  • Angels signed Justin Bour to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.
    Advice: The deal was leaked on Wednesday and it is now official. Bour will see action at both first base and designated hitter, sharing time with Albert Pujols and Shohei Ohtani. He was non-tendered by the Phillies in late November after batting .227/.341/.404 with 20 home runs and 59 RBI in 423 at-bats with the Marlins and Phillies this past season. Those numbers were a disappointment considering he had slashed .289/.366/.536 with a whopping 25 homers and 83 RBI in just 377 at-bats the year before. The 30-year-old could provide a lot of value on a bargain contract for the Angels next year if he has a bounce-back campaign.
  • Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that free agent Justin Bour has agreed to a deal with the Angels.
    Advice: It'll be a one-year, $2.5 million deal, per Joel Sherman of the New York Post. Bour was non-tendered by the Phillies last month after batting .227/.341/.404 with 20 home runs and 59 RBI over 141 games between Miami and Philadelphia in 2018. The 30-year-old slugger will presumably get regular playing time between first base and DH next season in Anaheim, but Albert Pujols and Shohei Ohtani are also part of that equation. Granted, Pujols and Ohtani are both coming off major surgeries.
