1st move the LA Angels desperately need to make: Add a proven closer

LA Angels’ Raisel Iglesias was dominant in 2021 for the Angels, tying Josh Hader at 5th in the MLB with 34 saves.

The Angels had lacked production from the closer position for a number of years. That is until Angels General Manager Perry Minasian pulled off a fleece of a trade, sending Reliever Noe Ramirez and cash to the Reds for Closer Raisel Iglesias in the 2021 offseason. Now a free agent, it is obvious amongst Angels fans that Raisel needs to be back in an Angels uniform to provide much-needed assurance at the back end of their bullpen. However, Iglesias or not, the Angels need to lock up another back-end of the bullpen guy. Other notable free agent options include Collin McHugh, Kenley Jansen, Ryan Tepera, and Kendall Graveman.
