The Los Angeles Angels are expected to trade second baseman Howie Kendrick this offseason, CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports. Kendrick is expected to be shipped out this winter in hopes of acquiring young pitching.

The Angels were close to dealing Kendrick to the Los Angeles Dodgers at the trading deadline but the Angels decided to hold on to Kendrick in hopes of recouping a greater haul in the offseason. Heyman cites outfielders Mark Trumbo and Peter Bourjos as others who may draw strong trade interest but the Angels will be less inclined to trade them.

Kendrick landed on the disabled list last month with a hyperextended left knee. Before the injury, the 30-year-old second baseman was hitting .301 with 11 home runs and 47 RBI. Kendrick has one year and $9.5 million left on his current contract.
