No. 1 colossal free agent pitching name Jim Bowden has LA Angels among best fits for: Ryan Tepera

Ryan Tepera is a very underrated reliever who the LA Angels should be prioritizing on their free agent targets list.

Tepera is coming off of a year where he posted a 2.79 ERA to go along with a 0.880 WHIP and a 155 ERA+. Tepera finished the year in the AL and has pitched almost his entire career in the AL. He can pitch in our league and pitch well.

The Halos had one of the worst bullpens in the American League and Tepera's consistency is important. Tepera has never made more than $1.525 million in a season, so he won't demand a lot of money from the Angels.

He's had a total of one season with an ERA over 3.92 and has allowed just a .209 batting average over the course of his seven-year career.

The Halos have made a few moves to get pitching this offseason. They haven't made enough, however. Luckily, there's still time left.
