Is Santana Worth Trading?

I'm still confused about this, and the impending offseason still has yet to help me figure what the Angels intentions are with Ervin Santana. Someone just noted that Santana was moved to the 'untouchable' list, yet every media outlet I see says that he's going to be traded and its likely that the Angels will sign Barry Zito to be the other starter in the rotation. I've also seen a few idiots that think the Angels would trade McPherson/Aybar for Cabrera (Orioles), but that's a seperate side note.

My question is that, what is he really worth to the Angels? His talent sure has a high ceiling, but is it worth trading a possible future cy young winner to get someone like, ugh Tejada? And why would we really need to sign Zito, especially since Stoneman likes to go in route of FA signings for our impact bats?

The whole issue confuses me, does anyone have anything to enlighten me on the situation?
