No. 2 free agent the LA Angels should definitely pass on: Kris Bryant

Kris Bryant is an outstanding player, but he’s just not for the LA Angels.

He doesn’t fit the positions that we need. Even with him proving to be very versatile and actually playing more outfield this year than third base, he still doesn’t fill one of the top needs on our team.

As previously mentioned, this team is loaded up as far as the outfield goes next season. Also, we’re already paying Anthony Rendon $36 million for next year, proving that we can’t throw the money at Bryant to play third base as well.

He outplayed Rendon by a lot this season when Rendon was healthy, however we already invested in Rendon and there’s no turning back now.

Bryant made $19.5 million this year, and may ask for that price to be driven up as he enters free agency. It’s just not meant to be with this club. We’ve already spent a lot of money at the positions he plays.
