MLB trade rumors: Angels expected to trade Peter Bourjos or Mark Trumbo for pitcher

Leon Halip

The L.A. Angels have too many outfielders and not enough pitchers after the addition of Josh Hamilton's big bat earlier this week.

The Los Angeles Angels are "very likely" to trade either outfielder Peter Bourjos or Mark Trumbo for another pitcher after adding Josh Hamilton, according to multiple sources.

According to CBS' Jon Heyman, Trumbo currently "seems less available than Bourjos" but Heyman's co-worker Danny Knobler believes it simply depends on the return.

It's unclear at this time who the Angels are targeting but Mets knuckleballer R.A. Dickey is the biggest name that is known to be on the trade market at the moment. If Los Angeles was to acquire the veteran pitcher, though, he'd also require a contract extension in the range of two years, $26 million.

The Angels also might be interested in another Mets pitcher, Jonathan Niese. Niese, 26, is considerably younger, though, and owns a favorable contract that runs through 2018. So it would likely take just as much, if not more, to pluck him out of New York.
