Some good news for the Angels: Zack Cozart, heading into the final season of a $38M deal and limited to 96 games the last two years, is on track to be without restrictions in spring training. The Angels hope to give him as many at-bats as possible to make up for lost time. If he's right, he can be a regular at third or second base, with David Fletcher, Tommy La Stella and Luis Rengifo also factoring in. Makes that group look a whole lot better.

Dylan Bundy might not be anything special, but he has averaged 168 innings over the last three years and the Angels, who went into the offseason seeking at least two starters, needed someone they could count on to remain healthy. They have suffered too many injuries and don't have the depth to absorb them.

I remember a time, in the winter of 2012, when Angels fans were clamoring for Zack Greinke and instead got Joe Blanton. Today, with Angels fans clamoring for Gerrit Cole, the team traded for Dylan Bundy, a similar innings eater. This time, however, it truly feels like merely a depth move. The Angels needed at least two starters and by all accounts will continue to aim high.

Right-hander Dylan Bundy is headed to the Los Angeles Angels in exchange for RHP Isaac Mattson, RHP Zach Peek, RHP Kyle Bradish and RHP Kyle Brnovich, sources tell ESPN. @Ken_Rosenthal had Bundy going from Baltimore to Los Angeles.

The Angels have non-tendered C Kevan Smith, who has OPS'd .709 in 206 games over the last three years. Angels also have the RHH Max Stassi and LHH Anthony Bemboom on the 40-man roster and may only make marginal additions at catcher, if any. They are focused on starting pitching.

It's crunch time for negotiations between the City of Anaheim and the Angels on a new lease that would either renovate the existing stadium or make plans to build a new one. The final City Council meeting is Dec. 17. Ideally, both sides will have voted on and agreed to the framework of a new deal by then and iron out details later. The Angels, who have a Dec. 31 opt-out deadline, say they are solely focused on negotiations with Anaheim. The city said it is "pleased" with the progress thus far.

Cool nugget passed along by the Angels: Throughout history, only two players have finished within the top three in MVP voting seven times in their first nine seasons — Mike Trout and Albert Pujols.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Mike Trout has won his third AL MVP, this time with four more first-place votes than Alex Bregman. The 2019 season marked the 6th time in 8 years that Trout had at least a share of the major league lead in FanGraphs WAR. Only Barry Bonds has won more MVPs.
