Angels GM Billy Eppler is still looking for a second baseman to round out his batting order, and there's a growing sense that Detroit's Ian Kinsler is at the top of his list. The two teams continue to talk, but no deal was imminent as of Wednesday afternoon. The Mets, Giants and Brewers also have checked in on Kinsler, who is signed for an affordable $10 million in 2018. The Angels are among the teams on Kinsler's no trade list, but he would most likely waive it and go to Anaheim for a contract extension.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia pronounced himself optimistic about Shohei Ohtani's health after a Yahoo Sports report revealed that the team's new addition has a first-degree sprain of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. "The understanding we have is that it's something that's behind him," Scioscia said. "There's no concern. There are no restrictions. He'll be full go in spring training." Scioscia reiterated that the Angels are thinking about using Ohtani as part of a six-man rotation in 2018.
