|(12/1/14) The Angels are expected to tender a contract offer to third baseman David Freese by Tuesday's deadline, according to the Los Angeles Times. Freese is expected to make $6.3 million in arbitration.
However, the team is not expected to tender an offer to infielder Gordon Beckham. The team would like to have Beckham back on the roster next season, but not for the $5 million he is projected to make in his third year of arbitration.
The Angels are also expected to tender offers to Garrett Richards, Kevin Jepsen, Hector Santiago, Fernando Salas and Collin Cowgill.
Angels still fielding trade inquiries on Kendrick, Freese
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/13/14) The Angels aren't in a rush to trade second baseman Howie Kendrick or third baseman David Freese, but for the right deal that includes a pitcher, the team would consider a trade, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
The Yankees and Blue Jays are among the teams that have called about Kendrick, who is receiving more interest than Freese. However, it is believed the Angels are more likely to keep Kendrick than trade him.
Report: Angels put 2B Kendrick, 3B Freese on trading block
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/31/14) The Angels are preparing to trade either second baseman Howie Kendrick or third baseman David Freese in an attempt to bolster their starting rotation or acquire a left-hander reliever, according to Fox Sports.
Both are 31 years old. Kendrick is coming off a strong season in which he tied a career-high with 75 RBI and added 85 runs scored. Freese struggled before a strong September and finished the year with a stat line of .260/.321/.383.
|2014 summary: A change of scenery couldn't reverse the decline for David Freese, who was once again of no consequence in Fantasy with a .260 batting average and 10 home runs. At 31, his best is probably behind him.|
Playing time status: But hey, he played more than 130 games for the third straight season, once again avoiding a major injury after incurring one after another at the start of his career. The accumulation of injuries may have contributed to what appears to be a premature decline, however. At times last year, the Angels seemed to indicate they were open to sitting him, or at least platooning him given his strong numbers against lefties, but they didn't have the personnel to follow through with it.
2015 outlook: Fresh off a World Series MVP, Freese was terrific in 2012 but has basically been Chris Johnson since. With only modest power and subpar plate discipline, he's the kind of third baseman you pluck off the waiver wire when your starter goes bad and hope he doesn't hurt you too much. Most likely, AL-only owners are the only ones drafting him.
