The LA Angels look like they’re not in playoff contention anymore, but look like they’re set to have a busy offseason.
I think they’re going to have a good winter. Arte Moreno has a lot of money to spend, and I see the Angels being pretty big buyers in the offseason.
One way to help out with that is not re-signing undeserving players, of course. There will be players that the Angels need to let go, and will. Three of them are no-brainers to me, and I’m getting ready for them to be gone when the offseason comes around.
No. 3 player whose future is doomed with the LA Angels: Junior Guerra
The LA Angels have 11 current players who will be free agents at the end of this season, and Junior Guerra is one of them.
The Angels also have many current players who have been atrocious this year, and Guerra is one of them.
Don’t let the 5-2 record fool you. Guerra has been a major disappointment for the team this year. He’s having the worst year of his career since his first taste of big league action in 2015.
He has a 5.74 ERA, a career-worst 6.2 BB/9 rate, and a 1.663 WHIP.
I don’t see any sort of reason as to why the Halos should look into re-signing him, and I think they get that.
His future with this team is absolutely doomed. I would say that it’s possible to finish strong in these last four weeks and have the Halos change their tune about him, but that’s not a realistic goal for Guerra.
