The Angels got a new pitcher in the system but this guy is still pretty far from the show.
We have a new Assistant Director of Player Development. At the moment, I’m not sure what to make of this.
All right everyone. Would you trade a package of Angels (mostly pitching) prospects to Colorado for Kyle Freeland, who is basically a back end starter?
The Mets are looking for a new President of Baseball Operations. I wonder what will be wrong with their hire this time.
The Cubs will hire Carter Hawkins, formerly with Cleveland, as their new General Manager.
These are all the managerial rumors currently outstanding. I don’t see anything about Mike Scioscia or Brad Ausmus.
Andrew Heaney elected free agency instead of accepting his outright assignment from the Yankees. He probably needs to go to a nice spacious ballpark instead of a bandbox. I doubt if that latter statement is news to anybody around here.
Yesterday was opening day for the Arizona Fall League. The championship game will be November 20, 2021.
