The Angels could use some of the players that got non-tendered
The Angels made some of their own moves prior to the non-tender deadline in which teams could non-tender players that they deemed too expensive to bring back and let them go off to free agency. The players that were non-tendered by the Angels all came from the bullpen which included Justin Anderson, Matt Andriese, Keynan Middleton, Hoby Milner, and Hansel Robles.
This would leave many thinking that the Angels are going to be making big moves in terms of their bullpen as they basically cleaned house and will be in the market for relief pitching. Most of these pitchers made up the bad performance that the Angels bullpen had in 2020 as all of these pitchers contributed to a horrible bullpen performance and now immediate retooling of the teams relief pitching.
The team could look to supplement some of their needs on the roster with the players highlighted in this piece as they are all non-tendered and looking for jobs this off-season.
This non-tender deadline saw some major names become free agents that teams may pick up in hopes of helping them bounce back and contribute in some ways. While Angels fans showed frustration for former gm Billy Eppler’s one year experimental moves, these players may be worth taking a look at in transforming the club in the short term and could become affordable key pieces in making the Angels contenders in the AL West once again.
