Angels acquire Dominic Leone for Jeremiah Jackson (move Bachman to 60 day IL)

I'm really not sure why. Dominic Leone is not a good pitcher. 

Looks like he had a fairly solid July.  Denno if he figured out anything or improved somehow, as I don't know much about him, but that's the first thing that stands out as I look at his splits.

Now I’m thinking what a package of bush, Quero, Jackson, Albright could have brought back. 

The rest of the trades were fine but I don’t agree with this at all. 

Yeah, I'm not sure this trade was particularly necessary, but I'm interested to see what Perry saw in Leone.  I don't know too much about him, so I'll have to see what some of the reports indicate he can do.

Dominic Leone is a journeyman that wears down easily and is a choke artist with the game on the line. Jeremiah Jackson is going to be a utility infielder with speed and power, but not enough bat. 

It's not enough to be irate over, but it's dumb and unnecessary.

Don't forget Coleman Crow and Landon Marceaux for Escobar. On value for value basis, that might be the worst one.

According to our very own Angelswin pre-season rankings, DiMinasian has traded away our #4, 5, 13, 14, 16, 18 prospects...six of the top 20. With O'Hoppe, Neto and Silseth graduated--not to mention Bachman and Joyce--that's probably four of the top 10.

FIP of 5.26 this year, yikes 

At this time of year, I'd say look at the monthly splits to see if the trend is positive:




Not great, but it looks like he is showing some improvement and his K/9 jumped up in July - perhaps a sign of improvement?
