Our hopes for a quality infielder are fulfilled. Gio Urshela is fresh off a 3.1 bWAR season and has an OPS+ of 121 or better in 3 of the last 4 seasons.
Heading back to the Twins is Alejandro Hildago.
To say I’m thrilled is an understatement. Stay tuned for more details as they emerge.
Urshela is projected to make $9.2 million as an arbitration eligible player by MLBTR. He is under club control for two full seasons, giving Livan Soto and Zach Neto plenty of time to fully develop.
As currently constructed, the Angels now have three infielders capable of playing multiple positions in Urshela, David Fletcher, and Luis Rengifo. Anthony Rendon is penciled in at third base with Jared Walsh at first.
