Angels trade Rondon for backup catcher

Rafael Lopez, C

A 16th-round selection by the Cubs in 2011 out of Florida State, Lopez has decidedly not rocketed upwards through the system, making his first appearance in Triple-A just this past season as a 26-year-old. In part, that’s maybe a function of him missing time to injury in 2012. In probably more part, though, it’s a function of having been a 16th-round pick. Nevertheless, as a professional, Lopez has produced encouraging plate-discipline figures, recording walk and strikeout rates of 12.2% and 15.6%, respectively, over the course of his minor-league career while also exhibiting enough power on contact to demand some respect from opposing pitchers. According to McDaniel, his defense is regarded as somewhere in the range of passable to average. In sum, Lopez offers enough to warrant consideration for a back-up role this season.

Stoneman isn't even in Anaheim right now. This is all Servais.

Glad to see the Angels are continuing their decade long trend of having absolutely ZERO international presence by trading away their international bonus slots for low end prospects that serve as minor league depth fodder.

We cant even use them for 2 years because of Baldo. Why not get something for the slot money?

Although our International presence is minimal, in this case Scotty I'm fine with what they did with the pool money. Added three potential depth pieces that were already in the Minor Leagues that can help us in the next 2-4 years.

 

We weren't going to get any big names with a $300,000 cap anyway. While the other teams went right we went left. I'm okay in trying to exploit the inefficiency right now. It's a gamble but it may prove valuable to us.
