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.

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.

C.J. Wilson has looked good so far this year for the Los Angeles Angels

32-year old lefty starting pitcher C.J. Wilson isn’t letting the Angels poor start effect his performance.  Wilson has pitched in 17 games (all starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 8-5 with a 3.63 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP.  Wilson has given up 99 hits and 45 walks while whiffing 99 batters in his first 106 2/3 innings so far this year, which is impressive for the most part….except all the walks.  Wilson has now pitched in 51 games (all starts) in his first two years with the Angels and he is 21-15 with a 3.76 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP.  Wilson signed a 5-year, $77.5 million dollar deal two winters ago and the Angels are getting some bang for their bucks.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Wednesday 5 June 2013 at 4:09 pm

31-year old righty Jerome Williams is heading back to the bullpen for the Angels, due to the returns of Jered Weaver and Tommy Hanson.  Williams started 6 games for the Angels while Weaver was out of action and he was 3-2 with a 3.08 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 14 games (6 starts) overall this year for the Angels and he is 4-2 with a 2.58 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP.  Williams will be an asset in the pen as he is proving to be a solid pitcher no matter what role the Angels need him in so far this year.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Monday 3 June 2013 at 6:21 am

26-year old righty reliever Michael Kohn and 28-year old righty reliever Robert Coello are both in a good zone for the Angels right now.  Kohn has pitched in 17 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 1-0 with a 2.40 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP.  He has given up 7 hits and he has walked 8 batters while whiffing 18 of them in his first 15 innings this year, which is impressive.  Coello has been even better for the Angels so far this year.  Coello has pitched in 10 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 1-1 with 1 save, a 0.73 ERA and a 0.73 WHIP.  He has given up 7 hits and 2 walks while whiffing 18 batters in his first 12 1/3 innings this year.  The Angels need Kohn and Coello to keep up the good work as they need all the help that they can get in the pen.

31-year old righty Jerome Williams moved into the starting rotation in May and he has really helped them.  He has started 4 games so far this month for the Angels and he is 2-1 with a 3.24 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP.  Williams has now pitched in 12 games (4 starts) overall this year for the Angels and he is 3-1 with a 2.53 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP.  Williams has only given up 38 hits and 12 walks while whiffing 29 batters in his first 46 1/3 innings this year, which is pretty impressive.  The Angels need Williams to keep up the good work.
