Braves sign Sandy Leon to a minor league deal. Crazy how long he's hung around the league.

Joe Ross made his first appearance tonight in the majors since 2021. He started for the Brewers and went 3.2 IP with 2 H, 5BB, 3Ks, and 0 runs. :clap:

I'm watching the game. When he came up for his 3rd at-bat he was getting booed big time. He walked. His next time up he hit a dribbler to short and beat it out for an infield hit, his first. Next time grounded out to third and was being booed as he went to the dugout.

He's never played in more than 58 games in one season for the Angels and is already at 6.  Have to think some kind of groin or toe injury will be on its way soon that will allow him to kick back at home rather than force him to earn his salary.

Yes, it's a consideration by Bobby Jim Bowden, but...

8. The Angels should release third baseman Anthony Rendon.

ON POINT

Rendon helped lead the Nationals to a World Series title in 2019 when he hit 34 home runs and led the majors in RBIs with 126. He left for the Angels in free agency during that offseason, landing a seven-year, $245 million contract that has become a disaster. In five seasons with the Angels, he’s never hit 10 home runs, had 35 RBIs or even played 60 games in a single season. To top it off, he said this after reporting to camp this spring: “(Baseball) has never been a top priority for me. This is a job. I do this to make a living.” That mindset is one of the reasons the Nationals decided not to re-sign him after winning it all.

Rendon has dealt with injuries, and you never want to see that for any player. He will turn 34 in June and along with his frequent injuries, it’s evident that his decline is here to stay. The Angels have signed him through 2026 but continuing to try to salvage this huge free-agent misstep just doubles down on the original mistake. They should just release him and move on. By the way, he’s 3-for-32 to start the season.

That would play in this rotation.
