Player Notes
Angels acquired LHP Joe Thatcher and OF Tony Campana from the Diamondbacks for OF Zach Borenstein and RHP Joey Krehbiel.

Advice: The veteran southpaw makes for a nice addition to the Angels bullpen which was lacking in quality left-handed arms. He has done a nice job for the D'Backs this season, posting a 2.63 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 25/3 K/BB ratio over his 24 innings of work. Despite adding Thatcher and Jason Grilli this week, the Angels are rumored to still be in the market for further bullpen upgrades.

According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Angels have agreed to a deal to acquire Joe Thatcher and Tony Campana from the Diamondbacks.

Advice: No word yet on the potential return package that the Diamondbacks would be receiving in the trade. There were rumblings late Friday that the Angels were interested in the veteran southpaw, and it appears as though they worked things out quickly. He'll add a much-needed left-handed weapon to manager Mike Scioscia's bullpen.
