Biographical information[edit]

Bobby Cassevah is a pitcher who made his major league debut with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in 2010.

He was drafted in the 34th round of the 2004 amateur draft by the Anaheim Angels. He was signed by scout Tom Kotchman and made his pro debut that summer.

Cassevah began his professional career in 2005 with the AZL Angels. With them, he went 2-5 with a 5.40 ERA in 15 games (4 starts), allowing a .318 average. He pitched for the Orem Owlz in 2006, going 2-5 with a 6.80 ERA in 16 games (10 starts). Despite a .337 opponent average and almost a walk per inning (38 in 41), the Angels stuck with him.

He became a reliever in 2007 and performed well, going 2-1 with a 2.75 ERA in 24 combined relief appearances for the Orem Owlz and Cedar Rapids Kernels. In 2008, he went 2-3 with a 3.79 ERA in 44 relief appearances for the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes. He went 3-7 with a 3.68 ERA in 57 relief appearances for the Arkansas Travelers in 2009.

On December 10, 2009, the Oakland Athletics drafted him from the Angels in the 2009 Rule V Draft. He was offered back to the Angels at the end of spring training as he failed to make the Athletics' roster on the strength of two innings of work, then was called up to the major league club a few days into the season, having made only one appearance for the Salt Lake Buzz when Robb Quinlan was sent down to the minors. He made his debut on April 9, giving up only one hit in 2⅓ innings against the A's.
