Angels shopping for bullpen help


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) The Angels are looking to add one or two arms to help solidify the back end of the team's bullpen, with Padres pitchers Huston Street and Joaquin Benoit, Phillies pitcher Jonathan Papelbon and Antonio Bastardo and Athletics pitcher Jim Johnson of interest to the team, MLB.com reports.

"This is by far the most talent we've had in the bullpen since I've been here, the most depth -- we just haven't been able to figure out how to get it on a consistent roll yet," general manager Jerry Dipoto said, though he wouldn't comment on specific targets. "There are pieces here that are very functional in getting to a good bullpen, and I believe that we'll get there. But we are going to have to address some of that in July and help this group out."

The Angels have received spotty play from former ninth-inning man Ernesto Frieri this season, and they'd like to bring a southpaw aboard so that Hector Santiago has the flexibility to move to the rotation if needed. Expect the Angels to keep cropping up in reliever trade rumors over the next month-plus.
