The Angels are currently only three and a half games behind the Oakland Athletics in the American League West. They are looking to take the division title away from the Athletics who are looking to win the AL West for the third straight year.
It is going to be close but either way, the Angels are almost, barring a major collapse, guaranteed a playoff spot. Which means they need to strengthen their areas of weakness in order to compete in the postseason. Manager Mike Scioscia and company have a few changes they need to make even after recently trading failed closer Ernesto Frieri for another failed closer the Pirates’ Jason Grilli.
Luckily for the Angels there are quite a few options out there on the market that would be a good fit for them.
