OC Register: Could the Angels still sign Mike Moustakas?


Recommended Posts

TEMPE, Ariz. — The Angels may not be finished adding to their roster.

The Angels have had some discussions about bringing in free agent third baseman Mike Moustakas, a source confirmed on Friday. It is unclear whether those talks are serious at this point.

Moustakas, 30, has been connected to the Angels for the past two winters, because he’s a Southern California native and because the Angels could fit him into their lineup.

If the Angels got Moustakas, they would likely move Zack Cozart to second and have Tommy La Stella as their utility infielder, with David Fletcher, Taylor Ward and Luis Rengifo all in Triple-A.

General manager Billy Eppler said the Angels had to “stretch” their budget to land Cody Allen last month, so they’d need to stretch it further to land Moustakas.

Last winter the Angels briefly engaged with Moustakas but couldn’t agree on a deal, so they moved on and signed free agent Cozart. Moustakas lingered on the market and finally signed a $6.5 million deal to return to the Kansas City Royals.

He hit .251 with 28 homers and a .774 OPS with the Royals and Milwaukee Brewers, who acquired him in July.
