The LA Angels have many free agent options to think about signing this offseason, and they really need to get this right.
The Halos have a lot of money to spend this offseason, and can’t be putting it in the wrong places. They have clear needs on their roster, and need to attack those so we can finally get our team to the next level.
There are a few notable free agents that belong nowhere near this roster. A couple of them have player options, and may want to opt out and test free agency. We should focus our attention elsewhere, and not worry about any of these three guys.
No. 3 free agent the LA Angels should definitely pass on: Charlie Blackmon
Charlie Blackmon may as well opt out of his contract and test free agency. The LA Angels, however, shouldn’t bother.
That’s a great crew of outfielders already, and all four have the potential to be better than Blackmon. This is especially true considering that Blackmon had arguably the worst year of his career this past season.
Blackmon has a good resume in this league, and would most likely cost over $20 million per year. The Angels need to just stick with what they have.
