The Los Angeles Angels continue their aggressive approach to the offseason by acquiring Ian Kinsler from the Detroit Tigers for two minor leaguers Wednesday night, according to ESPN.

The Tigers received 18-year-old right-hander Wilkel Hernandez and 23-year-old outfielder Troy Montgomery in the trade.

Kinsler hit a career-worst .236 with 22 home runs and 52 RBIs in 139 games last season for Detroit last season and is due to earn $11 million next season in the final year of his contract.

After landing two-way star Shohei Ohtani, the Angels bolstered their defense and brought a proven veteran into the fold with the acquisition of Kinsler.

Even though Kinsler had a down year in 2017, it is believed that he will be able to bounce back in a better situation in Los Angeles.
