Welcome to the Angels Patrick Sandoval. Tommy John Surgery this way.

There's a lot of buzz here about Sandoval, but what about the other guy they got, International Money? He has a cool name. Is he a rapper or something?

Unlike Valbuena who is a offense first player with no offense.

HELIUM

Patrick Sandoval, LHP, Astros
An 11th-round pick from Mission Viejo (Calif.) HS in 2015, Sandoval delivered one of the year’s most remarkable streaks. Beginning May 29, Sandoval pitched 42 consecutive innings without allowing an earned run for low Class A Quad Cities and high Class A Buies Creek. The 6-foot-3 lefty’s streak encompassed eight straight starts and came to an end on July 16. Overall, Sandoval is 9-1, 2.56 in what has been a breakthrough season. His fastball ranges from 88-94 mph, and his changeup is an advanced offering that draws swings and misses and earns plus grades from evaluators. He also has a big mid-70s curveball that’s above-average when he nails it, and a short, tight slider in the low 80s that also flashes average to above-average potential. With an out-pitch changeup, two potential above-average breaking balls and a fastball he can ramp up and down, Sandoval has put himself on the prospect map with both his stuff and his streak. (KG)

Now that he's in the Angels farm system he'll never be mentioned again.

Pretty good return for just a defensive first catcher with no offense.

Sandoval kinda sounds like a Hector Santiago type.

$250k is a good lump sum too. Good trade! Let's see who's next 

I like it...now let’s clean out the pen...and Kinsler....maybe even Valbuena....

Gonna miss Maldy even though I like this deal.  We need a C who can hit because there aren't that many other positions with an opportunity to upgrade the lineup.  

Sandoval had a 41ip scoreless streak this year.  17 of the 25 ER he's given up have come in relief.  As a starter this year he has a 1.06 era in 68.0 ip with 13bb/79k.  

nice pickup.
