In his nine MLB seasons, Walker possesses a slash line of .272/.341/.437 with 130 home runs, 522 RBI, and 521 runs scored.

Walker could provide a nice veteran presence at the second base spot. With Josh Hamilton‘s contract finally off the Angels’ books, they have some money to spend in free agency.

Walker isn’t the only free agent that the Angels could eye.

Howie Kendrick

A reunion between Howie Kendrick and the Los Angeles Angels could happen next season. Last season, Kendrick played for both the Phillies and the Nationals.

They converted him from a second baseman to an outfielder. The Angels could reconvert him to a second baseman.

Kendrick has a career slash line of .291/.334/.421 with 104 home runs, 636 RBI, and 703 runs. He made the All-Star team back in 2007.

The 34-year-old played with the Los Angeles Angels for nine seasons. He was a fan favorite as an Angel and could be a cheap, impactful bat if the Angels decide to sign him in free agency.

The possibilities are endless for the Los Angeles Angels at second base for 2018, a dire need for them, to say the least.
