24-year old righty reliever Cam Bedrosian is starting to put it all together in 2016 for the Los Angeles Angels.  Bedrosian has pitched in 25 games (0 starts) so far this year for the Angels and he is 1-0 with a 1.64 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP.  He has given up 21 hits and 7 walks while whiffing 24 batters in his first 22 innings this year.  Bedrosian has now pitched in 76 games (0 starts) in his first three years with the Angels and he is 2-1 with a 4.58 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP.  If Bedrosian winds up being as good as his dad was or better, the Angels will have something here.  Steve Bedrosian pitched in 732 games (46 starts) in his 14 years in the show and he was 76-79 with 184 saves, a 3.38 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP.  The senior Bedrosian won the National League Cy Young Award in 1987 for the Philadelphia Phillies.  He pitched in 65 games (0 starts) for the Phillies in 1987 and he was 5-3 with a Major League leading 40 saves, a 2.83 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP.

Matt Shoemaker has been pitching well lately for the Los Angeles Angels

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Wednesday 8 June 2016 at 7:38 am

29-year old righty starting pitcher Matt Shoemaker was so awful in April that the Los Angeles Angels sent him to AAA for a wake up call.  He wasn’t down there long and he has looked like a different pitcher since his return to the show.  Since May 1st, Shoemaker has started 6 games for the Angels in which he is 2-3 with a 3.43 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP.  He has given up 41 hits and only 3 walks while whiffing 43 batters in his 39 1/3 innings since May 1st!  Shoemaker has now pitched in 11 games (all starts) overall this year for the Angels and he is 3-7 with a 5.40 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP.  The Angels need Shoemaker to keep pitching well.

Fernando Salas has been pitching great for the Los Angeles Angels in 2016

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Wednesday 11 May 2016 at 11:27 am

30-year old righty reliever Fernando Salas has been pitching well so far this year for the Los Angeles Angels.  He has pitched in 14 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 2-1 with a 2.25 ERA and a 0.82 WHIP.  He has only given up 10 hits and 3 walks while whiffing 13 batters in his first 16 innings, which are pretty impressive numbers.  Salas has now pitched in 143 games (0 starts) in his first three years with the Angels and he is 12-3 with a 3.64 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP.  Salas would likely be next in line for saves if Joe Smith were to get hurt while Huston Street is still on the D.L.

Jered Weaver is getting by with smoke and mirrors for the Los Angeles Angels

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Saturday 30 April 2016 at 1:04 pm

33-year old righty starting pitcher Jered Weaver is getting by with smoke and mirrors for the Los Angeles Angels.  He has pitched in 4 games (all starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 3-0 with a 3.86 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP.  He has given up 26 hits (4 homers), 7 walks and he has whiffed 11 batters in his first 23 1/3 innings so far this year.  Weaver had a hard time last year for the Angels, working in 26 games (all starts) in which he was 7-12 with a 4.61 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP.  Weaver has now pitched in 295 games (all starts) in his first 11 years with the Angels and he is 141-81 with a 3.41 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP.  He has been to three American League All-Star teams in his career with the Angels so far.  Weaver is second in Angels’ history in both games started (295) and wins (141).  He is also #9 in games pitched (295), #4 in WHIP (1.16), #4 in innings pitches (1,870 1/3 innings) and he is #3 in whiffs (1,506) in Angels’ history.  It will be interesting to see if Weaver can get by with throwing 83 mph “fastballs”.

Mike Morin is looking good for the Los Angeles Angels this spring

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Thursday 31 March 2016 at 11:57 am

24-year old righty reliever Mike Morin is looking good this spring for the Los Angeles Angels.  Morin pitched in 8 games (0 starts) so far in spring training for the Angels and he is 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.38 WHIP.  Morin pitched in 47 games (0 starts) for the Angels last year and he was 4-2 with 1 save, a 6.37 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 107 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Angels and he is 8-6 with 1 save, a 4.20 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP.  The Angels are hoping that Morin’s nice spring means he will pitch more like the pitcher he was in 2014, instead of the guy that pitched last year.

A.J. Achter is opening up some eyes this spring for the Los Angeles Angels

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Friday 25 March 2016 at 10:06 am

27-year old righty reliever A.J. Achter was a long shot to win a spot in the Angels’ bullpen this spring, but he has been very, very impressive so far.  He has pitched in 8 games (0 starts) for the Los Angeles Angels so far in spring training and he is 0-1 with 1 save, a 1.00 ERA and a 0.56 WHIP.  He has only given up 4 hits and 1 walk in 9 innings so far this spring, while whiffing 8 batters.  Achter has pitched in 18 games (0 starts) in his first two years in the show and he is 1-1 with a 5.18 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP.

Dane De La Rosa has been outstanding for the Los Angeles Angels in 2013

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Thursday 26 September 2013 at 11:49 am

30-year old righty reliever Dane De La Rosa has been a bright spot for the Angels during a very dim 2013 season.  No one really blinked an eye when the Angels dealt reliever Steve Geltz to the Tampa Bay Rays for De La Rosa last March 27th, but it has been a huge move for the Angels.  De La Rosa has pitched in 73 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 6-1 with 2 saves, a 2.92 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP.  De La Rosa has given up only 56 hits and 28 walks while whiffing 63 batters in his first 71 innings for the Angels, which are very impressive numbers.  De La Rosa has now pitched in 85 games (0 starts) in his first three years in the majors and he is 6-1 with 2 saves, a 4.10 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP.

Ernesto Frieri is back on track for the Los Angeles Angels

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Tuesday 17 September 2013 at 4:25 pm

28-year old righty closer Ernesto Frieri is back in a solid groove for the Angels.  He was taken out of his closer’s role for a little bit and he has returned a better pitcher.  Since August 1st, Frieri has pitched in 17 games (0 starts) for the Angels in which he is 2-1 with 9 saves, a 2.41 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP.  He has given up 15 hits and 3 walks while whiffing 26 batters in his 18 2/3 innings since August 1st.  Frieri has now pitched in 62 games (0 starts) overall this year for the Angels and he is 2-4 with 34 saves, a 3.68 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP.  Frieri has really tightened up his control lately and the Angels hope that continues into the future.

C.J. Wilson keeps rolling for the Los Angeles Angels

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Sunday 1 September 2013 at 7:41 am

32-year old lefty starting pitcher C.J. Wilson is the other guy (Albert Pujols) that signed a big, long term deal with the Angels two winters ago.  Wilson, unlike Pujols, has been worth the cash so far for the Angels.  He has pitched in 27 games (all starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 13-6 with a 3.36 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP.  He has given up 170 hits and 68 walks while whiffing 156 batters in his first 171 1/3 innings so far this year, which are solid numbers.  Wilson has now pitched in 61 games (all starts) in his first two years with the Angels and he is 26-16 with a 3.61 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP.  The most impressive thing to me about Wilson’s performance this year is that he is rising above his team and giving them a good chance to win every time he’s on the bump.

Jered Weaver has been awesome in July for the Los Angeles Angels

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Tuesday 30 July 2013 at 7:10 am

30-year old righty starting pitcher Jered Weaver has been excellent in July for the Angels.  He has pitched in 6 games (all starts) in July for the Angels and he is 4-1 with a 1.32 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP.  Weaver has now pitched in 14 games (all starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 5-5 with a 2.84 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP.  Weaver has given up 77 hits and 22 walks while whiffing 73 batters in his first 88 2/3 innings so far this year, and those are really good numbers.  If Weaver would have not gotten hurt this year, the Angels might not be sellers at the trade deadline.
