The Angels aren’t exactly in a place where the best pitching is necessary. However, having pitchers who aren’t injured would be a better alternative.
Reliever Cam Bedrosian will be facing season-ending surgery because of a blood clot in his right arm. Bedrosian is just one in a long line of starters and relievers who are out of commission for the Angels, and that list includes C.J. Wilson, who did not pitch in 2016 after having shoulder surgery, and Huston Street, who is out for the rest of the season after having knee surgery.
