Angels Rumors: LA Not Trading Mark Trumbo

The Los Angeles Angels are telling teams they’re not trading outfielder/first baseman Mark Trumbo and are instead “more inclined to deal” center fielder Peter Bourjos, reports Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports.

Following the signing of Josh Hamilton this week the Angels are now expected to trade one of their remaining outfielders, including Trumbo, Bourjos and Kendrys Morales.

It would appear that the Angels are hoping to receive pitching in exchange for whatever outfielder they decide to trade. Los Angeles was reportedly in talks with the New York Mets for starting pitcher R.A. Dickey. While the Angels say they’re not interested in trading Trumbo, all three outfielders figure to be available for the right pitcher.

Bourjos hit .220/.291/.315 over 168 at-bats for the Angels last season. The 25-year-old owns a career line of .247/.301/.402 over three seasons in the majors. Trumbo, 26, hit .268/.317/.491 with 19 doubles and 32 home runs in 2012 and owns a career line of .259/.302/.478.
