Angels Closing In On Bobby Abreu

8:55pm: Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times collected a few quotes from Abreu’s agent, Peter Greenberg:

"The Angels have expressed interest, and we’ve been talking to them — they’re definitely one of the more interesting situations for Bobby," said Greenberg.  "It’s a good city, a winning team, and he has some friends over there."

"We’d still like a multi-year deal, but if he doesn’t get what he wants, he’ll be fine with a one-year deal.  Then, he could re-establish his market value and hope for better luck next year. He might be faced with that."

8:35pm:’s Jon Heyman says the Angels "appear to be closing in on a deal" with Abreu.

7:44pm: ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick heard from two baseball sources that the Angels are in serious talks toward a one-year agreement with Abreu.

7:09pm:’s Ken Rosenthal reports that the Angels waived right-hander Nick Green from the 40-man roster on Tuesday and believes the team "could be trying to create a spot for a free-agent hitter."

The Angels are thought to prefer Bobby Abreu over Adam Dunn.  "One GM pursuing Abreu said Tuesday that he was told Abreu was close to signing with an Amercian League team," writes Rosenthal.
