Angels Acquire Yunel Escrobar from Nationals
The Angels send Trevor Gott and a minor leaguer to the Nationals, as reported by Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.
Yet another surprise with this move, as Gott was a solid young arm out of the bullpen for the Angels in 2015 with a 3.02 era. A lot to give up for -11 defensive runs saved, but perhaps Escrobar’s offensive ability is worth it.

Escrobar was great offensively last year for the nationals. He hit .314 with a .375 on-base-percentage. Defensively, however, he was aweful with -11 defensive runs saved. Given the fact that he is a defensive liability, This move is a bit of a surprise from Billy Eppler. Especially if they plan to play him every day at either second or third base.
