The LA Angels have many free agents to re-sign this offseason.

Not everybody will be re-signed, but the Angels will have a lot of money to spend this offseason. Arte Moreno is worth $3.6 billion.

A few guys, however, are looking like they may not be able to stay on this team. They’ll need to perform better if they definitely want to stick around.

No. 3 underperforming player who needs to improve to stick around with the LA Angels: Junior Guerra

Junior Guerra has come to the LA Angels this year and is having one of the worst years of his career. Guerra has a 5.92 ERA, a 1.684 WHIP, and a 6.1 BB/9 rate this season (all stats are as of September 3rd).

There hasn’t been a ton to like, and it looks like he needs a change of scenery if he wants to be successful again. If he wants to stay with the team next year, he’ll need to turn it up.

I honestly don’t even know if he wants to be an Angel again next year, as it doesn’t really look like it.

The whole situation is pretty frustrating, as he was a good pitcher in both Milwaukee and Arizona. It was supposed to be a good move to get Guerra here, but it really has not worked out well at all.

He only made $750,000 this past year, and likely won’t cost a lot for next year. If he doesn’t show improvement, however, I don’t see either side wanting to stay together.
