Can Angels Pitching Keep Them Contenders?

PitchingThe Los Angeles Angels have a good amount of offensive potential to make them a playoff contender with Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton. The big questions surrounds the club’s starting pitching.

Last season’s starters were 22nd in the majors with a 4.30 ERA, but general manager Jerry Dipoto acquired young left-handed starters Hector Santiago and Tyler Skaggs for a fresh start.

Jered Weaver and C.J. Wilson are back as the one-two punch at the top of the Angels’ rotation, but they’re coming off remarkably different experiences.

Weaver struggled with injuries and velocity declines while winning just 11 games last year, while Wilson had an outstanding 17-victory campaign with 188 strikeouts.
