The Angels are interested in George Sherrill, but may not be willing to part with the talent the Orioles seek, according to Bill Shaikin of the LA Times. The Orioles are looking for two top prospects in exchange for their closer and were scouting last night's Angels game to evaluate the talent on LA's major league roster.
Sherrill, 32, has less than $1MM remaining on this year's contract and he's under team control through 2011. As much as the Angels would like to have Sherrill available in the late innings, they're hesitant to surrender the top talent the O's want. Along with Sherrill, the Orioles have told teams that Danys Baez, Aubrey Huff and Melvin Mora are available. Sherrill is by far the cheapest of the four.
