“No comment . . . and make sure you write that it is a no comment with a headshake from side to side.”
— White Sox’ GM Kenny Williams when asked how he felt about Ozzie Guillen having a Twitter account.
In other Ozzie Guillen Twitter news, we’re told that the account is not actually being handled by Ozzie. Rather, his sons Ozzie Jr. and Oney are writing it. Which on the one hand is kind of sad news to learn. On the other hand, the most popular Twitter account around is one in which a guy just relays the crazy stuff his dad says, so this might work out just fine.
The Yankees announced on Wednesday that the club traded outfielder Jabari Blash to the Angels in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Blash, 28, was acquired by the Yankees from the Padres back in December in the Chase Headley trade. In trading Blash to the Angels, the Yankees were able to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Brandon Drury, the infielder they acquired as part of a three-team trade with the Diamondbacks and Rays on Tuesday.
Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Blash has hit an underwhelming .200/.323/.336 in 279 plate appearances. He will try to play his way into a bench role for the Angels this spring.
