Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times is reporting that Torii Hunter is expected to re-sign with the Angels this offseason:
Torii Hunter came away from a recent lunch meeting with General Manager Jerry Dipoto convinced the Angels would make a strong push to re-sign him after his five-year, $90-million contract expires in October.
Hunter is having a great season, hitting .305/.357/.444 with 15 homers. Given the existence of Mike Trout and Peter Bourjos he’s a right fielder now, but even with a loaded outfield in Anaheim, he’s definitely worth keeping around.
