    Source: #Angels to trade 1B/DH Kendrys Morales to #Mariners for LHP Jason Vargas. Believe Vargas was college teammate of Jered Weaver.

    Angels trade Morales for Vargas …
    The Angels, a source told MLB.com, have traded designated hitter Kendrys Morales to the Mariners in exchange for starting pitcher Jason Vargas.

    Vargas, a 29-year-old left-hander, went 14-11 with a 3.85 ERA in 33 starts last year. Morales batted .273 with 22 homers and 73 RBIs in 2012, his first season removed from a couple of ankle surgeries.

    More coming on MLB.com soon.

    Morales trade could let #Angels play Trumbo at DH, with Bourjos in CF flanked by Trout and Hamilton. Huge plus for Weaver, Blanton.

    Shrewd move by #Angels, trading Kendrys Morales to #Mariners for Jason Vargas. It'll be interesting to see if this means Peter Bourjos stays

    Alden Gonzalez ‏@Alden_Gonzalez
    No money changing hands in this deal. Vargas projected by @mlbtraderumors to make $7.4M in final arbitration year; Kendrys: $4.8M. #Angels

    Kendrys morales to seattle for vargas a done deal. @Alden_Gonzalez said 1st
    https://twitter.com/JonHeymanCBS

    Done deal. Welcome to LA Jason Vargas!

    Not liking this deal tho

    Mike DiGiovanna ‏@MikeDiGiovanna
    #Angels trade of Morales should free up spot for CF Peter Bourjos. Hamilton/Trumbo likely split time between RF/DH. Trout to play LF/CF.
    https://twitter.com/MikeDiGiovanna

    Ken Rosenthal ‏@Ken_Rosenthal
    Vargas fits description of steady innings eater that #Angels wanted for Morales. He averaged 204 innings over past 3 seasons…

    His ERA-plus over that span was 96, just below league-average. Flyball pitcher who will benefit from #Angels' strong defensive outfield.
    https://twitter.com/Ken_Rosenthal

    There's one positive.

    Bill Shaikin ‏@BillShaikin
    Vargas in 7 career games at Angel Stadium: 3-1, 2.27.
    https://twitter.com/BillShaikin

    Alden Gonzalez ‏@Alden_Gonzalez
    So it looks like #Angels have that ideal scenario: Trout-Bourjos-Hamilton OF; Trumbo at DH, with Pujols & Hamilton also getting AB's there.
    https://twitter.com/Alden_Gonzalez

    Alden Gonzalez ‏@Alden_Gonzalez
    Rotation is now Weaver-Wilson-Vargas-Hanson-Blanton, with Williams likely the LR and Richards starting in AAA. #Angels
    https://twitter.com/Alden_Gonzalez

    Mike DiGiovanna ‏@MikeDiGiovanna
    Initial response to Morales/Vargas swap: Seems to be a trade that could truly help both #Angels and #Mariners.
    https://twitter.com/MikeDiGiovanna

    Bill Shaikin ‏@BillShaikin
    Jason Vargas: 217 IP last year. C.J. Wilson led #Angels with 202.
    https://twitter.com/BillShaikin

    Mike DiGiovanna ‏@MikeDiGiovanna
    Vargas went 14-11 with 3.85 ERA in 33 GS for #Mariners, 141 Ks, 55 Ws in 217 1/3 IP. Entering final year of arbitration. #Angels
    https://twitter.com/MikeDiGiovanna

    Bob Nightengale ‏@BNightengale
    The #Angels may go with a four-man outfield with Trout, Hamilton,Trumbo and Bourjos, and rotate the DH slot among them, with Pujols.

    I was referring more to Morales' performance than the Mariners success.

    Mike DiGiovanna ‏@MikeDiGiovanna
    Down-road benefit for #Angels: They'll have better chance of signing SoCal kid Vargas as FA than Boras-client Morales, who wants to play 1B.

    Jon Heyman ‏@JonHeymanCBS
    Happiest person about trade is peter bourjos. He now is angels cf. Trout moves to lf, trumbo the dh. Best lineup in ball

    Well, he's a lefty. That's all the good I can come up with for this. Even at his best, he'd still only be kind of decent. Midas well just given Richards the chance.

    Meh. Not my favorite deal in the world. But we got pretty fair value for Morales. Lets see how many home runs Vargas can give up!!
