Lone Star Signatures #LS6
Bobby Abreu enters his fourth spring with the Angels as a man without a position as a direct result of the Angels signing Albert Pujols. Pujols will play first which shifts Mark Trumbo to DH and leaves Abreu as the back-up DH or the team's fifth outfielder. There might not be many regular at-bats to be had for Abreu and the reports are that both parties would prefer to part ways.
Abreu was almost part of a three-way deal this spring that would have landed him back in the Bronx and added A.J. Burnett to the Phillies pitching rotation, but it was not to be.
