Tanner Roark is a wild-card candidate that the Angels could acquire for a little less than the rest of the pitchers mentioned. Roark is 70-60 in his career with a 3.63 ERA and a 1.226 WHIP.  Roark is a 32-year old who has good stuff and just plain knows how to pitch.  He may not be the ace that the Angels are looking for, but he would be a good second or third starter.

This season Roark has a 6-6 record with a 3.95 ERA and a 1.374 WHIP.  Roark would not cost as much as he would be a free agent after the 2019 season.  The Angels could probably get him for maybe a Jahmai Jones and maybe Aaron Hernandez.  If the Angels could resign him it would be great

Next. Billly Eppler is the Angels hope for building a championship team.

If the Angels do decide to play Let’s Make a Deal it could help boost the team this season and hopefully for years to come. Hopefully it will not come back to haunt them later on.
