Free Agent Options –

D.J. LeMahieu – 

LeMahieu should be the top player on the Angels radar if they want to sign a second baseman this off-season.  LeMahieu can both hit and field and is a great table setter with a career .29 batting average and a .350 OBP. He has averaged 10 homers and 63 RBIs over the last four seasons.  LeMahieu has also won the NL Gold Glove three times in the past five seasons.

His asking price is probably going to be around 13-15 million dollars per season, but it could be well worth it, especially for the Angels as LeMahieu could not only fill the Angels void at second base, but he would be a great lead-off hitter which the Angels need as well.

If the Angels make only one more move this off-season this is the one they should work hard to get done as it makes too much sense.
