Perry Minasian and the LA Angels need to be watching the MLB Postseason very closely.

There are so many great players playing October baseball right now, and the Halos need to be thinking about which of these players are available.

Some of these guys are perfect fits for our club. We’ve got a few major needs on this team, but they can be fixed with some of these players we’ve been watching on the national stage recently.

No. 3 player on a postseason roster who is a perfect fit for the LA Angels: Kenley Jansen

Kenley Jansen fits a need that the LA Angels certainly have in relief pitching.

Jansen is one of the better relievers in our game. He’s won two NL Reliever of the Year awards, he’s been an All-Star three times, and he’s had 38 or more saves five times in his career.

This year, he was great overall. He recorded 38 saves and a 2.22 ERA. He gave up just 4.7 hits per nine innings, and has recorded a career ERA of 2.37 with a career K/9 of 13.

He’s had an amazing career, and has experience being both a closer and a set-up man. We need a set-up man after we re-sign Raisel Iglesias, and he fits the bill. For now, Jansen will look to continue to contribute to his team’s playoff run in the NLCS.
