    • Andriese is a strong candidate to open the season in the Angels' roatation, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Andriese was already being looked at as a starter before it was revealed that Griffin Canning (elbow) would likely begin the season on the injured list. That opens the No. 4 spot in the rotation, which is likely to go to Andriese in light of his solid spring (one earned run and six strikeouts in nine innings). Though the right-hander has been a starter for much of his career, 90 of his last 95 appearances have come out of the bullpen.

    • Andriese will come to camp as a starting pitcher following his trade to the Angels on Tuesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. The 30-year-old owns a career 4.64 ERA in 49 starts. In 2019 for the Diamondbacks, his first season spent entirely in the bullpen, he posted a mediocre 4.71 ERA. Moving to the rotation would give him a better shot at fantasy relevance than a middle-relief role would, though the fact that he'll enter camp as a starter doesn't guarantee that he'll enter the regular season as one.

    • Andriese was traded from the Diamondbacks to the Angels on Tuesday in exchange for Jeremy Beasley, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports. Andriese appeared in 54 games for the Diamondbacks last year as he operated out of the bullpen for the full season. The right-hander recorded a 4.71 ERA with a 79:27 K:BB over 70.2 innings while working mainly lower-leverage situations. The Angels' bullpen lacks experience, so it's possible Andriese could receive some consideration in more high-leverage situations if he can continue to develop. He also may be in line for a back-end starter's job.

    • Andriese avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1,395,000 deal with Arizona on Friday, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports. Andriese served as a full-time reliever for the first time last season, posting an unimpressive 4.71 ERA in 70.2 innings. He did at least post career highs in strikeout rate (25.5 percent) and groundball rate (50.3 percent), but he's unlikely to pitch in a fantasy-relevant role this season.

    • Andriese (foot) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list prior to Sunday's game against the Dodgers. He has been on the shelf since July 19 with a bruised foot. Andriese has a 5.91 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 51 strikeouts in 45.2 innings. Look for him to return to a low-to-mid-leverage role.
