No. 3 biggest question of the offseason for the LA Angels: Who are our options for starting pitching in free agency?

I’ve already laid out Greinke, Verlander, and Scherzer as starting pitchers available this offseason for the LA Angels.

There are so many other arms available, however. Even Clayton Kershaw is available in free agency this offseason.

The Giants have to pick up their $22 million option to bring back Johnny Cueto, but Kevin Gausman can be signed away if he chooses to go elsewhere.

All of these guys are going to cost a lot of money. Marcus Stroman, another free agent, would have a high price tag too. It feels like the prices are going to be high on more starters than usual.

Even some of the pitchers who aren’t making a ton this year, such as Corey Kluber or Robbie Ray, could end up demanding a big payday this offseason.

The Angels have a lot of money to spend this winter, and have actually already spent a decent amount of money for next year’s roster. They haven’t, however, spent a ton on pitching. Improving the pitching on this team is long overdue, and needs to happen this offseason.
