Angels visited with Aramis Ramirez, likely to make offer

From FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal comes word that members of the Angels’ front office paid a visit recently to free agent third baseman Aramis Ramirez and an offer is likely coming soon.

Ramirez struggled with injuries and inconsistency during the latter part of his tenure in Chicago, but he posted a bounceback .871 OPS with 26 home runs and 93 RBI in 149 games this year and he’s by far the top third baseman on the market this winter.

A-Ram is also drawing free agent interest from the Tigers and Brewers, and we’d expect a few other clubs to join the fray at next week’s annual Winter Meetings in Dallas, Texas.

The Angels are unlikely to get a quick decision from the 33-year-old once they make their offer.
