Garrett Atkins, the new Robb Quinlan?

21

With Colorado having non-tendered Garrett Atkins, anyone think it's likely that the Angels buy low on the local boy? Atkins had a simply awful 2009, but before that he had seasonal averages of 20+ HRs and 100 RBIs, with decent average and on-base skills. He's always had problems outside of Coors Field, however, and his terrible year last year is largely traceable to a decreasing line drive rate and a loss of power. OTOH, he plays the corner infield positions, and is a homeboy from Orange, graduating from Irvine High School and UCLA. The only in-house options for a reserve at the corners are Freddy Sandoval and Matt Brown at the moment -- perhaps serviceable but with limited upside. Think Atkins will be in the mix?
