Mets (thankfully) weren't serious about Jason Marquis, either

A day after Bengie Molina said he felt the Mets weren’t actually interested in him comes this from Adam Rubin of the New York Daily News:

Jason Marquis says he doesn’t know
what Mets offered him, because he told agent to share only “serious”
offers. … Marquis faces Mets Sun.

Gotta find storylines somewhere, I suppose.

Angels acquire Jabari Blash from the Yankees

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.
