When interim GM Bill Stoneman took former GM Jerry Dipoto’s office, he also inherited work in progress, which included trade talks with other clubs to find a bat. Here we have headlines relating to talks that have been confirmed throughout the season:
- Stoneman himself talked with Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times about his approach to trades, and how he won’t “bend” to any pressure to make a deal.
- As MLB Trade Rumors continues to look at positional availability around the game, Jeff Todd checked in at the first base and designated hitter positions.
- Our very own Ryan W. Krol gives his take on possible Angels trade targets.
- According to MLB Trade Rumors, the Angels and A’s talked Josh Reddick before Dipoto’s resignation.
- MLB Daily Dish reports that the Halos discussed Adam Lind and Gerardo Parra with the Brewers.
- Also from MLB Daily Dish, Trevor Gott almost went to the Phillies. But the Angels said no at the last minute.
