No. 2 relief pitcher for LA Angels to target at MLB trade deadline: Kendall Graveman

Kendall Graveman has been going crazy lately, but the Seattle Mariners are in a situation that the LA Angels have also found themselves in.

They are too good right now to plan on selling, but not good enough to where they know they’ll be buying.

The Mariners likely don’t know what to do with their potential trade pieces. If they do sell, however, let’s call and ask them about Graveman.

Graveman hasn’t allowed an earned run in any of his last seven outings, and has only given up three all year. He’s pitched in 25 games, and has an insane ERA of 0.95.

This is a no-brainer. Graveman has never been better, and has a superstar 0.600 WHIP to go along with that ridiculous ERA right now. Almost nobody’s hotter, and if the Mariners slip up in these next couple weeks, they may be down to trade him.

They could get a lot for him, and the Angels could steal a playoff spot with him in the staff.
