Los Angeles Angels Trade Rumors: Halos Willing To Part With Peter Bourjos, Garrett Richards

The Los Angeles Angels look like they're going to be quite active at this year's non-waiver trade deadline. Los Angeles has been scouting both Cole Hamels and Zack Greinke recently, and it looks like the Angels are in the market for a relief pitcher as well.

On Tuesday, it came out that rival executives believe that the Angels have more than enough ammo to land either Hamels or Greinke. On Wednesday, we learned what exactly the Angels might be willing to deal, as they look to bolster their squad for the stretch run.

Per Danny Knobler:

The Angels, who have played before a huge gathering of scouts this week in Detroit, are willing to offer outfielder Peter Bourjos for the right reliever. The Angels are also suggesting to teams that they would deal designated hitter Kendrys Morales. And Garrett Richards, who pitched well Tuesday night against the Tigers, could also be available in a deal for one of the top starters.

"That was the best I've ever seen [Richards]," said one scout who watched Tuesday's game. "I've never seen him throw that many strikes. His first pitch of the game was 97 [mph], and he was still throwing 97 in the sixth."

If the offseason didn't prove it, the Angels are quite serious about winning -- and winning now. Though the Rangers currently have the superior team, Los Angeles' brass are likely going to do everything they can to change that prior to July 31, or, at the least, narrow the gap.
