    The Los Angeles Angels acquired right-hander Lucas Giolito and right-handed reliever Reynaldo Lopez from the Chicago White Sox for two top prospects late Wednesday, bolstering their roster on the same day they decided they would not trade star Shohei Ohtani before he hits free agency this winter.
    The move for Giolito, arguably the best pitcher on the trade market, and Lopez, whose fastball regularly hits 100 mph, was the first significant trade in Major League Baseball before Tuesday's deadline. Multiple contenders had considered dealing for Giolito and Lopez, but the Angels swooped in with catcher Edgar Quero and left-hander Ky Bush, both at Double-A, to reinforce themselves for a playoff run.

    Giolito is a quality arm, a change away from Chicago is just what he needs.
    About time Angels addressed the pitching problem.

    Still doesn’t change the fact they won’t get out of the first round

    Only if they play somebody like the probable AL Central champ Twins they won't.

    As a matter of fact both Central teams, Twins, and Brewers are not expected to get out of the first round according to most models.

    Ohtani will test FA no matter where he is in September.

    Ohtani Sushi got it done. I was surprised to see a pitch shut out. That was impressive today. Although Detroit has no bats and a crap team.

    Detroit can be sneaky though.
