The Los Angeles Angels are in last place in the American League West right now and they have one of the worst farm systems in the show. Only way to fix that (other than drafting and scouting better) is to make some deals this month in an effort to get younger and add to the prospect pool. Looking at the roster, the Angels don’t have any big time players that they should be willing to deal. Yunel Escobar, Hector Santiago, Matt Shoemaker and Joe Smith are likely the best trade chips the Angels have to deal. Escobar would be of particular interest to the Indians, Giants and Royals. I would make a deal with any of those teams tomorrow if they gave me a solid prospect for him. Santiago and Shoemaker are going to have the same teams interested in both of them. They are the Orioles, Red Sox, Tigers, Rangers, Royals, Mariners, Mets, Marlins, Pirates and Dodgers. The Angels are in a good position to extract a lot for Shoemaker or Santiago, because they don’t need to trade them and starting pitching is pretty scarce on the trade market right now. Joe Smith is a guy I would move for sure (just like Escobar). The Tigers, Mariners and Cardinals will likely be calling about Smith and there is no reason not to find a match with one of them. The Angels should get a decent prospect for Smith. Injuries to a closer this month could open up an opportunity for the Angels to deal Huston Street. The Cubs or Cardinals would be fits for him right now. Righty reliever Fernando Salas, 2B Johnny Giavotella, catcher Geovany Soto, infielder Gregorio Petit, outfielder Daniel Nava and outfielder Shane Robinson all look like throw in type players to make a deal happen. None of them are worth much on the trade market by themselves. The Angels have to be aggressive this month and get some legit prospects in some deals.
