According to a MLB source, the Los Angeles Angels are in serious discussions with free-agent outfielder Josh Hamilton. No deal is in place yet, however.
If this deal does indeed go down, I think it won’t be long until R.A. Dickey joins the Angels as well. Hamilton would be joining an outfield already consisting of Mike Trout, Mark Trumbo, and Peter Bourjos. Not to mention they still have Vernon Wells under contract. One of Trumbo or Bourjos would have to be dealt to make room for Hamilton, and I’m sure the Angels would like to add one more starting pitcher to their rotation. Definitely keep your eye on this story as it develops.
