No. 2 buy-low candidate the LA Angels can sign for a 1-year deal: Chasen Shreve

Chasen Shreve is another veteran bullpen pitcher that the LA Angels can bring in for cheap. And believe me when I say that. The guy has never made more than $1.5 million in a season before.

And to be fair, he played really well this year, so he'll want more. Recording a 3.20 ERA this season to go along with a 132 ERA+, he was much better than a lot of people gave him credit for.

But that's the thing, his numbers overall weren't good enough (4.5 BB/9 and 7.2 K/9) for him to be able to demand a contract much higher than that $1.5 million he got last season.

He still prevented runs from coming across the plate, however, so he's worth the Angels signing him. Some of his numbers not being very good will decrease his price, but should not be discouraging enough for the Angels to pick him up.

These past two years have been good from Shreve, posting a 1.230 WHIP in that time.

Shreve played in the AL for over three years, and will make a nice transition back to it if he's with the Halos. His services would make our team better.
