Angels acquire power hitting OF

In an effort to shore up the Angel offense, and address a long standing need for an additional power bat, the Angels acquired LF Juan Rivera in exchange for the fool's hope of Garret Anderson returning to his 2002-03 all star from.

Rivera, 27, is slugging .511, slightly higher than Vladimir Guerrero. He also brings a strong arm to the outfield and legs that, if not especially fast, are at least young and fresh. Rivera has hit righthanders as well as lefties over his career, rarely strikes out (though he'll hit into a DP or two), and should be even more productive given steady playing time.

Anderson, an old 34, should be the primary DH for the rest of the season, though Tim Salmon should still get some AB in the role.

Well, I at least hope this trade is permanant, it sure worked for the last 3 games against arch-enemy Oakland.
