AL Notes: Rangers, Angels, Quatraro

Post by Floyd »

Some notes from the American League:
  • The Rangers reinstated a trio of players from the 60-day injured list this afternoon, per a team announcement. Right-hander José Leclerc and left-handers Brock Burke and Joe Palumbo are all back on the 40-man roster, bringing Texas’ tally to 35. Those three relievers only combined for 4.1 innings in 2020. Leclerc suffered a teres major strain in July, while Burke underwent season-ending shoulder surgery in February. Palumbo, meanwhile, battled a bout of ulcerative colitis.
  • The Angels and assistant general manager Jonathan Strangio are parting ways, reports Fabian Ardaya of the Athletic ([url= link[/url]). The Harvard alum’s contract expired October 31 and was not renewed. There’s been quite a bit of turnover in the Halos’ front office in recent weeks. The club [url=https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2020/09/angels-fire-billy-eppler.html]fired[/url] general manager Billy Eppler, while former advisor Tony La Russa [url=https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2020/10/white-sox-hire-tony-la-russa-manager.html]signed on[/url] as White Sox manager. As Ardaya notes in a follow-up [url=[/url], Strangio had taken on a larger role in day-to-day baseball operations in the wake of Eppler’s firing. He informed the organization in August he’d be leaving at the end of the season for family reasons, Ardaya [url=[/url].
  • Before [url=https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2020/10/tigers-set-to-officially-name-a-j-hinch-manager.html]deciding on[/url] A.J. Hinch, the Tigers interviewed Rays bench coach Matt Quatraro in their managerial search, [url=https://www.tampabay.com/sports/rays/2020/11/01/rays-quickly-turn-attention-to-uncertainty-of-2021/]reports Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times[/url]. Quatraro also drew some consideration from the Pirates and Giants for their respective vacancies last offseason. The 46-year-old has been on Kevin Cash’s coaching staff since the start of the 2018 season.
