LA Angels: 3 assets who are losing value as trade deadline approaches
By Evan Desai
No. 2 asset who is losing value for the LA Angels as the trade deadline approaches: Dylan Bundy
To say Dylan Bundy has regressed for the LA Angels this season would be an understatement.
Bundy went from having a 3.29 ERA for the Halos last year to a 6.69 this year.
His WHIP has gone from 1.036 to 1.414 this season. He’s walked more batters per nine innings and struck out less batters per nine innings.
What are we going to get from a pitcher who’s getting significantly worse by the start?
Nobody is going to want to give up very much for that. Bundy has not been a big league pitcher this year, and if somebody wants him, they’d probably rather wait till the offseason when he is a free agent.
Nobody is going to value him as a potential asset for a playoff race. I doubt the Halos do, either, and that’s the worst part.
If we can’t trade him, we’re going to let him go somewhere else in free agency this offseason and get absolutely nothing in return.
Bundy was expected to be a valuable trade chip to a contending team, but that is not possible at this point.
