No. 2 dream pitcher that can quickly help fix the LA Angels’ rotation next year: Justin Verlander

Justin Verlander is likely going to be healthy for next season, and the LA Angels need to take that seriously.

Verlander is a former MVP in this league, as well as an eight-time All-Star and a two-time Cy Young award winner. He’s won an ERA Title, and even a pitching Triple Crown.

Pitchers like this aren’t available too often. If the Angels have the money, which they do, they should 100% be going after Verlander.

He’s pitched in multiple World Series, having experience in dealing with clutch situations. He’s not only pitched in our American League since his rookie season in 2005, but he’s also been pitching in our division since 2017.

He’s got the right experience against the teams we’re going to be facing, and acquiring him means that we would prevent the division rival Houston Astros from bringing him back. It would be a massive win for this club. If we can fix our rotation with one of the best starting pitchers in history, we need to be doing it.
