So the mediocre Angels who may squeak into playoffs as a second wild card may trade for a player that could opt out once the season ends. Depending on what they give up this is a really dumb idea for them.

Don't expect much in return other than this just clearing the books.

Still fine by me. Upton had a hell of a year but he is way too streaky for my tastes. The first half of 2016 is one of the single worst slumps I've ever seen.

We got the Angels 11th ranked prospect in return, not sure if more. Angels had a very bad farm system. Basically getting nothing, but shedding salary.

Grayson Long in return. Not bad, 23yo RHP. 3rd round pick in 2015 out of Texas AM. AA this year 2.52 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 121 IP, 111/38 K/BB

JV, Greene, and Alex Wilson are all in play today according to Rosenthal.

JV, Green, Alex Wilson all on the block per Morosi. Also..

"Tigers*in active discussions on Justin Verlander trade possibility. They are making clear to teams that this is a rebuild"
