Albert Pujols Rumors: Los Angeles Angels Pursuing Pujols

It appears that we can add another suitor to the mix now on Albert Pujols, as Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports is reporting that the Los Angeles Angels are pursing the free agent first baseman. He added that talks are ongoing, although it doesn't appear that they've made an official offer yet.

At the moment, the St. Louis Cardinals, Miami Marlins and a mystery team have ten-year offers out to Pujols, according to previous reports. The Angels make for a new suitor in talks, although it seems highly likely that Pujols goes to one of the three teams that's already offered a commitment of ten years. It's just not clear yet whether that third team is the Angels, Cubs or someone else possibly. 

The Angels already have Mark Trumbo at first base, as well as Bobby Abreu at designated hitter and Kendrys Morales returning from injury soon after the season begins, so it's not totally clear where Pujols fits in LA. Obviously you move players like Trumbo to free up room for a player of Pujols' caliber, though.
