Following their signing of free agent slugger Josh Hamilton, the Los Angeles Angels are “very likely” to trade one of their additional outfielders, Peter Bourjos or Mark Trumbo, for a pitcher, reports Danny Knobler of CBS Sports. Angels are very likely to trade one of the outfielders (Bourjos, Trumbo) for a pitcher. Could be either one, depending on the return. — DKnobler (@DKnobler) December 14, 2012 Knobler notes that it could be either Bourjos or Trumbo depending on which pitcher the team gets in return. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports adds that Trumbo seems to be “less available” than Bourjos. The Angels have already acquired Tommy Hanson and Joe Blanton this offseason, but they remain in the market for pitching after trading Ervin Santana to the Kansas City Royals, declining Dan Haren’s option for 2013 and losing Zack Greinke to free agency. The Angels are one of the teams that are reportedly in the mix for New York Mets right-hander R.A. Dickey. Beyond Bourjos and Trumbo, outfielder Kendrys Morales and right-hander Garrett Richards could also be available.

Hamilton Fallout: Trade Bourjos, Trumbo, or Morales?

After losing out on Zack Greinke, the Angels decided to just take the money they had ticketed for a pitcher and sign Josh Hamilton instead. It’s certainly a bold move, and even with all of Hamilton’s red flags, he should probably project as something around a +4 win player for 2013, though of course the variance around that mark is probably larger than with most hitters. However...

Why Josh Hamilton May Be a Downgrade For The Angels

You probably think I’m crazy don’t you? Or worse, you think I’m going to make some sort of tasteless assumption that Josh Hamilton going to LA will lead him back to his past addictions. So how on Earth can Josh Hamilton – the 2010 AL MVP; the first free agent coming off a 40-HR, 120-RBI season since Alex Rodriguez; the man with talent seemingly on loan from God – be a downgrade...

Angels hire Josh Hamilton's 'accountability partner' from Rangers

The Los Angeles Angels are into Josh Hamilton for five years and $125 million and, although team owner Arte Moreno said there was "no special language" in the outfielder's contract citing consequences for a potential drug or alcohol relapse, the team will take extra steps to keep the admitted addict on the straight and narrow.
