According to Jayson Stark of ESPN, the Angels are in “serious discussions” with free agent and former Yankee, Hideki Matsui. Buster Olney adds to the report, claiming that the Angels have offered Matsui a deal worth about $6.5M. If the Angels sign Matsui, he will ultimately assume the role once had by Vladimir Guerrero as the team’s designated hitter (Guerrero is currently a free agent, as well). A week ago, Mike DiGiovanni noted that Angels GM Tony Reagins expressed an interest in Matsui, although Ken Davidoff recently reported that the Yankees and Matsui were likely to reunite later this winter, which doesn’t appear to be the case anymore (if Starks’ report is accurate).
With Boston close to signing John Lackey, Godzilla to the Angels would be a double whammy for Yankee fans.
UPDATE (6:34 pm) — Done deal, according to Marc Carig. Matsui and the Angels have reached an agreement. No word yet on the contract’s details. Sad day for ‘Deki fans.
