Good morning Angels fans, how are you today? Have some links anyway.
It is the first multi year deal for a free agent SP for the Angels since 2012. Remember Joe Blanton?
This does mean some 40 man roster shuffling, however. Ingram and Soriano are now on the 40 man roster while Toussaint, Zastryzny, and Walters have been DFA-ed.
Angel Stadium will be reevaluated again. Hope the new owner will keep the team in Anaheim.
Rizzo will stay a Yankee. Wasn’t he bad for them?
Qualifying offers are set in stone now. All rejected except Perez and Joc. So that means Judge, Trea Turner, Bogaerts, deGrom, Swanson, Rodon, Nimmo, Contreras, Bassitt, Eovaldi, and Tyler Anderson will all cost a draft pick to sign. Of course, that is if they do not stay with their own team anyway, like Rizzo.
Managers of the year were announced today. Terry Francona won in the AL.
And in the NL, it is Buck, his 4th team he has won with and first as an NL manager.
It is DFA day and a lot of interesting players are now Free Agents. Who do you like?
Rockies and Cleveland swap prospects. That is rare.
