Chris Iannetta C LAA Oct 02 '12
Chris Iannetta is expected to return to the Angels next season.
Iannetta has a $5 million option for 2013, and it sounds like both parties are interested in continuing the relationship. "I wanna be here," Iannetta said, with Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto adding, "It's certainly something we're interested in." Iannetta has hit .242/.335/.402 with nine homers while being limited to 78 games this season, but he's likely to earn the $5 million if he can stay off the DL in 2013.
