Yanks, Jays interested in Kendrick; Angels on fence

The Angels are willing to trade second baseman Howie Kendrick or third baseman David Freese for a pitcher, but that doesn’t make a deal inevitable.

CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports the Angels are more likely to keep Kendrick than trade him.

The Yankees and Blue Jays have been in contact with the Angels about the second baseman, per Heyman.

Kendrick, 31, is coming off a season in which he hit .293/.347/.397 with 75 RBIs and 14 stolen bases. Because the Angels also have Gordon Beckham and Grant Green, they’d be willing to trade Kendrick for a rotation upgrade.
