Angels GM Tony Reagins told Kevin Baxter of the LA Times that he's talking to other clubs, but those discussions haven't brought him any closer to making a trade than he was a month ago. The Angels could use help in the rotation and in the bullpen and could deal from depth in the middle infield and behind the plate. However, Reagins says there's no point in trading for the sake of trading.
The Angels, who initially had interest in catcher Gary Sanchez, were quiet as the international signing period opened yesterday. They fired international scouting director Clay Daniel last month after hearing he was under investigation for "improprieties in the signing of Venezuelan prospects."
