The Angels, as expected, did not make a 13.3-million qualifying offer to Torii Hunter by Fridays 2 p.m. deadline, a decision that does not preclude the veteran right fielder from returning to Anaheim but clearly reduces the chances.
The Angels can continue to negotiate with Hunter, but so can 29 other teams. After hitting .313 with 16 home runs and 92 runs batted in last season and carrying the Angels for much of September, there should be plenty of suitors for Hunter despite the fact hes 37.
And if Hunter, whose five-year, 90-million contract expired after the season, signs elsewhere, the Angels will not receive draft-pick compensation for him, which makes him more attractice to teams pursuing him in free agency.
"It's probably a bigger hurdle, yes," agent Larry Reynolds said when asked how much the move decreases the chances of Hunter returning to the Angels. "But Jerry Dipoto has been very straighforward with us. This is no surprise at all. We appreciate his...

ON THE MARKET
It appeared like Dan Haren was getting traded to the Cubs, but that didn't go down. Instead, the pitcher is now a free agent.
Dan Haren became a free agent after the Los Angeles Angels failed to work out a trade and then declined the pitcher's 2013 option.
Haren, a three-time All-Star from 2007-09, gets a $3.5 million buyout under the deal, which included a $15.5 million club option for 2013.
Hours earlier on Friday, the Angels agreed to trade Haren to the Chicago Cubs for closer Carlos Marmol. But...
The New York Yankees have interest in free agent outfielder Torii Hunter, tweets Mark Feinsand of The New York Daily News.
Hunter, 37, may have lost a step since he won nine Gold Glove awards as one of the league’s elite center fielders, but he has proven he can still be a good fielder since moving to right field for the Los Angeles Angels.
He can still swing the bat as well, hitting...
Well, that escalated (and then de-escalated) quickly.
There the Angels were on the verge of making a questionable deal sending Dan Haren to the Cubs for Carlos Marmol and before we knew it, the trade was called off (by the Cubs, no less!) and Haren's options was declined, leaving the Angels with nothing to show for what appeared to be a nice trade asset.
It was all just...
Free agency opens in just a few days and we've all already heard a great deal about who the Angels are interested in or should be interested in. In fact, we've probably heard these speculative suggestions more than any of us care to. Yet what nobody ever mentions are the guys that could interest the Angels but really shouldn't. As the Tony Reagins era taught us...
Here are the latest rumors regarding Free Agent in the Major Leagues:
– The Angels' top priority this offseason is to re-sign right handed pitcher Zack Greinke according to Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com. They will face some fierce competition though, since the Rangers are interested in him also.
– Even though the White Sox declined Kevin Youkilis' option, they would...
It's been a busy few days for the Los Angeles Angels (of Anaheim).
On Wednesday, the team traded one starting pitcher in Ervin Santana, sending him and cash to the Kansas City Royals for a minor league pitcher. On Friday, the team was back at it, sending Dan Haren to the Chicago Cubs in exchange for reliever Carlos Marmol, as first reported by the Chicago Sun...
The Angels didn`t trade Dan Haren to the Cubs for Carlos Marmol on Friday night. But if they had, this would have been our reaction.
Details are still trickling out, but it appears that the Angels have finally pulled the trigger on the inevitable Dan Haren trade. Multiple Spanish-language reports claim that Haren has been dealt to the Chicago Cubs for Carlos Marmol.
Carlos Marmol (Cubs) have been traded to the Angels. The pitcher confirms the move to @elcariberd. "Anaheim is a good team".
