No. 1 player whose future is doomed with the LA Angels: Kurt Suzuki
Kurt Suzuki doesn’t have much of a place on the LA Angels anymore if we’re being honest.
Suzuki is only around to catch Shohei Ohtani, but Max Stassi proved that he can catch Ohtani just fine.
We’ll need a backup catcher, of course, but I’d rather have it not be Suzuki. He’s 38, and is only getting older of course.
The Angels are going to try to make splashes this offseason. I think they’ll want to go after a catcher who’s young and has potential to fulfill, rather than go with an old player who clearly has nothing left in the tank.
Suzuki hit .217/.286/.321 with four home runs and 13 RBI in 61 games.
He might as well just not go up to the batter’s box and take the out.
He’s scored 14 runs all year. He’s not producing, and is the definition of an easy out.
The Angels are looking to sign some dudes this offseason. Suzuki isn’t a dude. Neither is Bundy these days, and the same can be said for Guerra.
It’s going to be a great offseason for us, and partly because these three will likely be gone.
