The Los Angeles Angels Offseason Round Table Questions
4. Are there any free agents the Angels should look at?
Lea: At this point in the offseason, I would say no. Take what you have into Spring Training and prepare for the season.
Rice: The Angels were said to be linked to Matt Wieters and he would be a huge signing. Wieters could play catcher which would be a huge upgrade from Carlos Perez and Martin Maldonado. That is the one spot in the Angels lineup that is most concerning. However, is he affordable is the question.
Page: I think bringing back Jered Weaver would be a great move, but other than that I think the roster is just about complete. One name to watch is catcher Matt Wieters. A veteran catcher (with some pop) would help this pitching staff a ton.
Barney: Matt Wieters seems like the obvious choice. Other than Wieters, I think the Angels just need to give the team they have a chance. If something ends up not working out I think we’ll have some trade candidates later in the year.
Nelson: Depending on the current luxury tax for the Angels with the recent Valbuena signing, I would love for the Angels to pursue Matt Wieters. He’s a solid player, an All-Star, and he quickly upgrades the position. The Angels could also use a relief arm possibly Sergio Romo of the Giants comes to mind.
