Don't expect the red-hot Angels to make a play for Rays ace David Price. Los Angeles has one of the worst farm systems in baseball, so the team lacks the blue chip minor league prospects it would take to land the 2012 AL Cy Young winner. And GM Jerry Dipoto has no intention of trading away major league talent to get Price. “We’re not looking to move pieces from our major league club,” Dipoto told the Los Angeles Times. “We’re open to the idea of getting deeper on the pitching side. We’ll see how that plays out. But our team is gelling, and we don’t want to detract from that.” The Angels are in second place in the American League West, just 1.5 games behind the games. They entered the All-Star Game on a five-game winning streak and hold a 6.5-game lead for the first wild-card spot.
