Originally written September 27, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Angels are in a tough spot this offseason. They need pitching, but they don't have enough payroll flexibility to add a starter. There may be a way for them to get a pitcher, but Angels fans may not like it. In an effort to try to get a starting pitcher, the Los Angeles Angels may have to move Mark Trumbo this offseason, according to Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com. If they are confident that they can get good production from Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton this next season, moving Trumbo may not be a bad idea. The thing is that Trumbo is an up and coming star in MLB and moving him wouldn't be easy at all. He still has his flaws, but they are fixable and with him only being 27-years old, he has a ton of potential. Teams were calling the Angels about Trumbo back in July. Some of those teams were the Pittsburgh Pirates, Seattle Mariners and Kansas City Royals. No deal was worked out, but if the Angels did in fact look into trading Trumbo, you will need to keep an eye on those teams. On the season, Trumbo is hitting .236 with 34 home runs and 100 RBI's.
