Bleacher Report thinks the Angels are a good fit in a trade for Blake Snell. The return package they suggest includes Jo Adell, Jeremiah Jackson and William Holmes. Hey everybody! Jaime Barria is our most promising building block. That is, as long as he doesn’t pitch like it’s 2019.
Who Is Available?
Hunter Renfroe cleared waivers because nobody thought he was worth $3.5 million in arbitration. He is now a free agent that the Angels could try to pick up on the cheap. He’s a right fielder with some pop, but a pretty crappy on base percentage. The Rangers are in line in front of us for waiver claims or we might have ended up with Aramis Garcia as a catcher. Thomas Eshelman is dangling out there ready to be traded, waived, or released. He is that extreme control pitcher I discussed in my article about grabbing pitchers in the Rule 5 Draft on that other site a couple of years ago. He coughs up a lot of home runs so he is not the top of the rotation guy we are all hoping for. The Diamondbacks released Junior Guerra, who does not have much control. Robert Stock, who also lacks control, is designated for assignment. Tomoyuki Sugano will indeed be posted. He’s another right handed starting pitcher to add into the mix.
