Scioscia mum on prospect to be acquired

Scioscia mum on prospect to be acquired

|
ANAHEIM -- Angels manager Mike Scioscia discussed the process of obtaining a player to be named later on Sunday, as the Angels still have until Oct. 15 to receive a player for Brian Fuentes, who was traded to the Twins on Friday.

"It's usually a player that's picked from a pool of players that's been agreed upon. So it's just the timing is why it's structured the way it is," Scioscia said. "You can evaluate the player or already have one picked so there's a lot of different reasons why."

Scioscia, though, wouldn't talk specifics about the prospect the Angels will acquire in their deal with the Twins, but did say his club has traded a lot of young pitching in acquiring players such as Scott Kazmir and Alberto Callaspo the past two seasons.

"I don't want to comment on anything that's not out there," Scioscia said. "But I will say that we have moved some pitching potential in our system the last couple years, but we also see a lot of kids who are young moving through our system that we're excited about. So there's always a premium to develop your own pitchers."
