33-year old righty starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco is looking like a new (and much better) pitcher since the Los Angeles Angels acquired him at the trade deadline from the Twins.  Nolasco has pitched in 10 games (all starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 3-6 with a 3.60 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP.  He has given up 58 hits and 13 walks while whiffing 47 batters in his first 65 innings for the Angels.  Nolasco has now pitched in 31 games (all starts) for the Twins and Angels overall this year and he is 7-14 with a 4.60 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP.  Nolasco has one year left on his 4-year, $49 million dollar deal that he signed with the Twins, so he will be part of the Angels’ rotation in 2017.

27-year old righty reliever Deolis Guerra has been pretty solid for the Los Angeles Angels in 2016.  He has pitched in 37 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 3-0 with a 2.96 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP.  He has given up only 42 hits and 5 walks while whiffing 34 batters in his first 48 2/3 innings for the Angels so far this year.  Guerra has now pitched in 47 games (0 starts) in his first two years in the show and he is 5-0 with a 3.86 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP.  It looks like the Angels have found a keeper in Deolis Guerra.

29-year old righty starting pitcher Matt Shoemaker of the Los Angeles Angels is done for the season!  He was hit by a line drive off of the bat of Mariners’ 3B Kyle Seager and is caused a small skull fracture and a hematoma on the right side of his head.  He had emergency surgery last night.  Shoemaker pitched in 27 games (all starts) for the Angels this year and he was 9-13 with a 3.88 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP.  He gave up 166 hits and 30 walks while whiffing 143 batters in 160 innings pitched this year.  Shoemaker had a rough start to the season, as he started 5 games in April in which he was 1-4 with a 9.15 ERA and a 1.89 WHIP.  But, when he started using his split finger fastball a lot, his fortunes started to chance.  From May 1st on, Shoemaker pitched in 22 games (all starts) in which he was 8-9 with a 3.10 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP.  Shoemaker has now pitched in 80 games (72 starts) in his first four years with the Angels and he is 32-27 with a 3.75 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP.  Here’s hoping that Shoemaker has a complete recovery and can resume pitching for the Angels in 2017.

27-year old righty reliever Deolis Guerra has been impressive so far this year for the Los Angeles Angels.  Guerra has played in 18 games (0 starts) for the Angels so far this year and he is 2-0 with a 2.63 ERA and a 0.81 WHIP.  He has given up 21 hits and 1 walk while whiffing 19 batters in his first 27 1/3 innings for the Angels, which are very, very impressive numbers.  Guerra has now pitched in 28 games (0 starts) in his first two years in the show and he is 4-0 with a 4.09 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP.  The Angels might have found something here in Guerra, as he has been really impressive so far this year.

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”.
