On December 9, 2017, the Angels signed RHP/OF Shohei Ohtani from Japan to a minor league contract with a $2.315 million signing bonus. He made the major league roster.[1][2]

On December 13, 2017, the Angels traded minor leaguers Troy Montgomery and Wilkel Hernandez to the Detroit Tigers for 2B Ian Kinsler. Two days later, the Angels signed Zack Cozart to a three-year, $38 million contract. Cozart is expected to play third base.[3]

On February 21, 2018, the Angels acquired Jabari Blash from the New York Yankees in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.[4]
