Mike DiGiovanna from the Los Angeles Times reports that Bobby Abreu will have a chance to compete for playing time this spring at the DH position. With Albert Pujols now the Anaheim Angels first baseman, Mark Trumbo and Kendry Morales were expected to see most of the time at DH. However, they have faced some injuries, giving Abreu a chance.

It was reported last month that Abreu would "welcome a change of scenery" but he has not yet requested a trade, DiGiovanna reports. Abreu is going to be 38 years old in March, and Angels GM Jerry DiPoto said this yesterday:

"Bobby is an Angel," Dipoto said. "Right now, he fits on our 25-man roster, in our clubhouse, on our team. Where he is in eight weeks is predicated on how he's playing and everyone's health."

Abreu will be in the 17th year of his career this season, it is just yet to be determined if it will be in an Angels uniform.
