Jepsen, 28, had appeared in six games of relief for the Angels this season (0-1, 9.82) before being placed on the disabled list April 12 due to a right triceps injury. He appeared in 49 games of relief for the Angels in 2012, with a 3-2 record and a 3.02 ERA. Jepsen also appeared in 23 games for the Bees last season, finishing with a 2-2 record, 3.24 ERA and 35 strikeouts.

The Anaheim, Calif., native was originally selected by the Angels in the second round of the 2002 Draft.
