Bill Shaikin of the LA Times wrote Wednesday morning that the Angels “long have known they do not have the elite prospects necessary to acquire” ace left-hander David Price from the Rays. And that weak farm system could also mean that another known Angels target will slip through the cracks.
Jul 16, 2014, 4:16 PM EDT
If the Rays do decide to trade David Price before the July 31 deadline don’t count on the Angels being his new home, at least according to general manager Jerry Dipoto.
