The LA Angels acquired one of the prized possessions of the offseason early in Noah Syndergaard, and then acquired Aaron Loup.

That was about it, however, as their remaining acquisitions weren't high-profile moves. As far as re-signings go, they re-signed their one major free agent in Raisel Iglesias, but didn't make any more inspiring moves as we entered the lockout. Therefore, one may expect the Angels to make a huge signing or two once the hot stove is resumed.

Sports Illustrated doesn't see it that way at all. 26 of their top 50 free agents have already been signed, so they decided to take a look at the remaining 24 as well as the next best free agent, and decide on where they now predict them to land. The Angels were not listed as landing spots for any of them.

Sports Illustrated expects the LA Angels to have a poor finish to their offseason.

If the LA Angels don't land any of their top 25 remaining free agents, the fans will likely be livid. The Halos were originally expected by many all over the fan base and everyone all over the media to improve the pitching staff this offseason, and aren't even close to fielding a reliable pitching staff yet.

There are still lots of really good relievers available, and a couple really good starters still un-signed. Unfortunately, the Angels aren't expected to make any magic happen here. Just a few days earlier, the Angels were reported to be interested in Carlos Rodon.

Next. The Halos could want Seiya Suzuki later in the offseason. dark

SI has rained all over that parade, as they have Rodon heading to the Boston Red Sox. Hopefully, this was just a slip up by the great folks over at Sports Illustrated, and a couple of these guys end up signing with Anaheim.
