ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Angels have sent minor league second baseman Sean Rodriguez to the Tampa Bay Rays to complete last week's trade for Scott Kazmir.

The Rays said Tuesday that Rodriguez will report to Triple-A Durham.

Tampa Bay traded Kazmir, their former ace, to the AL West leaders on Aug. 28 for two minor leaguers and a player to be named.

The 24-year-old Rodriguez was hitting .299 with 29 home runs and 93 RBIs at Triple-A Salt Lake. He played nine games for the Angels and hit two homers.
