Angels trade rumors: Mark Trumbo could interest Braves

Otto Greule Jr

With plenty of outfielders on the roster, Trumbo could be on his way out in Los Angeles.

The Angels and Braves already struck up one trade this offseason that send reliever Jordan Walden to Atlanta in exchange for starter Tommy Hanson. Following the Angels' signing of outfielder Josh Hamilton, the club could match up with the Braves in another potential deal.

According to a tweet from David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Mark Trumbo is on Atlanta's radar as they continue to search for a left fielder. Trumbo split time between the outfield and first base last season, although he'd be relegated to left field should he be dealt to Atlanta.

The reason the Braves could be a solid trade partner with the Angels (again) is the amount of pitching depth they have in their system. The club has multiple top pitching prospects, including blue chippers in Julio Teheran and Randall Delgado. A pitcher working his way up through the system could also intrigue Los Angeles, and the Braves have a few in the way of Sean Gilmartin, J.R. Graham and Zeke Spruill.

There are no serious discussion between the two clubs as of Friday night, but there does seem to be a fit should talks heat up in the coming days.
