LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The Angels could fill both vacancies in their starting rotation in one trade. They are in talks to acquire Tyler Skaggs from the Arizona Diamondbacks and Hector Santiago from the Chicago White Sox in a three-way trade that would send Mark Trumbo to Arizona and outfielder Adam Eaton to Chicago. The Angels had tried to get Santiago from the White Sox for infielder Howie Kendrick, but Chicago said no. Trumbo would play the outfield for the Diamondbacks.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla.  - Jerry Dipoto turned Mark Trumbo into three arms and a bat. That is the work of a magician. Provided, of course, that the Angels get solid production from those three arms and a bat. If not, the Angels' general manager just made 30 home runs disappear, and maybe his job with it. On Monday, when the Angels arrived at the winter meetings, they had a three-man starting rotation. On Tuesday, they got to the minimum five, trading Trumbo to the Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-way deal that brought left-hander Tyler Skaggs from Arizona and left-hander Hector Santiago from the Chicago White Sox. That is Step 1. The Angels saved about $3 million in the trade, giving them about $18 million in available funds.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The Angels filled out their starting rotation on Tuesday, trading Mark Trumbo to the Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-way deal. The Angels got Hector Santiago from the Chicago White Sox and Tyler Skaggs from the Diamondbacks, fulfilling an off-season goal of using the power-hitting Trumbo to acquire young and cost-effective pitching. Trumbo, who played first base for the Angels last season, is expected to play left field for Arizona. The Diamondbacks sent center fielder Adam Eaton to Chicago and got two players to be named -- one from the Angels, one from the White Sox. The deal is expected to be announced later Tuesday.

No news is not necessarily good news for Angels General Manager Jerry Dipoto and Manager Mike Scioscia, but it's certainly better than bad news. A second day passed on Tuesday with owner Arte Moreno taking no action on the front office chief and the field boss, further fueling the belief that both will return in 2014 despite another highly disappointing season in which the Angels missed the playoffs for the fourth straight year. Both men are under contract, Scioscia for five more years and about $27 million and Dipoto for one more year, and the team is under no obligation to make any kind of public announcement that both will be retained.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Garrett Richards flinched when Ian Kinsler hit a wicked line drive into his right armpit in the second inning Saturday. The Angels pitcher, looking a little dazed, retrieved the ball, looked a runner back to third base and “lobbed a cutter” that bounced past first baseman Mark Trumbo for an error that allowed the Texas Rangers to score one of their four second-inning runs. But as the Angels defense broke down around Richards, committing four other errors in a 7-4 loss at the Ballpark in Arlington, the 25-year-old right-hander remained unfazed, refusing to let himself succumb to frustration.

ARLINGTON, Texas - It was another sudden and painful ending for the Angels Thursday night at the Ballpark in Arlington, where Jurickson Profar's ninth-inning home run gave the Texas Rangers a 6-5 victory and their fourth straight home win over the Angels to be decided by a walk-off homer dating back to late July. But it would be unfair to pin this loss on Angels reliever Michael Kohn, who tried to go down and away to the left-handed-hitting Profar but left too much of his fastball over the plate.

As the Angels packed their bags, Albert Pujols extended his hand to Mark Trumbo. "Take care. Finish strong," Pujols said. "I'll be in touch. " This was all wrong. Trumbo and the Angels were headed to Texas, to try to knock the Rangers out of the playoffs. Pujols was headed home, his season ended by injury in July. BOX SCORE: Angels 3, Oakland 1 Manager Mike Scioscia and General Manager Jerry Dipoto were headed to Texas too, neither one sure of whether he would be working for the Angels next week.

It has been a nice little run for the Angels since Aug. 23, their 21-8 record before Monday's game against Oakland taking some sting out of another disappointing season, but they can't let it fool them into thinking they can roll into 2014 with this personnel. If the Angels are to end a four-year playoff drought next season, they'll need pitching, pitching and more pitching. "There are some fundamental things we need to look at that a good finish will not and should not mask.

It all worked out in the end for the Angels on Friday night, as Chris Iannetta drove a two-out single off the left-center field wall in the 11th inning to score Kole Calhoun from first base for a 3-2 walk-off victory over the Seattle Mariners. Matt Shoemaker allowed only two hits in five scoreless innings in his major league debut, and Dane De La Rosa, Ernesto Frieri, Juan Gutierrez and Cory Rasmus each threw scoreless relief innings to help the Angels win for the 20th time in 27 games and prevent them from being mathematically eliminated from playoff contention.

OAKLAND - The Angels' pursuit of pitching this winter will likely extend to the Far East, where a significant rotation boost could be acquired without having to trade players such as Mark Trumbo or Howie Kendrick. The Angels, who beat the Oakland Athletics, 12-1, Monday night, had a scout in Japan last week to watch Masahiro Tanaka pitch, and they are considering a run at the undefeated Rakuten Eagles right-hander, whom scouts project as a No. 2 or No. 3 starter in the major leagues.
