Angels Rumors: Rays, Astros, Indians Interested in Kendrys Morales?

Multiple American League clubs are in play for Los Angeles Angels slugger Kendrys Morales, and the Tampa Bay Rays, Houston Astros and Cleveland Indians are some of the possible fits for him, according to Jim Bowden of ESPN.

Following the signing of Josh Hamilton, it was reported that the Angels were expected to trade one of their outfielders. Beyond Morales, this list also includes Mark Trumbo and Peter Bourjos. Bowden notes that Los Angeles would prefer to hold onto Trumbo and Bourjos, making Morales a more likely trade candidate.

Morales hit .273/.320/.467 with 26 doubles and 22 home runs last season for the Angels. The 29-year-old owns a career line of .281/.331/.491 over six seasons while manning first base, outfield and designated hitter.

The Astros are in the market for a DH, while the Indians and Rays could each use additional offense.
