More from Halo Hangout

The LA Angels have not had an amazing team the past few seasons. However, there are a few former Halos on the market who could help the team’s rotation and bullpen next season.

Writing this sentence has become painfully repetitive, but the LA Angels have struggled with injuries for the last handful of seasons, and this offseason there is a chance for the team to add help in the former Halo hurlers.

Next season, the only pitchers who have cemented their spot in the rotation are Tyler Skaggs and Andrew Heaney. After them, Matt Shoemaker and Jaime Barria will probably start Spring Training with expectations of being in the rotation. Nick Tropeano, Alex Meyer, and JC Ramirez all spent most of if not all of 2018 injured, but are all planning to be ready for Spring Training (a recent setback could mean a late start for Meyer, however).

For obvious reasons (lack of durability and star power), the Angels are going to be players for pitching this offseason. The Angels brought back former outfielder Peter Bourjos on Friday, so why not bring back a few more guys who have helped the Halos in years past? We will discuss two starters and two relievers, all of whom were once called Angels in their careers.
