3. The Angels could trade for Reds starter Luis Castillo.

Is this the year that the Los Angeles Angels finally land an ace? For years, the Angels have failed to address their starting pitching. Maybe adding Reds starter Luis Castillo will be the answer.

Mike Trout is one of the best players to ever have graced a major league field, and yet, the slugger is always on the outside looking in when the postseason rolls around.

The three-time MVP has just one postseason appearance in 11 years, and that was all the way back in 2014.

Trout played just three games, hit .083 and has just one hit in the playoffs. Baseball fans have been robbed of the opportunity to see Trout find success in the postseason.

Furthermore, Shohei Ohtani may be the best player in the game today. The two-way star is likely to take home AL MVP honors later this month.

The Angels should be one of the first teams to give the Reds a call and see what it would take to pry Luis Castillo away from Cincinnati.

Like the Yankees, the Angels don't have the deepest farm system, but some of their young major league talent could be intriguing to Nick Krall and the Reds front office.

I would be shocked if the Los Angeles Angels aren't among the teams looking to add Luis Castillo to their 2022 roster.
