  • Angels Acquire Guillermo Zuniga From Cardinals

    Headshot for Adam Cimber

    The Los Angeles Angels have acquired relief pitcher Guillermo Zuniga from the St. Louis Cardinals in exchange for cash considerations. Right-handed pitcher Austin Warren has been designated for assignment in order to clear a 40-man roster spot for Zuniga. The Cardinals had designated Zuniga for assignment on Saturday. It was a rough 2023 season for the 25-year-old as he posted a 7.63 ERA in 29 relief outings with Triple-A Memphis while also getting into two games with the Cardinals, allowing one earned run with four strikeouts and zero walks across a pair of innings worked. The Angels have added serious depth to their bullpen this season in Robert Stephenson, Matt Moore, Luis Garcia, and Adam Cimber as Zuniga will have his hands full cracking the Opening Day roster.

  • Angels Designate Alfonso Rivas For Assignment

    Headshot for Alfonso Rivas

    The Los Angeles Angels have designated first baseman/outfielder Alfonso Rivas for assignment. The move was made after the Angels made the signing of reliever Robert Stephenson official on Wednesday. Unfortunately, it's been a busy offseason transaction-wise for Rivas as he was cut loose but the Pirates following the 2023 season before being picked up by the Guardians. He was then designated for assignment by Cleveland and scooped up by the Angels but will now be looking for his next organization. The 27-year-old hit .229 with three home runs and one stolen base across 123 plate appearances between the Padres and Pirates in 2023. He is a lifetime .243 hitter with seven HR and seven SB across 459 trips to the plate, also spending time with the Cubs in the 2021 and 2022 campaigns.

  • Robert Stephenson Agrees To Deal With Angels

    Headshot for Robert Stephenson

    Relief pitcher Robert Stephenson will sign with the Los Angeles Angels, pending a physical. The former first-round pick struck out 77 of the 201 batters he faced in 2023, compiling 52 1/3 innings. Stephenson should work the late innings and closing is a possibility in Los Angeles, even though he has three career saves. After coming to Tampa Bay from Pittsburgh, the 30-year-old posted a 179 ERA+, the highest of his career. He could be a trendy sleeper pick for saves and will likely be owned in most leagues that use saves+holds.

  • Robert Stephenson Drawing Interest From Dodgers, Mets, Phillies

    Headshot for Robert Stephenson

    Free agent reliever Robert Stephenson is receiving interest from the Los Angeles Dodgers and a pair of NL East teams, namely the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies. It has been reported that there are numerous teams with significant interest in the right-hander. A converted starter, Stephenson has found far more success as a reliever and enjoyed a career year in 2023. The 2011 first-round pick worked to a career-best 3.10 ERA and a massive 30.3% K-BB% in 60 appearances split between the Pirates and Rays a season ago. However, he took off upon landing in Tampa Bay as he tossed an eye-popping 1.50 ERA alongside a monstrous 42.9% while holding opposing hitters to a minuscule .114 batting average in the season's second half. A lucrative multi-year deal is well within reach for the 30-year-old.

  • Robert Stephenson Drawing Interest From Baltimore

    Headshot for Robert Stephenson

    Free agent relief pitcher Robert Stephenson is drawing interest from the Baltimore Orioles according to Jon Morosi of MLB Network. Stephenson was excellent in 2023 as a member of the Pirates and the Rays, posting a 3.10 ERA, 0.879 WHIP, and 77:16 K/BB ratio over 52 1/3 innings of relief. With Felix Bautista (elbow) likely on the shelf for all of the 2024 season following his Tommy John surgery, the Orioles need to bolster their bullpen behind Yennier Cano. Morosi noted that Baltimore is starting to show more interest in Stephenson and that the high-leverage reliever market is starting to move fast. The 30-year-old righty should not be a free agent for much longer.
