According to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman, the Los Angeles Angels are interested in signing free agent third baseman Mike Moustakas. He is a Southern California native.
He spent this past season with the Kansas City Royals and the Milwaukee Brewers. He was traded to Milwaukee before the trade deadline in July.
If he signs with the Angels, he would give the team a left-handed bat. In addition, his potential signing with the team, would likely move Zack Cozart to second base.
Besides interest from the Angels, he also has interest from the Brewers and the Philadelphia Phillies. The San Diego Padres have also expressed interest in his service.
Moustakas is one of several big-name free agents, who has not signed with a team yet.

In 98 games with the Royals, he had a .249 batting average with 20 home runs and 62 RBIs. He also had 21 doubles and one triple on 94 hits in 378 at-bats, while scoring 46 runs.
