Angels Trade Brian Fuentes to Twins for PTBNL

As reported and confirmed in numerous media, the Angels have traded closer Brian Fuentes to the Minnesota Twins for a player to be named later. Here on Halos Heaven, EPIC DEAN posted the FanShot Scoop.

As reported in numerous media outlets, the Angels have zeroed in on a few prospects with upside in the Twins organization and are holding meetings with scouts to decide on the player.

Here is a recent look at the TWINS minor league system - does anyone there catch your eye?

The semi-reliable Fuentes tossed 93.1 innings as an Angel. He ranks 4th all time as an Angels reliever with 71 saves and his 48 Saves in 2009 is the 2nd most in franchise history.

Jordan Walden and his 101 MPH heat would seem the logical choice to be closer, so of course the Angels will be going with Fernando Rodney in save situations for the remainder of the season.
