Shohei Ohtani has displayed "great range of motion" in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, Angels GM Billy Eppler said. I asked Eppler if it was possible for Ohtani to get 500 to 600 plate appearances next season. "Too early to tell," he said. "We don't even have a hitting progression today. We won't be able to put that together until his late January assessment. And then we can start putting some pen to paper and write out his first marker."

Angels GM Billy Eppler, looking for lots of pitching and a starting catcher, said he was a little bit more active on the trade market than the free-agent market today. The Angels reportedly fell short on Patrick Corbin and Nathan Eovaldi, which at least shows they have been active. Eppler said he has deals in place that he could make. "We could kick a field goal if we wanted to, but let's go for a touchdown."

The Mariners announced Kaleb Cowart as an infielder and a pitcher. Looks like they're going to try him as a two-way player. Cowart was a really good pitcher in high school and has always had a big arm.

Mariners GM Jerry Dipoto really has a knack for acquiring former players. Today, he claimed Kaleb Cowart off waivers from the Angels, the team that made him the 18th pick in 2010. Cowart has evolved into a switch-hitting utility guy who can play 3B, 1B, 2B and LF.

New Rangers manager Chris Woodward will now have to face Shohei Ohtani often. He knew he could pitch, but didn't think he would become such a good hitter. "I wasn't convinced to start the year," Woodward said. "He proved me and a lot of people wrong."

Tommy La Stella slugged only .331 last year, but he got on base 34 percent of the time and is a left-handed bat with flexibility at 3B and 2B. He can compete for an everyday role with the Angels at either spot, depending on which one Zack Cozart plays. The others in the mix — Taylor Ward, David Fletcher and Luis Rengifo — are young and unproven.
