Angels Power Rankings – Pitchers – September 8th

My rankings include the entire 40 man roster – not just the active 25 man.

These rankings were compiled with the help of MLB stats, FanGraphs, misc. data, personal opinion, and some fairy dust I found hidden in Shoemaker’s beard.

An asterisk* means the player was not on the active roster at the time of this posting.

Updates to List:

Drew Rucinski and Jose Alveraz are no longer on the 40 man roster
Joe Thatcher is on a rebab assignment
Jairo Diaz was purchased from the minors
