Los Angeles Angels owner Arte Moreno suggests that the Angels are unlikely to sign a big name free agent outfielder.
Despite a relatively-glaring need, the Angels may elect to sit out on high-priced outfield options. On Wednesday evening, the Los Angeles Angels owner Arte Moreno said that his team will "probably be out" when it comes to signing Alex Gordon, Yoenis Cespedes or Justin Upton. This was announced concurrently with the Daniel Nava deal becoming official.
The Angels have added a number of pieces this offseason, but they still have two notable holes at second/third base and left field. After the trouble the Angels had with Josh Hamilton, it doesn't surprise me that they are reluctant to commit to anyone long term.  The Angels have also been known, however, to keep their plans quiet until the last possible moment.  This could simply be Arte Moreno posturing.
