The Los Angeles Angels have limped to a 37-52 record at the midpoint part of the season, and the rotation has been one of the team’s weakest points.

The Los Angeles Angels might have been a playoff contender, had it not been for a plague of injuries that hit the team early in the season, causing a frustrating pattern of “next man up” mantras from team management.

The Halos entered Spring Training with too many starters, and were faced with difficult decisions in late March as they set their Opening Day rotation.

But when fate intervened, it decided all of the starters that had been competing in early spring for spots on the team would get opportunities to pitch for the Angels in later months anyways.

At the same time, other pitchers who weren’t sure they would have an opportunity to pitch this season at all ended up becoming parts of the rotation as well.

Each starter that participated in the first half of the season contributed to the team, some in good ways and some in bad.

Here are players grades for each starter that was in the rotation at some point this season.
