ESPN’s Jim Bowden reports that multiple American League teams are interested in trading for Los Angeles Angels slugger Kendrys Morales.
The Angels reportedly want to hold on to both Mark Trumbo and Peter Bourjos following the signing of Josh Hamilton, and could look to shop Morales to DH-needy teams. Bowden considers the Tampa Bay Rays, Houston Astros, and Cleveland Indians as possible destinations.
The 29-year old Morales provided a slash line of .273/.320/.467 through 484 at-bats last season. In 2009, the switch-hitting Morales was fifth in MVP voting after providing an OPS+ of 139. Morales suffered an ankle injury on May 29, 2010, during a celebration of his walk-off grand slam, which kept him out of the Major League for nearly two years.
