The Angels have signed right handed pitcher Matt Harvey to a one year $11MM contract and can earn an additional $3MM worth if incentives.
Harvey was originally drafted by Anaheim in the third round of the 2007 MLB June Amateur Draft. He has been struggling to stay healthy for his whole career, only pitching 767.1 innings since 2012.
The Dark Knight was dominant on the 2013/2015 season posting a combined 367.2 innings pitched with a 2.50 ERA, 0.705 WHIP, 9.3 SO9, 1.7 BB9, 5.57 SO/BB, 7.1 H9, 0.6 HR9
have been previously linked to Harvey.
The Cubs have agreed to sign infielder Daniel Descalso to a two year $5MM contract with a club option for 2021 that'll be worth $3.5MM and a $1MM buyout
In 2,699 plate appearances, Descalso has a .240/.324/.370 slashline with a 10.4 BB%, 20.1 SO%, 0.52 BB/SO, .131 ISO, .291 BABIP, .303 wOBA and 85 wRC+
have been previously linked to Descalso as a possible temporary starter for third base.
Here lies Fred Sanford, an early victim of the New York media and the pressure placed on Yankees players. Sanford pitched for the St. Louis Browns (1943, 1947-48, 1951), New York Yankees (1949-51) & Washington Senators (1951).
Sanford broke into pro ball in 1938. He made it to the majors briefly with the Browns in 1943, working 9-1/3 innings in 3 games for a 1.93 ERA. He lost 2 years to the Army during World War II and rejoined baseball in 1946, winning 15 games for the Toledo Mud Hens. The Browns brought him back to the majors, and he responded with shutouts in his first two starts against the Yankees and White Sox. He finished with a 2-1 record and 2.05 ERA and a bright future with the Browns as a major-leaguer.
Well, “bright future” was a relative term with the awful Browns. Anyone who pitched for them was pretty much guaranteed a losing record no matter how good they were. Sanford went 7-16 with a 3.71 ERA in 34 games in 1947. He led the AL in losses in 1948 with 21. Still, there was something about Sanford that appealed to the Yankees. They acquired him and catcher Roy Partee in December 1948, in exchange for 3 players and $100,000.
Sanford, supposed to be a solid starter with the Yankees, never stuck in the rotation. His results weren’t awful, but they weren’t excellent either. He had a 7-3 record but a 3.87 ERA and 1.647 WHIP in 1949. He walked (57) more batters than he struck out (51). Matters didn’t improve in 1950, when he started 12 games and relieved 12 games, walking 79 batters in 112-2/3 innings. In both seasons, the Yankees won the World Series, but Sanford didn’t make the postseason roster.
The New York papers called Sanford the “$100,000 lemon” and ripped every poor performance. He struggled under the pressure, losing the confidence of manager Casey Stengel.
Sanford was traded twice in 1951, from the Yankees to the Senators to the Browns, and ended with a combined 4-10 record and 6.82 ERA. For his 7 seasons in the majors, Sanford had a 37-55 record and 4.45 ERA.
Sanford was a deputy sheriff and criminal investigator after baseball, and he also worked for a company that made explosives for the military. He died on March 15, 2011 at the age of 91.
