Just met Jorge, a great baseball fan, in Starbucks on Collins. He knows his stuff!
Thor’sLinks: MLB DFA’s Congress. On the same day that dozens of MLB players are DFA’d to protect key players, MLB DFA’s Congress in order to protect their MiLB plans. And The Best Damned Daily MLB News Roundup on the Internet calls them out. https://t.co/rl6D4rVjrP
#Angels add Jahmai Jones, Hector Yan to 40-man roster: Jones, an infielder, and Yan, a pitcher, were added to the 40-man roster to protect them from next month's Rule 5 draft. José Rojas, who had a big season at Triple-A, was left exposed. https://t.co/RZBtTC1CZ4
Yan is a 20-year-old from DR who struck out 148 in 109 IP and held hitters to a .190 average at low-A Burlington this past season. Jones is a converted 2B and 2015 second-round pick who struggled in first half this season but bounced back over summer and in AZ Fall League.
The #Angels added Jahmai Jones and Hector Yan to their 40-man roster. They did not add José Rojas. They did not DFA anyone. Their roster is at 40.
