AL West: Angels trade for Danny Espinosa

Check out what’s happening in the American League West.

MLB: NLDS-Washington Nationals at Los Angeles Dodgers Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

The Angels have acquired shortstop Danny Espinosa via a trade with the Washington Nationals.

In exchange for Espinosa, the Nationals received two prospects. The 29-year old doesn’t have the most sparkling offensive numbers. His 24 home runs this season is largely overshadowed by his .209 batting average. However, he could be shaping up to be the newest second baseman for Los Angeles.

Here’s what else is happening in the American League West:

The Oakland A’s are on the hunt for a second baseman. Yeah...we’re not too sure on why either.

The Astros have signed infielder Reid Brignac to a minor league contract.

Tyler Pike and Alex Jackson are on their way to the Braves in exchange for Max Povse and Rob Whalen.

The Yankees recently acquired Matt Holliday from the St. Louis Cardinals. His contract was decently standard, except for one little detail.

Ouch. I hope none of you have hypertension because that’s salty.

Remember Danny Espinosa? We just talked about him. Yeah, that guy. Well, he could either be the newest breakout player to hit the Angels roster, or one of the biggest pair of lead shoes the team could wear.

Free agent Chris Carter has been drawing interest from the Texas Rangers.
