The Angels inked Erick Aybar to a one year deal at $5.075 million and they’re still keeping their prospects open for a long term deal. The shortstop had a nice season for the Angels in 2011 and he finished with a career high 10 home runs and 30 stolen bases. He also got his strikeouts down and won his first gold glove.
Aybar has been the starting shortstop for the past three seasons and so far, 2009 has probably been his best season but 2011 was a close second. It’ll be interesting if they can get a longer term deal done because the Angels have a lot of money tied up already. Still, they seem committed to win and having an Aybar/Kendricks infield looks like who they’re interested in.
