Darren Oliver: Type A

Believe it or not, Cousin Oliver made the Type A list for free agents. That means if the Angels offer him arbitration, and he declines, and he then goes on to sign as a free agent elsewhere, the Angels get either a First or Second Round draft pick from the team that signs him, plus a Supplemental First Round pick. THAT MEANS WE BEST BE OFFERING D.O. ARBITRATION, AND HOPING HE DECLINES.

 

Dude has been rock solid pitcher for us, and a good teammate to boot, but he was pretty bad from 2000-04, will be 38 years old, and getting two high draft picks for a guy like that is a steal. To give an example, when the Angels signed Type A Orlando Cabrera in 2005, the Red Sox used their two high picks to get Jacoby Ellsbury and Jed Lowrie.

Come to think of it, it would be a nice project to figure out who the Angels got and lost, draft-pick-wise, from the Free Agent market over the years....
