No. 2 trade target for the LA Angels if the team decides to be buyers: John Means

John Means is coming back from injury at the perfect time for the LA Angels to make this trade.

Means has dealt with injuries this year, but has now made a couple of rehab starts, and is looking like he’ll be back in the very near future.

Right now is exactly when the Angels need to kick the tires on the left-hander. The Orioles will be sellers, as they have no chance of competing this season.

Means is having a phenomenal year, putting up a 2.28 ERA while he’s been on the field (12 starts). He only walks 1.6 batters every nine innings, and has been an All-Star before.

He has a nice pedigree and is throwing darts all over the zone this year. His 0.831 WHIP is incredible, and would be one of the two best pitchers on the Angels’ staff if he came over.
