Note: These final rankings are based on the entire season and only players on the 40 man roster when the season ended are included.
These rankings were compiled with the help of MLB stats, FanGraphs, misc. data, personal opinion, scribblings on Cam Bedrosian’s Five Guys wrappers, and some fairy dust I found hidden in Matt Shoemaker’s beard.
We know it was a rough year for injuries, and the Angels ended the season with 10 pitchers on the DL. Ouch. Angels starters had the second fewest inning pitched of all teams and were beat only by the Rays who spent most of the year not even using a starter. They were 12th in ERA, 19th in WAR, 1st in wild pitches, and had the 6th highest HR/9 rate. It was just not pretty at all. No regular starter even managed an ERA under 4.00.
Relievers had the 13th best ERA, were 19th in WAR and had the 6th most blown saves in baseball. They were right smack in the middle (16th) with a .244 BAA. They had only 35 saves on the season - good for 26th place and ahead of some pretty crappy teams - White Sox, Royals, Marlins, Orioles.
Not on this list:
