The Athletic: Angels slipped under the luxury tax threshold in 2023


Recommended Posts

"The Angels’ shenanigans worked.

The team’s massive waiver dump on Aug. 31, combined with other roster maneuverings, enabled the club to slip just under the luxury-tax threshold for 2023, according to sources briefed on the final numbers.

As a result, the Angels’ draft-pick compensation if they lose Shohei Ohtani as a free agent will be a selection after the second round, in the range of No. 70 overall. Exceeding the threshold would have pushed the pick back until after the fourth round, in the range of No. 140 overall."

The news reminds me of this tweet.

I’m guessing Dipoto wishes he didn’t make that waiver claim now.

Leone made 10 appearances and had -0.4 fWAR in them.

The M’s missed the playoffs by 1 game.

In one of Leone’s appearances, he gave up two solo HRs and the Mariners ended up losing by 1 run.

I’m guessing Perry wishes he didn’t make all his moves either

"Major League Baseball officials have decided to wait at least another year before considering the implementation of rules that would prevent teams from dumping players into the waiver market late in the season, as the Los Angeles Angels did last August, industry sources told ESPN on Monday."

...

"While baseball executives with other teams understood the strategy -- and some agreed with the Angels' decision to offload as much salary as possible -- there was some queasiness within the industry about this becoming a regular late-season practice for failing teams, with a flood of established players suddenly being given away, sources told ESPN.

The issue was discussed at the GM meetings in November, sources told ESPN, and it was decided then that more data was needed -- at least another season of evidence, to determine whether the Angels' salary dump was precedent for more of the same by other teams, or if the Angels' waiver choices in 2023 were a one-off event.

If there is another wave of financially driven waiver dumps next season, it's possible that regulations to curb that kind of behavior will be discussed next winter."
