Player Notes
Angels acquired OF/DH Matt Joyce from the Rays for RHP Kevin Jepsen.

Advice: Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports first reported the trade. Joyce figures to pair with C.J. Cron at DH and can cover the corner outfield spots when necessary. With Josh Hamilton around, it's a nice insurance move. Joyce batted .254/.349/.383 with nine home runs and 52 RBI over 140 games this past season.

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the Rays continue to discuss Matt Joyce trades with teams.

Advice: ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reported last week that Joyce is drawing more interest than David DeJesus in potential trades and Cotillo writes that a deal may come down in the near future. MLB Trade Rumors projects Joyce to make $4.9 million next season in his final year of arbitration. The 30-year-old could have some value in a platoon role.
