The Los Angeles Angels announced Saturday that catcher Wade Wass has been promoted from the Double-A Mobile BayBears to Triple-A Salt Lake.

His six May homers were tied for the third-most in the circuit.
 
After missing majority of the second half of 2017 on the disabled list, Wass returned to Mobile to begin the 2018 season. In 13 games, he had a 3.46 catcher’s ERA and hit a home run on April 25.
 
In 297 Minor League games, Wass has a .258 batting average with 39 home runs and 136 RBIs. He has logged 1,587 innings at catcher in 188 games with five different Angels affiliates.
