Angels acquire Johnny Giavotella


Recommended Posts

So I guess "finding the clean peanut" is Jerry's plan for 2nd base in 2015.

This guy is terrible btw.


His Minor League numbers are strong actually he just hasn't carried it over to the Majors obviously. Good consistent OBP in the Minors too.


Just another contestant to win the 2nd base job, if, the price is right (which it was for another reliever).

there's a difference between milb and mlb, that some guys can't transition to, all fans are well versed in this aspect of professional baseball. however, i have watched giavotella play in omaha when he was a major part of that royal youth movement, and he was a tremendously good player. i really liked him a lot, actually. 


i saw that he was dfa'd last night and i thought that would be a good get for the angels. i'm glad that we signed him, he will most likely eventually accept a AAA assignment in spring training, but if he turns that corner, then he'll be a good player for the angels with talent.


these are the kinds of guys that you want with signings like this.

Another possibility is that Giovotella could be moved to 3rd base if Freese is traded. His slightly below average defense might actually improve if he moved there. This actually might be the real reason he was picked up as a depth move for 3B.


He played 57 games at 3B over the last two years.


In fact Steamer/600 has him at 2.1 WAR at 2nd base in 2015. Interesting.
