MLB Rumors: Los Angeles Angels Talking Trade With Rival

The Los Angeles Angels are looking to trade Jo Adell before the start of the regular season. Although the young outfielder is viewed as having a good amount of potential, Los Angeles’ outfield depth is too deep for him to emerge as an everyday player. As a result, a change of scenery would likely do him some good, and the Oakland A’s are reportedly making a push for him.

Although there are always some risks when trading with a division rival, it seems likely that the Angels would be open to striking a deal with the A’s if it results in them landing a player that would help them in the present. As a result, there certainly could be a match here. 

With the A’s rebuilding, they are in a position to take a chance on a young player like Adell. It will be interesting to see if he ends up being traded to the A’s from here, as he certainly could be a good fit for their roster at this present time.
