According to the most trusted MLBTR, the Angels are likely to offer Aramis Ramirez a contract shortly. With that being said, they appear to have an abundance of 3B and that could necessitate a trade. Alberto Callaspo would seem to be available. He is relatively young at 28, had a good year at the plate for the Angels and is a good defensive player according to Baseball Reference's defensive WAR (2nd in the AL with 1.7). His slash stats are good for AVG/OBP but lacking for SLG at .288/.366/.375 respectively. Yes, he would be a downgrade in the power department but would be a huge upgrade defensively (again 1.7 dWAR vs -0.9 WAR). That's almost 3 wins on defense alone. Overall the WAR difference is only .9 but obviously Callaspo would be considerably cheaper contract wise. He will be due a decent raise over 2011 which was $2M so probably $4-6M. If the Angels were reasonable in what they would want back, would you do it?
Thanks in advance for your wisdom.
