Angels Get Reliever Ernesto Frieri From San Diego For Two Minor Leaguers
Mark Saxon of ESPN reports that the Angels have traded minor league INF Alexi Amarista and RHP Donn Roach for Padres RHP reliever Ernesto Frieri. Amarista hit .292/.337/.419 last year with Salt Lake as a 22-year-old, predominantly at second base. Roach had a 2.16 ERA this year with high-A Inland Empire, a 6.3 K/9, and an outstanding 9.67 K/BB ratio. As for Frieri, he had a 2.71 ERA last year in 59 games, all in relief, with a 10.9 K/9 and a 2.24 K/BB ratio. I like this deal for the Angels and the Padres, as the Pads get some kids with good upside, and the Angels get a solid relief man.
