No. 4 MLB star you forgot was an LA Angel: Zack Greinke

Zack Greinke came to the LA Angels via trade in 2012, and he shoved for the team. Posting a 6-2 record, he was a nice boost to our squad and recorded a nice 3.53 ERA to go along with a solid 1.187 WHIP. Greinke had a 108 ERA+ with the Halos, but seems to be remembered for every team he played for other than the Angels.

And I get it. He played for us for just 13 starts, and had so many great moments with other teams. He won a Cy Young early in his career in 2009 with the Royals. He won an ERA title that year, as well as one in 2015 with the Dodgers.

He's never quite got to 20 wins, but he's been an All-Star six times before. He had three of them in Arizona and two of them across the Freeway.

Greinke is still looking for a home for next year, and will be gobbled up once this lockout ends. He won't be an Angel, however, as he wants to go to a National League team. A veteran guy, he'll bring a lot of valuable experience to wherever he goes.
