MLB Winter Meetings 2015: Angels Reportedly Shopping Pitcher C.J. Wilson

NASHVILLE – There could be another starting pitcher available for a deal, as Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports the Angels are shopping the services of pitcher C.J. Wilson.

Wilson last season was 8-8 with a 3.61 ERA in 21 starts and 132 innings with the Angels, and has one year left on the deal he inked with Los Angeles back at the Winter Meetings in 2012, a five-year deal worth $77.5 million.

The 6’1 left is coming off elbow surgery to remove bone spurs, and being owed $20 million the Angels would likely have to pay some of that for a team to take him.

Pitching is a strength for the Angels, who have a number of starters on their roster, so if they can find the right trading partner, it could be a smart move to dump Wilson now and eat some of his 2016 salary.
