No. 1 perfect free agent for the LA Angels to immediately target: Max Scherzer
Max Scherzer obviously needs to be priority number one for the LA Angels this offseason. There should be no question about that.
Scherzer’s a three-time Cy Young Award winner and is pitching the best he ever has. After arriving in LA, he posted a 1.98 ERA, and an 0.820 WHIP. Both are career-bests, and so is his new and incredible 1.1 BB/9 rate.
Scherzer has been absolutely sensational for nine years now. He’s older, but that doesn’t matter. Again, pitchers at his level are not available hardly ever.
The Angels have the money, and Scherzer is rumored to really love LA. Mike Trout’s already recruiting him hard, so obviously the team doesn’t care about his age. As mentioned before, he’s improved as he’s become older this year.
This is a guy who’s even pitched at a high level in two different World Series before. He absolutely is a perfect free agent option for this team, and the Angels need to do everything they possibly can to prioritize him first.
