ANA­HEIM — The Los An­ge­les An­gels have ac­quired right-handed re­liever Kyle Keller from the Mi­ami Mar­lins.

The An­gels traded mi­nor league catcher Jose Estrada to Mi­ami on Mon­day.

The 26-year-old Keller made his ma­jor league de­but last Aug. 4 and pitched in 10 games for the Mar­lins, post­ing a 3.38 ERA with 11 strike­outs. He ex­celled with Triple-A New Or­leans, hold­ing op­po­nents to a .217 bat­ting av­er­age with a rate of 12.2 strike­outs per nine in­nings, 10th-best in the Pa­cific Coast League.

The An­gels also des­ig­nated re­liever Jake Jewell for as­sign­ment.
