Don’t expect the Angels to make a run at David Price

If the Rays do decide to trade David Price before the July 31 deadline don’t count on the Angels being his new home, at least according to general manager Jerry Dipoto.

Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times writes that the Angels “long have known they do not have the elite prospects necessary to acquire Price” and Dipoto says he’s “not looking to move pieces from our major league club.”

Dipoto isn’t hiding the fact that he wants to acquire pitching help–perhaps for the rotation and the bullpen–but it sounds like Price is above his price range.
