With the 2017 MLB season officially in the books for the LA Angels, let’s preview their 2018 starting rotation.

The LA Angels’ 2017 season was a roller coaster to say the least. At one point in the season, they were six games over the .500 mark with a shoddy starting rotation trending up. But, they eventually came back down to earth and settled with a 80-82 record, diminishing their playoff hopes with only a few games left on the season.

However, with 2018 comes excitement. Especially for the Angels’ rotation that will seem to provide some depth next year looking on.

While some players like Garrett Richards, Tyler Skaggs and Matt Shoemaker will be obvious pieces in the Angels’ rotation next year, it’s the back-end of the rotation that Angels fans should be excited for.

Parker Bridwell, J.C. Ramirez and Alex Meyer all proved last season that they can be capable starters given their injuries. Since the Angels’ rotation will consist of five starters, Spring training next season will be heated.

Without further delay, let’s preview the Los Angeles Angels’ 2018 starting rotation.
