Noah Syndergaard is heading to the Phillies despite what news outlets said just an hour ago. He will be with Marsh again.
This is a significant trade as it jettisons a rental for something. Mickey is an outfielder, so it now obvious who will be playing the OF now that Marsh is gone. Hopefully he can take on CF.
The other prospect is Jadiel Sanchez.
Sanchez is another OF, and one that is far younger than Mickey. Maybe HE is the CF of the future.
The trade deadline is now passed, but some more trades may be announced shortly as they are finalized. Altogether, if we see this as a 2 for 3, it is much easier to swallow, even though Marsh was my 3rd favorite current Angel.
However, considering Mickey’s not so stellar MLB performance, this may go down as one of the worst trade deadlines in recent years for the Angels.
Only time will tell.
