Lukewarm Stove: Angels Still Looking at Derrek Lee

Chicago Cubs

Following their trade for starter Dan Haren, the Los Angeles Angels are setting their sites on another need: a middle of the order bat, and preferably one that can play first base.

Sources said Sunday night — after the Haren trade — that the Angels haven’t halted their pursuit of a power bat.

Among the hitters they are monitoring: Garrett Jones of the Pirates and Derrek Lee of the Cubs.

Sources could not confirm if the Angels are involved in active talks for either Jones or Lee. FOX Sports on MSN.

Derrek Lee has chosen a good time to get hot. He’s riding an 8-game hitting streak, and is starting to look like the hitter he usually is.
