Top 3 LA Angels trade candidates for when MLB lockout ends
By Evan Desai
No. 1 LA Angels trade candidate for when MLB lockout ends: Brandon Marsh
Brandon Marsh is the name people keep coming back to when it comes to trade bait that the LA Angels have for pitching.
Marsh, like Adell, dominated the Minor Leagues to the point where the Halos decided to have him come up this year, and he continued to show flashes in the Bigs. He never had to be sent down. His defense was fantastic, and may even force Mike Trout to right field next year.
Marsh has great wheels, and put them on display as he stretched three doubles into triples in just 70 games.
Marsh is one of few great prospects we have, and we've been developing him since 2016. It would be tough to want to trade him. If we do go after pitching, however, Marsh is a very attractive trade chip to other teams.
He has elite speed and he's got pop in his bat. He's the type of big-league ready prospect that teams are looking for.
With the farm not very good over here, Anaheim doesn't have a ton of good trade chips. The ones they do have could potentially spark a deal being done. The Halos will likely still look to free agency to improve the staff, but could very well end up having to pivot to the trade market quickly.
