3. Dee Gordon
The Los Angeles Angels need another infielder, in particular, someone that can play either third or second base. Last winter, the Angels brought in Ian Kinsler to play second and Zack Cozart to play third. Kinsler was never expected to be a huge asset but Cozart was coming off of a career year.
Kinsler was eventually traded to the Boston Red Sox after being lackluster in Anaheim and Cozart never came close to his 2017 self. Cozart only played 58 games last season due to injury and posted a .219 batting average and .658 OPS. Cozart had the sixth-worst OPS among third basemen with 220 plate appearances.
Right now, Cozart is listed as the starting third baseman and second baseman on the Angels’ depth chart on MLB.com. Obviously, this is far from the finished product but it is also obvious that the Angels could use improvements at second base.
Gordon would be an improvement and would be a nice bat to add into this lineup. Gordon would be a nice leadoff bat to get on and get in scoring position by stealing bases. While he had a down year last season, at his best, Gordon will hit over .300 and can snag 50 bases.
Having that on top of the order ahead of the heavy hitters in Trout, Upton and Simmons would be huge in getting a postseason spot.
