An inventory of the Angels trade assets

It’s no secret the Angels will be (and currently are) on the hunt for offense come trading season. Even with Chris Iannetta heating up and Pujols’ inevitable “resurgence” (really, it just means he won’t be as bad as he has been) the Angels offense would merely grade out as weak.
