Rockies trade Mike Moustakas to Angels for minor league pitcher

Following a brutal 25-1 loss on Saturday, the Colorado Rockies announced they have traded Mike Moustakas to the Los Angeles Angels for minor league pitcher Connor Van Scoyoc. The deal was first reported by Michael Marino of FanTrax with Robert Murray of FanSided also reporting the same details.

Moustakas, 34, joined the Rockies in spring training following Brendan Rodgers’ shoulder injury and after he had been designated for assignment by the Cincinnati Reds in January. After making the Opening Day roster, Moustakas played 47 games in purple, batting .270/.360/.435 with four home runs and 17 RBI across 136 plate appearances. Additionally, he showed improved vision at the plate, drawing 17 walks to 34 strikeouts, and ended up posting a 107 OPS+ as well as a career-low 25% ground ball rate.
