In the ongoing search for a decent RH bat off the bench, I wonder what people think about Angels OF Juan Rivera? The guy is completely buried in Anaheim, in his prime, and PECOTA has his WM at .280/.332/.441, solid for a 4th OF. His career line is .289/.338/.470. Thoughts?

Reggie Willits might even be a better option given that he's stuck in AAA and would be a very capable leadoff guy. Seems like there's a fit with the Angels there somewhere.

I thought about him, but the Angels are pretty adamant that he is not available for trade, despite his reduced playing time.

Hmmm... they appear to be short a Juan Castro. Do we have one of those lying around?

well, I've never heard of this Jeff Klepinter guy and he apparently can play several infield positions... ;)
