Good morning baseball fans!
The Angels will be without Garrett Richards, who is set to undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery:
Arguably the team's ace, Richards had an impressive start to his 2016 campaign. Despite going 1-3 in his six starts, Richards was getting plenty of strikeouts, and not allowing many home runs, though his walk rate climbed a bit. Richards' ERA- suggested he was pitching 36 percent better than the league average. His peripherals agreed, though to a lesser extent, as Richards' FIP- suggested he was pitching 16 percent better than the league average.
Here's a look at international free agents and where they'll sign.
If every team was to make an offer for Mike Trout, it would look something like this.
