No. 2 perfect free agent for the LA Angels to immediately target: Marcus Semien
There’s not much one can say against Marcus Semien, and I want him on the LA Angels.
Maybe defense, but that’s more of an issue of his past. He’s improved defensively, and I like his ability to play both middle infield spots.
In the last two 162 game seasons, Semien has played all 162 games each. He clubbed 33 home runs in 2019, and 45 this year. Driving in over 100 runs this year, he also scored 115.
In 2019, he had a .892 OPS and he had a .873 OPS this season. Coming off of an All-Star season, he’s peaking at the right time for the Angels to swoop in and sign him.
His price is going to be high, but not as high as some of these other free agent shortstops like Carlos Correa.
We need shortstop help, and free agency is an option for us. This guy was third in the Majors in fWAR at 6.6. Semien has turned into a star.
