Angels Week 23 Rankings - Pitchers

The good, the bad, and the meh - Lights out!

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Chicago White Sox Matt Marton-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.


Angels pitchers allowed a low 13 runs over 6 games and placed 3rd in overall pitcher WAR behind the Indians and Yankees. The pitching staff also had the 2nd lowest ERA (2.21) and 2nd lowest FIP (2.85) in all of baseball. It was a great week for the staff who throws balls for a living. Relievers were even better with a 2.00 ERA and 8 of the 11 dudes who came from the pen didn’t allow a run last week.

Felix Pena and Jaime Barria had great weeks but I had to bump them down for Andrew Heaney who was literally historic. Not only did he have a negative FIP for the game, he is only the second Angels lefty ever to strike out 12 and walk zero in a game.

Most of the pitches on the bottom of this list moved up mainly because I pulled out some blank place holders.
