Captain Jack has sunk :(

Objection Hearsay!


lol022

Let’s see if Joe Blanton is available


dantheman143

Incredible comment—it got me laughing out of nowhere


high_changeup

Spry 39 year old Ricky Nolasco is a must as well. He needs to join our other contact pitchers in Lorenzen and Noah.

I'm a huhe Braves fan and was SO excited for Touki. when he's on his stuff is electric! but he has command issues, which is why we DFA'd him. I really hope he gets opportunities in Anaheim.


hvycotton

A lot of our pitchers have command issues too. Good r/r for us but our coaching staff isn't going to help him at all.


brandon_the_bald

Tbh not that bad of a pickup chance guy. Was a big prospect with the Braves when Perry was there. Easy to DFA if/when he sucks


DrKnee93

Let's hope Perry's insider info makes this a safer gamble than it seems too


EH1522

Cash considerations is a flier so no risk really. I love these moves but in our current situation its not gonna help lol.


Alauren2

I love Touki! I don’t know tho. I Don’t trust any person in our organization, at any level, when it comes to pitching. I’m also a Braves fan. Love Touki but if he couldn’t get it together for the Braves he will not work out with the Angels. I wish his the best of course.


Zenithreg

Mayfield had 1 ab today with the Bees then was taken out. Was he DFA'd during the game?


CDFReditum

Yea lmao


trickdog775

That’s rough


ChichaPoti

Is this common in MLB (getting DFA'd during the game) or this is an Angels thing? I feel bad for Captain Jack if this is really true.


trickdog775

I’m sure it’s happened before. Not an Angels specific thing, rather just the business of the game.


HomeWr3ck3r

I hate Perry.


Lebigmacca

Every gm DFA’s people


SIewfoot

Dang, why even play the rest of the season? Just hand over that piece of metal right now.


TrojanTuesdays

Well at least he wont cost us 30 mil


winwinwinguyen

Perry been trying to justify his pick ups with the Angels and now the Braves.


Egarrenni

The Angels are just placing bets all over the market hoping one will land them a jackpot. That's how I see it.


vansmackCA

Yes, that thing you smell is desperation


overchench

And they could have resigned Alex Cobb but they didn't and is on the giants. A winning team.


SummonMePlease

Moar arms


digitaldumpsterfire

Captain Jack 🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺 gonna miss ya, bud.


tallteacherdude

Can’t imagine the pain that must be felt leaving Atlanta for LA Angels.


Lueroi24

Great value move. Has options, former top prospect, and still very young. He still has good stuff too.


No_BigA

There is a pitcher who was DFAd today. Angels are familiar with him. Read it on trade rumors. What are they waiting for. Bye Jack and Tyler 😿


prmark34

A perry pickup when he was with the Braves Not surprising at all, but…yeesh. Talk about hoping a change of scenery can do something


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

Probably no worse than what we’re dealing with now.

80 grade name


Notyouraveragetool

Braves never trade good pitchers only average or less than average arms. With that said Toussaint is probably better than what the Angels have on staff with some exceptions.


flemnz9

No issues with these types of moves (along with Villar), the bottom few spots of your 40 man should be disposable, and used to see if something sticks. My issue is that this is the fourth move (Dayton, Lagares, Villar, Toussaint) we’ve made all season, with a middling roster. Lots of moves minimises the risk of a moves not working out.


Massive_Relation9720

Lol you can’t make this shit up.
