The Los Angeles Angels acquired pitcher Aaron Slegers from the Tampa Bay Rays for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

What does it give the Los Angeles Angels
In Slegers, the Angels get a decent right-handed reliever who has a chance to see regular action out of the LA bullpen in 2021. He will likely start out in middle relief.

What does it give the Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays needed a 40-man roster spot in order to make the Chris Archer signing official, so they decided to sacrifice Slegers here. They will not likely receive much in return.

Fantasy impact
The fantasy impact here should be minimal. Slegers should not be drafted in virtually all league formats. At best, he might become an in-season reliever option in some deeper leagues.
