Raisel Iglesias is rejecting his Qualifying Offer. I guess the Angels might gain a pick to make up for the one they lost over Syndergaard.

Mike Trout follows more than just the weather. Congratulations to this week’s top hitter in the AFL, Buddy Kennedy, who is also from Millville, NJ. Get a load of Trout’s offseason hairdo.
To nobody’s surprise, the Angels designated Junior Guerra for assignment to make room for Noah Syndergaard on the 40 man roster. Meanwhile, Noah Syndergaard passed his physical. There’s no going back now. Charge!

Billy Eppler’s new contract will apparently be for four years. Details are still being finalized as of the time of this writing.
