Angels General Manager, Jerry DiPoto, said today that they are “making progress” on an extension for short stop Erick Aybar according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports. “I'm very confident that we'll be able to get something done,” he said. “Erick wants to be here. It's just a matter of winding up a deal that works for both sides. (The negotiations) have been going on since December. It's never been contentious. It's always been an open discussion. It's ongoing.” “Over the course of the winter we've had a lot of additions, quite a few things on the docket,” Dipoto added. “Not to say that Erick was item of importance No. 6. But he understood there was a lot going on. He's been great about it.” Aybar is a career .275/.318/.379 hitter with 24 HR's and 210 RBI's in 2,397 AB's throughout seven years with the Angels. His career VORP is 89.1, his FRAA 2.2 and his WARP 9.5. Image by Keith Allison under the Creative Commons License.
