Angels Rumors: LA “Very Unlikely” to Land Zack Greinke

The Los Angeles Angels were once one of the team’s favored to sign right-hander Zack Greinke this offseason, but after falling out of the sweepstakes it is “very unlikely” the club makes a last minute effort to ink the free agent, reports Jim Bowden of ESPN.

Entering the offseason the Angels traded away Ervin Santana to the Kansas City Royals and let right-hander Dan Haren walk, opting not to exercise his option for 2013. The thought was that Los Angeles was preparing to make a concentrated effort to re-sign Greinke.

Instead, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Texas Rangers are now sitting as the likely landing spots for Greinke. The Angels haven’t been inactive, as they’ve traded Jordan Walden for Tommy Hanson and signed veteran Joe Blanton, but the players they acquired are not in the same neighborhood as Greinke.
