      Angels' Ji-Man Choi: Gets selected by Angels

      Choi was selected by the Angels in the major league portion of the Rule 5 draft on Thursday, JJ Cooper of Baseball America reports. Choi has spent six years in the Mariners' minor league system, and in 2015 he played 18 games with Triple-A Tacoma. He batted .298/.403/.421 with 17 hits and 16 RBI's in those 18 games. He hasn't shown a ton of power in his career but he's been an efficient bat a majority of the time. He'll start the 2016 season behind Albert Pujols, CJ Cron, and possibly Efren Navarro.

      Orioles' Ji-Man Choi: Signs minor league deal with Orioles

      Choi signed a minor league contract with the Orioles on Tuesday, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports. The 24-year-old first base prospect washed out of the Mariners system, but the Orioles thought enough of him to extend an invite to spring training. He has always shown a good approach in the minor leagues, but he probably doesn't have quite enough bat to make it as a big league regular at first base.

"They're all tough," manager Lloyd McClendon told MLB.com Tuesday. "Any time you've got to tell a young man that his dream is not going to come to fruition at this particular time, that's tough. They all work hard, they give us all they've got. I was very pleased. Like I told all of them, it wasn't performance based. The numbers are such that we have to start moving guys out, but their performances will not be forgotten, and at some point, they'll be back."
