Kendry Morales is swinging a good stick in AAA for the Los Angeles Angels

If the Angels aren’t going to give 1B Kendry Morales a legit chance at the major leagues they should just trade him and get something they need. The 25-year old switch hitting Morales has played in 45 games in AAA ball this season and he is 61 for 188 (.324 avg, .870 OPS) with 22 runs scored, 8 homers and 37 RBIs. Morales has only played in 1 game for the Angels this season and he is 0 for 1. The Angels should do themselves a favor and trade Morales while he still has a lot of value if they are content with letting him play in the minors.

    Amen to that. Use him or trade him for value before they cant get value for him. Make him the designated hitter and never let gary mathews jr. see the field again. if he does not play he will be forced to waive his no trade clause.

    i heard the dodgers were not happy that there youngsters weren’t producing longoria type numbers and that may motivate a trade. I think atleast as far as hitting is concerned, Kendry is a difference maker. They can’t continue to bury this guy in 3A. Make him the DH, gary mathews does not start again, is motivated to waive his no trade clasue, and we get to see this kid mash. I have seen his swing. He is a keeper if they can find a spot.

    I like Morales too. Gary Matthews is just proving that he had some really good HGH in Texas a couple of years ago. Arte Moreno wanted to get rid of him before he even played in a game. Morales and Rivera should be splitting all of the playing time that Matthews used to get. I think the Angels could get something good if they were to move Morales to a team that had a need for a 1B like the Royals for instance. Ron Mahay would look pretty good in an Angels uniform.
