Angels Week 6 Rankings - Pitchers

The good, the bad, and the meh - Alex Meyer rising

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Oakland Athletics Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

I’ll cover the entire 40 man roster and will split it between position players and pitchers (generally 20 or so guys on each list). Each week the list will change based on the past week’s performance - but also taking into account their performance year to date.


Alex Meyer proved the skeptics wrong - at last for last week, and the starting pitching staff was strong yet again with a 3.32 ERA, good for 3rd in the AL. The Angels bullpen was pretty solid as well with their 2.21 ERA, but they also lost two games. Overall, the Angels pitching staff had a 2.97 ERA which was second only to the Blue Jays last week. They continue to struggle with allowing homeruns (led by Nolasco, Meyer, and Ramirez), and are also walking a high number of batter (led by Meyer, Middleton, and Nolasco). The Angels were second in homeruns allowed last week, and first in walks allowed. Fortunately, there was more good than bad overall.

Not on this list:

Tyler Skaggs, 10 day DL
Cam Bedrosian, 10 day DL
Mike Morin, 10 day DL
Andrew Bailey, 10 day DL
Huston Street, 60 day DL
Andrew Heaney, 60 day DL
Garrett Richards, 60 day DL
Nate Smith, DL


None. What??
