The Los Angeles Angels attempt to trade Bobby Abreu to the Cleveland Indians has apparently stalled out, according to Jon Heyman and Mike DiGiovanna. This update clearly does not preclude another Abreu trade attempt, but it looks like it won't be with the Indians, at least for now.
DiGiovanna notes that Abreu is in today's lineup, and Heyman tweets that the deal fell apart:
DiGiovanna adds that the Angels have confirmed Jason Isringhausen has made the team:
Angels reliever Isringhausen on team; Abreu in lineup - latimes.com
"At least one veteran’s job with the Angels is secure. While engaging the Cleveland Indians in trade talks for outfielder Bobby Abreu, the Angels have informed 39-year-old reliever Jason Isringhausen that he will be on the team."
