Are The Los Angeles Angels Done Making Moves?

By Jason Evans

The Los Angeles Angels roster is pretty much set. There is probably one spot in the bullpen open and then there’s an open utility infield job. That’s it. The Angels have done a great job of filling the necessary spots they needed to fill. Now we wait and see what the club has in spring training.

The Angels needed help in the bullpen and added Ryan Madson and Sean Burnett. They lost Dan Haren, Ervin Santana and Zack Greinke and added Tommy Hanson, Jason Vargas and Joe Blanton. They added Josh Hamilton out of nowhere while they moved on from Torii Hunter.

I wouldn’t expect them to make another flashy move. The only other move they could make is trading Vernon Wells, and I don’t think that’s going to be happening at this point.

Could they sign another minor league free agent or two? Sure, and they probably should, especially a starting pitcher or maybe someone who hits left-handed for some extra depth.

This is the slow time off the off-season. There may be another big move or two and there are some good names in the free agent market who are left, however, the Angels are not going to be one of them.

I think if there’s a move that makes sense for the team, Jerry Dipoto will do it. What that is, I don’t really know. I do know that Dipoto has done a fantastic job putting the club together. Now we wait another six weeks to start and see how they look.
