The Los Angeles Angels have acquired pitcher Dylan Bundy in a trade. In exchange, four minor league players went back to the Baltimore Orioles.
Those players include Isaac Mattson, Zach Peek, Kyle Bradish, and Kyle Brnovich.
“One of the things we talked about with our players is being available and productive,” Angels general manager Billy Eppler said. “In Dylan’s case, he’s shown a good amount of durability the last few years. He’s averaged around the 168-inning mark, which is important for us. He’s developed a good amount of feel in the eyes of our evaluators. We were glad to get this accomplished before we head into the Winter Meetings.”
“I would say in Dylan’s case he’s pitching in a ballpark that’s pretty hitter-friendly and against some notable lineups regularly,” Eppler said. “There could be just from an environmental perspective that could lend to increased optimism. By and large, this is a guy that can miss bats and has showed an improved ability to keep the ball on the ground and throw strikes.”
“I’m glad there has been a lot of activity and conversations recently with pitchers out in the marketplace,” Eppler said. “Every starter, or at least a large portion of them in the market, we’ve talked to.”
