At Last, The Angels Will Have A First-Round Compensation Pick
The Angels are now in line to receive the Mets' first-round pick plus a compensatory pick after the first round, which will help them restock a farm system that has thinned out over the past few years. (If the Mets sign Lowe, the Angels will still receive the Mets' first-round pick and the Dodgers will receive the Mets' second-round pick.) The Angels could slide Jose Arredondo into the closer role and continue to let Scot Shields set up, and they might be a fit for a free-agent reliever who could fill the spot Arredondo would vacate.It's about time. The Angels have given away far too many first-round picks lately, and gotten not a whole lot in exchange. Gary Matthews, Jr.? Well, how's Michael Main doing these days?
