Los Angeles Angels Acquire Ian Kinsler From Detroit Tigers

The Los Angeles Angels bring in another veteran at second base and this time it is Ian Kinsler.

Dating back to this past season’s trade deadline, Ian Kinsler has been linked to a potential trade even being placed on revocable waivers, but no deal was struck. This past season, Ian Kinsler hit .236/.313/.425 in 139 games.

Heading to Detroit is outfielder Troy Montgomery and pitcher Wilkel Hernandez. Both prospects are rising prospects but Troy Montgomery is the faster developmental piece of the trade to Detroit. This past season, Montgomery made his way to AA-Mobile after starting the season at A-Adv-Inland, he finished 2017 batting .271, 8 home runs and 38 RBI’s. Montgomery will likely start the season at AA before a possible jump to AAA at some point in 2018.
