BFD.... Check out these Cam Bedrosian highlights...                      

6'10"? That's like three Nates.

Any time you can work “flummoxed” and his nickname “The Slegend” into an article, even AW can smile...

A pretty good read on how important Slegers was in the Rays series win over the Astros in the ALCS

It sounds like he would have been a lot more valuable (even though Rays fans love him) if not for how stacked their bullpen was.

@Erstad Gritin videos I've seen he's sitting low 90's with a slider at 86 as well.

I'm confused. He's called "soft tossing" by MLB rumors but  has a 87mph change-up? Usually soft tossers fastballs sit around 88. 

Noticed that too.  Looking at Fangraphs velo chart, his FB is right around 91-93.

MLBTR is run by a bunch of 16 year olds who have only been watching baseball for a few years and think 91-93 is soft.

get the feeling that Minasian is in 'tidy up' mode.  Ohtani extension, this guy.  My guess is well see a couple more minor league moves.  

Bundy extension coming soon?  

This is a little more then tidy up mode. This guy is gonna really give our bullpen some much needed depth.

 

This might be the best signing of the offseason so far.

Small sample size, I don't see much downside to this move.  If he ends up sucking, release him, but he'll probably be a solid piece.  I don't know why the Rays traded him.

Before last year, he had unremarkable numbers in the minors and his brief stints in the majors. They may just not have really seen a spot for him this year and questioned if he'd be able to replicate his 2020. But, yeah, not much downside for the Angels.
