The 2016 season hasn’t been very kind to the Los Angeles Angels and a closer look at the statistics would show that this team is historical bad. And they have a chance to set some new team records.

A look at the current team, and their numbers show that this team is close to setting some new records, including most GIDP’s in a season and most number of pitchers used in a season.

More from around the American League West:

  • Prince Fielder has retired, and will no longer play major league baseball, but his remaining $96 million wont just disappear.
  • The Mariners have been on a win streak, and that all could be because of a talk from manager Scott Servais at the beginning of the homestand.
  • Yulieski Gurriel is becoming accustomed to baseball in the United States as he prepares to help the Astros in the future.
  • One of the names that the A’s got back in return for Josh Reddick and Rich Hill was right-hander Jhael Cotton. In his second start for the A’s organization, Cotton almost threw a Triple-A perfect game.
