After the 1980 season, Fred was sent to the California Angels where he spent the next four seasons; unfortunately, his numbers declined over the years, and after his contract expired in 1984, the Angels decided not to re-sign him, so he joined the Baltimore Orioles for which he played between 1985 and 1988, but due to several injuries and so a further decline in performance he never played more than 140 games in a season. He changed teams again in 1988, spending a season with the Detroit Tigers, which acquired him on the day of the trading deadline. This trade caused a controversy since Fred didn’t arrive in Detroit before the deadline passed, which made ineligible for the postseason.
