    I just don’t see it from the Angels side. Urshela is a 3B only, Rendon out again? Rendon to 1B? What about Walsh? Rendon and Walsh a righty lefty platoon? Rendon or Walsh to DH? What about Ohtani? A Walsh trade? Walsh non tendered? Having Ohtani, Walsh, Rendon & Urshela seems like to many. And the Angels take on another $9m (arb estimate). And with the team ownership in limbo/for sale? Must be another move/trade brewing otherwise it just seems very odd. I think the Twins probably did alright in this deal, saved some money to use on other needs (Correa) and have Miranda for 3B.

      Do you expect Rendon to play 162 games next year? He hasn’t played more than 60 since he got to LA.
      This is a good pickup for LA, they need depth. And the contract isn’t out of line. A few years ago, Marwin Gonzalez got a 2 year 20 mil contract as a super sub that plays multiple positions.

    In a MLBTR write up of the trade they state that the Angels would/could probably play Urshela at SS. If Urshela was able to play even a league average defensive SS and continue to hit as he has I think it would be a big boost to his value entering his free agent year even at age 31.

      Urshela has played roughly 42 games at SS. (I checked his Baseball Reference page.) If using a 3B at SS didn’t work out for the Yankees (one of the guys they got for Gio), then why will it work out for the Angels?

      I know…Bogaerts and Ripken.

    The Kyle Farmer trade makes this trade make sense for the Twins. If you’re an Angels fan Farmer seems like a better fit then Urshela.

    I honestly thought the twins could get a little better return, especially considering the 3B market was so thin.
