Angels Week 20 Rankings - Pitchers

The good, the bad, and the meh - Barria, Pena, and the rest

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Los Angeles Angels Richard Mackson-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.

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.


With a bullpen ERA of 4.90 and starter ERA of 4.88, pitching was not a strong point last week. Starters really struggled with a combined 51 hits and walks over just 33.2 innings in 7 starts. Newcomers Buttrey, Morales, and Jerez were the only relievers to put up zeros in runs last week with the rest of the bullpen struggling to some extent.
