ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - The Los Angeles Angels have traded outfielder Daniel Nava to the Kansas City Royals.

The Angels announced the deal Monday night.

Los Angeles also traded cash considerations to the Royals, who will send back cash or a player to be named later.

Nava struggled in his only season with the Angels, who hoped he could fill their gaping void in left field after adding him in the offseason. He batted .235 with one homer and 13 RBIs in 45 games for the Angels, and he missed 46 games with tendinitis and a groin strain.

The Angels designated Nava for assignment on July 30 along with Craig Gentry, the other half of the Angels’ disappointing outfield tandem.

Nava is expected to head to Triple-A Omaha for the Royals.
