Angels acquire Gio Urshela from the Twins for Alejandro Hidalgo (DFA Diaz)

Not bad.  MLB Trade Rumors has him estimated at $9.2M in arb this year, which I assume is why the Twins traded him.  He's definitely a good addition to "raise the floor," as we keep mentioning on here.  At that salary, I imagine they're envisioning him as more than a bench player.  He's primarily a 3B, though he's played some at SS.

My guess is insurance for Rendon so they aren't playing someone like Duffy...

Rendon on the move? Would open up a shit ton of money to go out and get 1 of the SS. 

As I mentioned, though, he's probably going to be making ~$9M in 2023, so I imagine they're looking at him as something more than just insurance for Rendon.

well then it sounds like its either a precursor to another trade of a current player or they are willing to raise the payroll enough to fill more holes. I doubt hes being brought in to play SS.
