Los Angeles Dodgers: How Stephen Strasburg's contract affects LA
Among the teams believed to be interested in Cole are the Yankees , Angels, Dodgers, Phillies and Rangers. Strasburg also has the highest annual average value, eclipsing Zack Greinke's $31.5 million.
His original tenure with the group stretched from 1989 to 1992 before he quit the band following their surge in popularity with the release of "Blood Sugar Sex Magik" in 1991 and after Frusciante had developed a serious heroin addiction. "Frusciante came back six years later, joining them for 1999's 'Californication', 2002's "By The Way", and 2006's 'Stadium Arcadium".
This is obviously huge news, both that Klinghoffer is leaving and Frusciante is rejoining.
Klinghoffer, formerly the band's backup touring guitarist, according to Rolling Stone, appeared on the two most recent albums, 2011's "I'm With You" and 2016's "The Getaway".

The Rangers' signings of Kyle Gibson and Jordan Lyles added additional depth behind incumbent veterans Mike Minor and Lance Lynn . Despite the injuries this past season, there is no questioning Kluber's status as one of the elite pitchers of this generation.
At this stage, neither Klinghoffer nor Frusciante have commented publicly on the new lineup of the band, though there's no denying that there are exciting times ahead for fans of the group's classic era.
In the meantime, here's a deep-cut track from the Frusciante era of Red Hot Chili Peppers. Josh is a lovely musician who we respect and love. We are deeply grateful for our time with him, and the countless gifts he shared with us, ' the group said in a text-only posting.
The Californian band shared a post on their official instagram to make the shock announcement saying: "with great excitement and full hearts, that John Frusciante is rejoining our group". But the latter is the guitarist behind numerous Chili Peppers' most adored albums-1989's Mother's Milk, 1991's Blood Surgar Sex Magik, and 1999's Californication, to name a few.
