Matt Joyce Update

Recommended Posts

Actually, if there's any injury fudging here, it's more in the interest of the Angels than Joyce to do it.

The Angels are going to pay Joyce his money no matter what.

If he's ready to be active now, they are forced to basically release him or trade him for nothing, watching him play for someone else while they pay him.

If he's not ready till 9/1, they can keep him and use him to pinch hit in September.

I realize not a big deal because it doesn't look like he'd be very effective as a pinch hitter but at least he'd be theoretically contributing to the team that is paying him.

Not like the Angels are strangers to paying a left fielder to go fail for some other team...

An interesting bit of trivia is that Juan Rivera is the only player in MLB history to lose his job to Vernon Wells *twice*, once with the Angels, once with the Yankees
