After missing out on Mark Teixeira, general manager Tony Reagins said Tuesday that Kendry Morales is in line to be the Angels' starting first baseman.
"We feel good about what he can do with considerable at-bats and good health," Reagins said. "At some point our young guys have to get that opportunity." Morales has hit just .249/.302/.408 in 407 plate appearances spread over three seasons in the majors, but the 25-year-old switch-hitter has a .335/.374/.518 line in 208 games at Triple-A. Those numbers are inflated by the hitting environment at Salt Lake, but he's definitely capable of being a productive regular.
