No. 2 player the LA Angels should try to keep this offseason: Alex Cobb
Alex Cobb is a good ballplayer, and he’s right back to where he was now that he got his needed change of scenery with the LA Angels.
After a few years where Cobb didn’t look like himself in Baltimore, he really looked a lot better with LA.
Cobb posted a 3.76 ERA and a 1.264 WHIP with the Halos this year. He unfortunately could only go 18 starts this year due to an injury, but he pitched well when he had the chance.
Cobb isn’t an Ace, and he’s honestly not even that close to that level. That being said, he’s a good number three option, and a great number four option.
He’s someone that the Angels need to prioritize bringing back. He made $15 million this year, and will likely cost even more than that this offseason. He’s worth it, though, as we know what we’re getting from him.
There’s going to be plenty of free agents currently on this team who we’re not going to bring back, so we’ll probably have the money to spend on Cobb as well as some other arms to bolster the starting rotation.
