The Los Angeles Angels are not happy with Brian Fuentes

The Angels have been spoiled watching Francisco Rodriguez finish games the last few years. His replacement this season was lefty Brian Fuentes. Fuentes has pitched in 61 games this season and he is 1-5 with 44 saves, a 4.21 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP. All has not been good for Fuentes as he has blown 7 saves this season. The Angels are considering using Kevin Jepsen in some save situations down the stretch but I don’t agree with that move. Jepsen has pitched in 49 games in relief this season for the Angels and he is 6-3 with a 4.26 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP. I think you need a veteran to handle the pressure of closing games in the post-season so I think the Angels will be playing with fire if they change the closer right now.
