Target(s) for the Rule 5 Draft? Sam McWilliams?


Recommended Posts

With three open roster spots on the 40-man, seems like the Angels are well-positioned to go after (and commit to) a player or two via the Rule 5 draft this morning.  We'd have to commit to keeping them on the 40-man for the season, but some teams have done very well with 40-man draft acquisitions (Josh Fields, Delino Deshields, heck even Justin Bour being notable examples).  I just happened to get to see Sam McWilliams throw six shutout innings this past season in AA and he was pretty impressive.  Very tall and lanky, reminded me of Jared Weaver.  Doubt he'd fall to us but he could be viable.  2.84 ERA/ 3.30 FIP in 2017, though he took a step back last year due to a couple of clunker starts (still had a 4.04 xFIP, FWIW).
