Los Angeles Angels Second Base Options
Washington Nationals’ Stephen Drew
Much like Rodriguez, Stephen Drew comes at a relatively cheaper price range if the Angels decide to put their money else well.
Last season, Drew batted .266/.339/.863 which is already better than any Angels’ second baseman last season.
Drew made $3M with the Nationals last season, and his price range per year may not be as high as Walkers’ or Rodriguez’s because he only started 31 games.
If the Angels do decide to pursue Drew, he may only be a one year option for the ball club as they wait for some of their younger prospects to move up in the system.
Also, Drew could be a platoon option to go along with Pennington or Petit as the Angels have done that in the past.
Drew was a solid second baseman early in his career, however he has not started 100 games since the 2013 season. If the Angels do bring him in, expect him to be a stopgap option for the Angels.
