Rosenthal: Angels, Astros Make Tejada Offers

Ken Rosenthal's got the scoop on a sweet offer made to the Orioles for Miguel Tejada: starter Ervin Santana and shortstop Erick Aybar.


The Orioles, characteristically an indecisive team, need to pounce on this offer.  Baltimore will not be ready to compete in the AL East for several years, and prime young pitching isn't offered up every day.  Put Santana under Leo Mazzone's tutelage and he could blossom into a true ace.  And Aybar, while overshadowed by the Halos' other infield prospects, looks to be an above average regular for many years.  Not surprising to see Aybar used as a trading chip, but I didn't expect the Angels to offer up Santana.

As far as the Astros, Rosenthal just states that "prime Major League pieces" were offered.  He also mentions the Tigers and Dodgers as players.
