    Mar 14, 2013, 9:44 AM EST

    Vernon Wells

    I saw the headline “Vernon Wells trying to hit his way into the Angels’ outfield,” and my first thought was that this was some sort of Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan situation. WATCH OUT, MIKE TROUT! But really: Wells is totally raking this spring: .389/.455/.889 with three homers.  granted (a) he’s playing later in games and is…

    Peter Bourjos, Mike Trout

    Speaking about the decision not to make a qualifying offer to free agent Torii Hunter on Friday, Angels GM Jerry Dipoto said he intends to go young and cheap in the outfield next season.

  17. Did not calling up Mike Trout earlier cost the Angels a playoff spot?

    Oct 2, 2012, 2:14 PM EST

    Mike Trout

    Lost in Mike Trout‘s historic rookie season and the heated AL MVP debate is that the Angels didn’t call him up from Triple-A until April 28 and will likely end up missing the playoffs by 2-3 games. Obviously there’s no guarantee that having Trout from Opening Day on would have equaled 2-3 more wins for…

    Here’s the top 50 of a rather weak free agent class. Again, I didn’t include Robinson Cano, R.A. Dickey and some others whose options are sure to be picked up. Also absent is Mark Reynolds. He is not eligible for free agency, though there’s a good chance he’ll be non-tendered this winter. All ages are…

    Tampa Bay Rays v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Peter Bourjos has started just two of the Angels’ last nine games as the combination of his poor first two months and Mike Trout‘s arrival pushed the Opening Day center fielder to the bench.
