25-year old righty reliever Jose Arredondo will miss all of the 2010 season and likely part of the 2011 season as he is due to have Tommy John Surgery soon. Arredondo pitched in 43 games (0 starts) for the Angels last season and he was 2-3 with a 6.00 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP. He has now pitched in 95 games (0 starts) in his two years with the Angels and he is 12-5 with a 3.48 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP. This is a big blow to the Angels’ bullpen as they were depending on him to pitch late in games.
UPDATE: The Angels did not tender a contract for the 2010 season to Arredondo pretty much ending his time with the Angels.
