A deal is not certain to be completed, with one source describing the possibility as “50-50.” The hangup, the source said, is how much of Abreu’s $9 million salary the Angels would include in the trade.
The Indians, in a development that appeared related to the Abreu talks, removed outfielder Trevor Crowe from a minor-league game on Thursday, sources said. Such a move often indicates that trade talks are at an advanced stage.
The Indians’ plans for Abreu, if they acquire him, are not known. Abreu fits best as a designated hitter at this stage of his career, but the Indians already have a left-handed DH, Travis Hafner.
