The Los Angeles Angels acquired pitcher James Hoyt from the Miami Marlins for cash.

What does it give the Los Angeles Angels
In Hoyt, the Angels land a solid arm with loads of experience (especially in the minor leagues). A bit of a late-blooming reliever, he should compete for a spot in LA's bullpen this season.

What does it give the Miami Marlins
The Marlins chose to keep Rule 5 pitchers Paul Campbell and Zach Pop on the 26-man roster, which made Foyt expendable. So, they shipped the latter to the Angels and got back a little bit of cash.

Fantasy impact
Foyt is not expected to pitch in high-leverage situations, so he can be safely ignored in most fantasy leagues at this time.
