Photo of the Day: Watch out for bad hops

Earlier this morning we passed along word that Citi Field has the best infield dirt in all of baseball.  I’m no grounds keeping expert, but I can’t help but think that the infield here at Camelback Ranch may not play quite as true:

I mean, really, there are gonna be some bad bounces out there!  If only there was something we could do to fix it!

Ah. Should have known. Baseball zamboni.  Works every time.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Angels have signed 1B/DH Justin Bour to a contract, pending a physical. The Phillies non-tendered Bour last month.

Bour, 30, spent the 2018 season with the Marlins and Phillies, hitting an aggregate .227/.341/.404 with 20 home runs and 59 RBI in 501 plate appearances.

Bour will likely share first base with Albert Pujols, who is coming off of knee and elbow surgeries. Bour could handle right-handers while the 38-year-old Pujols faces lefties.
