Multiple sources have confirmed that the much talked about trade of Mark Trumbo has been completed. The Angels will be sending Mark Trumbo and a player to be named later to Arizona in exchange for pitching prospect Tyler Skaggs and getting pitcher Hector Santiago from the White Sox, who joined in to make this a three-way deal.
As popular as Trumbo was amongst the fans, this is a big, big win for Jerry Dipoto, especially since it comes off the heels of the Freese-Bourjos trade which was not well received by the critics. What the Angels did here was solve a lot of their problems in one fell swoop and give themselves more options going forward to fine tune the roster. All it cost them was Trumbo, a player with great power but problematic on base skills.no comments
