Los Angeles Angels 2014 Season
The Los Angeles Angels were suffering last year with holes in the starting pitching rotation and third base position, and with little money left from previous offseason expenditures, the Angels have been pinching pennies this winter. Getting right to addressing their issues, the Angels traded centerfielder Peter Bourjos and outfield prospect Randal Grichuk to the Cardinals
for third-baseman David Freese and reliever Fernando Salas. Afterwards, Anaheim signed right-hander Joe Smith and traded first-base slugger Mark Trumbo to the Diamondbacks
. A deal that landed them young lefthander Tyler Skaggs, White Sox
starter Hector Santiago, and veteran Raul Ibanez.
With all of these young prospects filling up the bullpen, the Halos are still looking to offset the risk by attaining a veteran starting pitcher. Reportedly, their focus has shifted to bagging Bronson Arroyo and Matt Garza before Spring Training commences. So, strapped for money, the Angels were restricted this winter and unable to make as many big-name deals maybe as they would have liked--but with such a solid foundation backing up young talents, the Los Angeles Angels are sure to make waves this season!
Whither the Los Angeles Angels? On one hand, after picking up arguably the best player in baseball before last season, in first baseman Albert Pujols, the Halos were never able to get untracked from a slow start, which Pujols got off to as well in his first American League season. On the other hand, once Pujols got started, he reverted to form; pitcher Jered Weaver came to the fore as a legitimate top of the rotation starter; and outfielder Mike Trout seriously challenged for the AL Most Valuable Player award in his rookie season, ultimately settling on the AL Rookie of the Year award. And in a case of "keeping up" with their NL rivals for fan attention up Interstate 5, the Halos went out and picked up former AL MVP Josh Hamilton as a free agent from their division rivals in Texas. Around the rest of the diamond, team home run leader Mark Trumbo is back, as well as outfielder and leadoff man Torii Hunter; but questions exist in the starting rotation after Weaver, C.J. Wilson, and Ervin Santana. 2013 should prove to be interesting at Angel Stadium of Anaheim, as the Angels have one more division rival to fight off as well, the Houston Astros.
