Bourjos has officially made the team.

Rangers released Ben Revere, Denard Span is still a FA, and Brian Goodwin was a recently released/DFAed outfielder who could be an interesting pick-up.

My bet is they’ll roll with Fletcher and Bourjos covering LF and an extra IF, but could see Puello or a last-minute pick-up too. 

I have always liked Revere but I'm a little intrigued with Goodwin....

Goodwin is someone we'll need likely to platoon with Bourjos in LF and serve as the 4th OF until Upton is back. 

My only concern is.....does this mean we can expect Upton to be out for an extended period?  Seriously, a sprained toe?  Not broken, sprained.  This has happened to me a few times and I'm guessing if it's happened to me it's happened to you guys.  It was more like it was sore and swollen and blue for a couple days and within a week or so I was back to normal.

From the comments:

Jesus Castillo gets the DFA to make room

And wow did that guy ever fall apart fast in the Angels system! Fangraphs had him as the teams #7 prospect, both mlb and Sickles had him at #12, to enter last season

After all the talk about seeing Fletcher in the OF for a short outage, this must be telling us they are seriously concerned about Upton's Toe.  

Maybe not....Goodwin was basically free....if Upton is back in a month and there is no spot for Goodwin, you release him...

He could force some difficult decisions if he does well....we really don’t have room for 5 OF’ers but I guess they could juggle the roster some.....he has a skill set that is intriguing....but he has to produce....

Seems interesting that the Angels will have 2-3 players (Stratton, Freeman, Goodwin) on opening day roster who didn’t play a day for them in spring training. I don’t recall that happening in recent memory.

pretty meh on Goodwin personally.  Would rather have seen them go with Walsh or Ward.

I wouldn’t trust Walsh or Ward in the outfield for more than a game or two.

Didn’t that happen last year? I think Schimpf, Morris, Graterol, Revere, and Almonte were added right before opening day, and at least 2-3 of them were on the club during then opening series.

if we added Ward, it would be Fletcher in the OF.  

Walsh is decent enough in the limited times I've seen him although the halos don't seem to think so.

But were they added without a spring training game under their belt and before the first regular season game?  Seems like Graterol, Revere, and Almonte were at least signed during off season. Schimpf, I have no idea about his transaction, though I think it was late in spring training.

Graterol was DFA’d and the other were added on minor league contracts.
