The Los Angeles Angels made a move! They signed Brandon Drury to a two-year deal. Drury figures to slot in at second base most nights but gives the Angels another versatile weapon and some much-needed depth. The Halos have a bunch of infielders who can move all over the diamond whenever they want to.
The Angels have done a great job adding to a lineup that needed pieces. They have at least seven hitters you can expect 20+ home runs from and have lengthened the lineup very well around Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani. The one issue the Angels have is their lack of a shortstop. Rengifo and Fletcher can play the position, but is that really what we want?
