Report: Angels, Rays discussing deal involving RHP James Shields

Tim Kurkjian of ESPN.com reports that the Los Angeles Angels have discussed a deal with the Tampa Bay Rays that would send righthander James Shields out west for centerfielder Peter Bourjos and catcher Hank Conger.

Kurkjian's source said that Angels righthander Ervin Santana could also be included in the trade.

The Angels haven't gotten everything they thought they would get out of their top four starters, with Dan Haren and Santana having struggled. Shields has had a down year (8-6, 4.39 ERA), but he'd won at least 11 games and pitched at least 195 innings in five straight seasons entering 2012.

As for the Rays, Kurkjian writes that they likely view Bourjos as the heir to B.J. Upton, who probably will leave as a free agent after the season.
