The Angels’ Rough Week and The Yankees’ Callups
DVR and Al discuss the fallout from Shohei Ohtani’s torn UCL and Mike Trout’s return to the IL, and they also look into the fantasy appeal of several recently-promoted players, including Oswald Peraza, Everson Pereira, Wilyer Abreu and Korey Lee. On the pitching side, DVR and Al consider the types of leagues that Cole Ragans and Ryan Pepiot should be added to, and they talk about the potential for saves in the Athletics’ bullpen.
