No. 2 upcoming free agent in World Series that the LA Angels need to sign: Zack Greinke

The LA Angels need to go and acquire Zack Greinke again.

They don’t need to sign him to be their Ace, and won’t. He’s not the pitcher he once was back when he played for us, but the six-time All-Star is still one of the more trusted pitchers in the AL. He has one of the best resumes in the Big Leagues.

He’s still got some left in the tank, as he posted a 1.170 WHIP this season and walked just 1.9 batters per nine innings.

Signing Greinke would also obviously get him out of our division rivals’ hands. He’s of course pitched in the AL West for a while now, and has experience going up against these hitters.

He fit well with the Angels the last time he was over here, and as a seasoned veteran, can probably mentor all the young arms we have coming up in this organization.
