With both Ervin Santana and Kelvim Escobar out for at least May, do the Angels need to sign a free agent pitcher?
With Santana and Kelvim Escobar both on the DL to start the season, one things is now clear. The Angelsmust make a move.
With two of their starters sidelined, young and inexperienced right-handers Dustin Moseley and Nick Adenhart will be taking the hill for the Halos. And to be quite frank, I don’t trust either of these guys.
Should they sign Pedro Martinez?
However, I’m quite intrigued by the idea of signing former Boston Red Sox and New York Met Pedro Martinez, who recently threw three shutout innings for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic on Saturday. The past three seasons in New York have been a struggle for Martinez, as he has battled through numerous injuries. But, when healthy, there is no question, that Pedro is one of baseball’s better pitchers. Just a few years back in 2005, he posted an impressive 15 win season with the Mets, while also recording an impressive 2.82 ERA. I don’t think it would be a stretch to suggest that if healthy, Pedro could certainly revert back to his pristine 2004 or 2005 forms in some capacity.
Am I crazy or does Pedro to the Angels make some sense?
