The Giants and Athletics are scheduled to play an exhibition game this afternoon if the weather cooperates, but O.Co Coliseum is already in midseason form. Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle has the updates from the messy scene in Oakland:
There’s a lot of great things going on in MLB right now, but the Oakland stadium situation continues to be an embarrassment. And there’s no resolution in sight.
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.
