Angels:

Extremely unreliable rotation. Projected Rotation

Projected Rotation

Player POS IP W L ERA WHIP K BB SwStrike Fastball
1 Matt Shoemaker SP 165 9 9 3.71 1.22 147 35 13.1% 91.5 mph
2 Ricky Nolasco SP 171 9 10 4.05 1.34 128 41 9.2% 90.4 mph
3 Tyler Skaggs SP 138 8 7 3.39 1.25 131 48 8.1% 92.8 mph
4 Garrett Richards SP 161 10 8 3.41 1.20 145 58 11.2% 95.6 mph
5 Alex Meyer SP 125 6 8 3.96 1.36 133 61 8.8% 95.2 mph

That is a very ugly rotation imo. On any given night they might have the lesser SP on the mound. Shoemaker has the talent but can you trust the guy to pitch the entire season? Never has pitched more than 160 in a season and he is a 1.3 WHIP guy so he allows a lot of baserunners. Remember this is their ace lol.

Then you have Nolasco who is a gas can, Skaggs with his 4ish ERA and non platoon pitching (lefties hit .299 vs him last 3 years)

I do like Garrett Richards. But who knows what to expect from him and he allows his fair share of baserunners too.

This entire rotation is a mess.

Projected Lineup

1 Yunel Escobar 3B 497 62 6 43 1 0.300 0.352 0.388 0.740 37 58
2 Kole Calhoun OF 588 86 20 75 3 0.265 0.325 0.432 0.757 49 118
3 Mike Trout OF 557 113 34 97 21 0.307 0.404 0.571 0.975 83 123
4 Albert Pujols DH 525 69 29 95 4 0.261 0.315 0.465 0.780 39 58
5 C.J. Cron 1B 550 62 22 85 4 0.267 0.309 0.449 0.758 28 104
6 Cameron Maybin OF 436 66 6 50 18 0.273 0.335 0.378 0.713 39 80
7 Danny Espinosa 2B 509 68 21 62 9 0.220 0.296 0.387 0.683 42 146
8 Andrelton Simmons SS 521 53 5 48 8 0.269 0.312 0.349 0.661 31 44
9 Martin Maldonado C 275 27 8 28 0 0.207 0.300 0.327 0.627 32 65

lineup… Actually pretty damn good. Addition of Maybin makes this a very dangerous lineup. Especially 1-6.

I am a big fan of Bedrosian. Not sure he will be closing, but he could be lights out if given the chance. Street is very unreliable and doesn’t strike anyone out but the Angels have a very good defense.

Shaky rotation, Questionable BP with upside, Lineup that is very dangerous 1-6.

No playoffs obviously with this rotation. Can see a lot of high scoring games. Overs.
