4) LA Angels dream trade deadline pitching target: Jason Foley

The Tigers have a bunch of relievers the Angels should consider targeting. Chasen Shreve and Jose Cisnero would be solid rentals, while Alex Lange and Tyler Holton would be excellent long-term pieces to acquire. One player not mentioned there, but that has been mentioned in general rumors, is Jason Foley.

The 27-year-old was solid in 60 games for Detroit last season, but has really broken out this season. He has a 2.33 ERA in 46 appearances and 46.1 innings pitched, recording 18 holds and four saves while only blowing two.

Foley has been excellent at inheriting runners, stranding them at a 76% rate, while proving to be effective against both righties and lefties.

He's a guy who induces a ton of ground balls, and has done a nice job limiting walks. The best part about Foley is he keeps the ball in the yard at an elite level. He has yet to allow a single longball this season.

Foley is under team control for another five years so the likelihood of him actually being moved is slim, but he'd be a great get for the present and the future if the Angels were to pull this off.
