IP - 11 ER) in 29 games (13 starts). He missed the 2005 campaign after undergoing "Tommy John" surgery on his left elbow following the 2004 season. In 2004, he appeared in two games as a reliever with the Red Sox (0-0, 0.00 ERA, 3.2 IP, 0 ER).

A local graduate from Cypress High School, Seibel pitched three seasons for the University of Texas, going 5-2 with a 2.42 ERA as a junior to help the Longhorns reach the 2000 College World Series.

Donnelly, 35, completed his fifth season with the Angels in 2006 registering a 6-0 record and a 3.94 ERA (64 IP - 28 ER) in 62 games. He allowed 58 hits (8 HRs), walked 28 and struck out 53 in that span. Overall, 19 of his last 21 outings were scoreless as he notched a 5-0 mark and 3.52 ERA in 29 games after All-Star break. He limited opponents to a .240 clip, including a .204 mark (29/142) against right-handers.

A native of Washington, DC, Donnelly owns a 23-8 lifetime mark with four saves and a 2.87 ERA (295 IP - 94 ER) in his five major league seasons. Before joining the Angels in 2002, he spent 10 years in minor leagues with nine different organizations (including two independent teams). Donnelly was a 2003 All-Star and earned the win in relief at U.S. Cellular Field.
