Bobby Abreu Close To Joining The Angels

According to the good folks at MLB Trade Rumors Bobby Abreu has reached a preliminary agreement with the Anaheim Angels.  The deal is reportedly for one-year and worth $5MM with some incentives.  Abreu made $16MM last season while playing with the New York Yankees.

Abreu will turn 35 next month.  Despite showing some decline in his power numbers he has had six straight seasons of at least 100 RBI and at least 22 stolen bases.  This past season Abreu joined Rickey Henderson and Barry Bonds as the only players to hit at least 200 homers and steal 300 bases and manage to get on base at a clip of .400.
