ANGEL EYES: Bloomberg Sports has struck a deal with the Angels to develop a state-of-the-art player evaluation system marrying the company's expertise in analytics with video for both major and minor league players, beginning with the '13 season. Similar to a broad-based pact Bloomberg Sports signed in January with the Cubs, the Angels deal is among the largest to date for the company, and calls for the customizable player analysis platform to be accessible on both computer and tablet platforms. Bloomberg Sports now is working with 24 MLB clubs on player evaluation, the company said more than 200 big-league players are using their tablet-based products (Eric Fisher, SportsBusiness Journal).
