Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Howie Kendrick or 3B David Freese are likely to be traded this offseason so that the team can address other needs, mainly their pitching, according to major league sources. The Angels could seek another starting pitcher or a left-hander for their bullpen. Both Kendrick and Freese are entering the final year of their contracts, and Kendrick may be more likely to be dealt because the team could replace him with 2Bs Grant Green or Gordon Beckham. Kendrick has limited no-trade protection that allows him to block a trade to six teams this year and just four next year.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B David Freese is hitting .344 since July 31, and he moved up to the sixth spot in the order Wednesday, Aug. 20. SS Erick Aybar was dropped in the order.
Fantasy Tip: Freese has just two homers and nine RBIs in 103 at-bats since the All-Star break. While his average has climbed, he still isn't producing enough to warrant much consideration in mixed leagues. Aybar has hit just .209 since the break and doesn't have much mixed-league value either.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B David Freese hit a two-run double as his team beat the Houston Astros 5-2 Thursday, July 3, in the opener of a four-game series. Freese has six RBIs in his last five games, two more than he had in the previous 27 games in which he had an at-bat.
Fantasy Tip: If you can pick Freese off the waiver wire -- and chances are you can, as most players have given up on him -- do so. He may be finding his bat at just the right time. Stash him away and see how he does.
