Angels Rumors

A couple of minor trade/signing tidbits surfaced today courtesy of Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times.

DiGiovanna mentions in a reader Q&A that he asked Bill Stoneman whether the team would have interest in Bernie Williams, and Stoneman said he preferred to go with younger players.  Whoever wins the fourth outfielder job in L.A. (Erick Aybar?) should manage a decent amount of at-bats.  Garret Anderson, Gary Matthews Jr., Vladimir Guerrero, and Juan Rivera isn't the healthiest bunch.  Guerrero and Anderson did avoid the DL last year though.

The Q&A also mentions the idea of sending Reggie Willits to Florida for young pitching.  That idea has been around for a while; I wonder if the two clubs have had discussions about him.  Center field remains a glaring weakness for Florida.

Also, while not much of a story, Nick Adenhart didn't seem to mind being mentioned in last summer's Miguel Tejada trade rumors.  The team's top pitching prospect grew up an Orioles fan in Maryland.  Though he's yet to pitch above A ball, Adenhart might be able to post a sub-5 ERA in the bigs right now.

WOW! Angels and Padres rumors. What's next Dodger rumors? I didn't know you talked about anything west of the Mississippi?

Isn't Juan Rivera already on the 60-Day DL (Broken Leg in the D.R.)? Angels have Chone Figgins to be their 4th Outfielder. Not sure who their 5th outfielder will be, but they better hope VLAD stays injury free in 2007, or they'll be looking at .500 right in the grill.

Lame claims of MLBTradeRumors bias! Now I know I've made it.

Other guy, Chone is the starting 3B right now.

I would love to take a shot on wilts for the fish if he was cheap. At his age I am sure he cant demand much. But it would be a perfect pick up for the fish as I love his OBP
