Angels Add Cahill To Rotation
Cahill, 30, spent last season in Oakland with the A’s, starting twenty games and becoming an anchor for a 97 win rotation in a post-season stretch. Cahill went 7-3 with a 3.76 ERA over the aforementioned twenty starts. His best stretch came in May when he threw twenty-six innings to a 1.73 ERA.
Nationals Sign Sanchez To Two-Year Deal
Sanchez saw a career revival last season, going 7-6 with a 2.83 ERA over 24 starts for the Braves and was a pivotal piece to their rotation. This all came after posting a 5.67 ERA from 2015-2017 after joining the Braves on a minor league deal in the post-2017 off-season.
Mariners Interested In Japanese Ace
The Mariners are always active in the Japanese Free-Agent Market, so this rumor should come as surprise to no one. The Mariners were connected to Shohei Othani last off-season, and could very much so use some rotation help after dealing James Paxton to the Yankees over a month ago.
Brewers, A’s Add Piece
Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Brewers have signed the versatile Cory Spangenberg to a one-year deal. He hit .258/.318/.391 in five season with the San Diego Padres. Brewers needed depth after non-tendering Jonathan Schoop (went on to sign with Twins).
According to Rosenthal, the A’s are closing in on a deal for right-handed reliever Joakim Soria. The 34-year-old had a 3.12 ERA and 75 strikeouts in 60.2 innings in 2018 between the White Sox and Brewers.
