Meanwhile, in A-Rod land:

There’s a book coming out about A-Rod that threatens to totally change the way we think about rich, narcissistic athletes who have trouble relating to normal human beings. And by “change the way we think about” I mean “totally, undeniably confirm the way we think about rich, narcissistic athletes.”

Also: there is an online petition to bring A-Rod justice or something:

Hispanics Across America has launched a petition site aimed at “stopping the injustice” with respect to the 211-game suspension given to New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez … The new site, supportarod13.com, features a petition, an A-Rod photo gallery and a link to donate to HAA.

Thank God. I was about to donate some time to help people who have been truly wronged and subjugated by those in power, but now I can do what I truly want to do deep down and donate money to an organization dedicated to helping out Alex Rodriguez.

The Angels have signed pitcher Matt Harvey to a one-year contract, MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports. Fancred’s Jon Heyman reports that the contract is for $11 million with an additional $3 million available through performance incentives.

Harvey, 29, spent 2018 with the Mets and Reds, posting an aggregate 4.94 ERA with a 131/37 K/BB ratio in 155 innings. He started off poorly with the Mets, so they traded him to the Reds in early May. He pitched much better in Cincinnati.

Harvey should have a spot secured at the back of the Angels’ rotation, but health and performance can always change that leading up to Opening Day.
