Happy birthday Max Stassi! The Angels are among the 14 teams who may end up having their games broadcast by MLB due to the infamous bankruptcy filing of Diamond Sports Group. The Angels only came in tenth on this list of the most valuable MLB teams. I wonder what Arte thinks of that. “Number 10” used to be Viet Nam slang for the worst.
The Twins hired Hernan Perez on a minor league deal. The Marlins selected Garrett Hampson and placed Anthony Bender on the 60 day IL in a corresponding move. The Rays selected Trevor Kelley and placed Andrew Kittredge on the 60 day IL in a corresponding move.
Angel Zerpa of the Royals went on the 60 IL with a left shoulder tendinopathy. Sam Coonrod has a high grade lat strain and they don’t know exactly when he will be back. Freddie Freeman has “a mild hamstring issue” and exited the World Baseball classic.
