LA Angels: 3 assets who are losing value as trade deadline approaches
By Evan Desai
No. 1 asset who is losing value for the LA Angels as the trade deadline approaches: Jose Quintana
The Jose Quintana signing has been an utter disaster for the LA Angels.
It got so bad that he was booted from the starting rotation, and he’s been bad in the pen as well.
Quintana was for many years a quality starting pitcher in the MLB.
Now, he has a horrid 6.70 ERA and a terrible 1.814 WHIP.
He’s struck out an incredible 13 batters per nine innings, but he’s also walked 5.9 hitters per nine innings.
Nobody wants to trade for a pitcher who’s having the worst year of his career by a landslide.
He’s 32, and I don’t see anyone being really eager to go and try to fix him up at this stage.
The Angels aren’t going to get a ton from Quintana, or any of these three players.
That’s not how this deadline season was supposed to go, and could potentially take its toll on the Angels’ hopes to go on a playoff run.
