The Angels acquired reliever Chris Resop last winter from the Florida Marlins in exchange for Kevin Gregg. Just as Chris reached the major leagues this year with Anaheim, a sore elbow shut him down. He underwent surgery to have chips removed from his elbow. At season’s end, the Angels tried to move him through waivers from the 40-man roster to the Triple-A Salt Lake roster, and he was claimed by the Atlanta Braves.
South Florida Sun-Sentinel reporter Juan C. Rodriguez caught up with Chris and asked him his opinion of his former teammates mentioned as potential targets in a Florida Marlins trade. It’s an interesting read.
