Five of the six players added to the Orioles’ 40-man roster were known to the team’s most avid fans. The sixth, through no fault of his own, is a bit of a mystery. Isaac Mattson was one of four right-handed pitchers acquired from the Los Angeles Angels in the trade for Dylan Bundy last December, […]

Examining a Blake Snell to the Mariners trade

It’s been a quiet off-season so far, but the stove threatens to erupt in flames if one is to believe Mark Feinsand’s report on MLB.com that the Rays are open to trading Blake Snell. Further increasing the potential heat here in our cold little faraway corner, per Feinsand’s report, two teams interested in the former Cy Young winner are the Angels and our very own Mariners. Snell, a Seattle-area native, would probably love to come home to the team he rooted for while growing up in...

2020 review: Brian Goodwin

Photo by Lindsey Wasson/ He was traded to the Reds at the trade deadline Brian Goodwin spent the first half of the season with the Angels, but was dealt to the Cincinnati Reds at the trade deadline. With the Angels falling out of playoff contention, it was one of a handful of moves they made. Goodwin was one of the best hitters for the Angels through the first portion of the season. Through his first 21 games, Goodwin was hitting .303 with an OPS of .984, one of the highest in the American League among outfielders. His final nine games with LA were really a struggle, as he barely hit...

2020 review: Anthony Rendon

Photo by Jayne Kamin-Oncea/ His first season with the Angels was a good one Last offseason, the Angels made a big-time splash, as they signed free-agent third baseman Anthony Rendon to a seven-year deal worth nearly a quarter of a billion dollars. His start with the Angels got off to a rough start, as he missed the first few games with an injury. The first few weeks he played weren’t pleasant either, as he was hitting .103 through the first 12 games he played. After that rough stretch, he turned things around and went back to being the hitter that earned him that big contract. Over...

KC Royals: Making the case, Angels and Orioles free agents

Do the Los Angeles Angels or Baltimore Orioles have free agents who can help the KC Royals? Bad teams are bad for different, but limited, reasons. They usually just have bad players, or not enough good ones, which also means such clubs typically don’t produce great free agents every offseason.

2020 review: Cam Bedrosian

Photo by John McCoy/ Former first-round pick is now a free agent Cam Bedrosian’s seventh year with the Angels was a trying one, missing nearly half the season with an injury. Now, he’s a free agent whose tenure with the team might be over. Nominally, Bedrosian’s numbers when he pitched were pretty good. The right-hander had a 2.45 ERA and 2.92 FIP, both the second-best marks of his career, with 11 strikeouts, six walks and no home runs allowed in 14⅔ innings. But he was rarely used in any high-leverage or late-inning situations, failing to climb the depth chart of a bullpen that...
