BALTIMORE (AP) Unwilling to shuffle the current roster or depart with young talent, the Los Angeles Angels stayed inactive on the final day of the non-waiver trade deadline.
While AL West-leading Oakland obtained left-handed starter Jon Lester, the second-place Angels appeared OK with the prospect of playing a pat hand down the stretch.
"We're very happy with the way our pitching staff lines up," general manager Jerry Dipoto said. "Our bullpen is deeper and much improved over the last month-and-a-half. Our starting rotation has been steady throughout."
