Yankees & Angels Discussed Vernon Wells Trade
The Angels, once again, have way too many angels in the outfield after the recent signing of Josh Hamilton. The Angels would really like to trade Kendrys Morales or Vernon Wells but it seems more likely that they will have to trade Peter Bourjos or Mark Trumbo to clear a spot. The Yankees and the Angels did discuss a Vernon Wells deal in Nashville at the Winter Meetings but that obviously went no where. Vernon is owed $21 million in each of the 2013 and 2014 seasons. Obviously the Angels would eat up to $18-$19 mill of that each season to have to move him but is it still worth it? Vernon Wells is a right handed hitter that could compliment the Yankees current all left hander outfield after hitting .266/.312/.409 the last two seasons against left handed pitching. Should we make the trade?
