News: Cunningham was claimed off waivers by the Angels on Friday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Impact: A second-round pick by Atlanta in 2010, he hit just .261/.325/.337 in 97 games with Triple-A Gwinnett this season and disappointed further in a 39-game look with the big club. It's hard to imagine Cunningham will push for anything more than a reserve role in spring training, if he even survives Rule 5 roster cuts.
Rotowire: Sep 8 / 11:57a ET
News: Cunningham was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.
Impact: Cunningham will return after just two days away from the major league club. With the Triple-A season now concluded, he'll likely finish out the year as an outfield depth option for the Braves. If Cameron Maybin (eye) continues to miss time, Cunningham could find his way into some sporadic playing time in center field.
