As many of you probably know, Mike Trout was arsed into being Commissioner of a fantasy football league for major league baseball players. Tommy Pham is busy making Commissioner Trout even more miserable about it. Kenny Rosenberg is back in a move calculated to provide some left handed long relief to the Angels bullpen. Sam Bachman is dealing with back spasms. Perry Minasian does not believe in magic bullets. It is all about the clubhouse chemistry. Well, he acknowledges the value of analytics. He just wants the right mix and fit.
The Brewers selected former Angels farm hand Jason Alexander and gave him a start against the Cubs. Jean Segura fractured his finger and will almost certainly end up on the injured list. He is having surgery and will miss 10 to 12 weeks.
Left hander Dallas Keuchel cleared waivers and is now a free agent who could be signed for as little as the pro-rated league minimum. Drew Smyly is on the 15 day IL due to an oblique strain. The Nationals are not trading Juan Soto. So says Nationals GM Mike Rizzo.
