Week 6 Angels Power Rankings – Pitchers

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

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.

*** Salt Lake Bees Roster
** Arkansas Travelers Roster


Cory Rasmus Removed – DL
Ryan Mattheus added to 40 man and called up from minors
Chad Smith received from the Oakland A’s (for Drew Butera)

Rank Player Last Week Change High Low Comments
1 richardsGarrett Richards 2 uparrow+1 1 8 Two ace worthy performance last week including 6 no hit innings on Sunday. 15 total strikeouts in 13.2 innings iwth a .128BAA and a .67 WHIP.  ACE!
2 weaverJered Weaver 12 uparrow+10 1 14 Weaver proved us all wrong last week by giving us the finger, upping his velocity and doing so through nine shutout innings. We will be in good shape if he has that kind of fire back.
3 josealverazJose Alvarez 4 downarrow-1 4 8 3 more scoreless innings.  Proving to be a great long relief guy.
4 wilsonCJ Wilson 3 downarrow-1 3 12 Didn’t walk a single batter last week but he did have a .259 BAA.  So so performance but not bad.
5 santiagoHector Santiago 10 uparrow+5 2 14 Well, good week – bad week, back to good week so I guess we can expect this coming week to be NOT good?
6 tropeanoNick Tropeano*** 5 downarrow-1 3 11 13.2 IP and 6 ER for the Bees last week.  Move down one spot.
7 ph_434718Huston Street 1 downarrow-6 1 10 Holy sucktastic batman.  TWO blown saves.  .375BAA. Ouch.
8 ramosCesar Ramos 6 downarrow-2 5 7 One whole scoreless inning.
9 morinMike Morin 8 uparrow-1  3 10 2 scoreless innings.  Twice as good as Ramos!
10 smithJoe Smith 7 downarrow-3 3 13 Smoked the same crack that hit Street and had a 1.5WHIP last week.
11 vinnieVinnie Pestano 11 4 11 Turned it around this week but only threw one  inning.
12 shoemakerMatt Shoemaker 9 downarrow-3 7 12 No one feared the beard last week. 6 homeruns in 10 innings?  He gave up 9 hits over 10.1 innings but did have 14 ks.  67% of the hits he gave up were homeruns.  I guess he either strikes someone out or gives up the long ball now.
13 bedrosianCam Bedrosian*** 13 13 17 His stare.. I’m…  What was I saying?
14 aheaneyAndrew Heaney*** 14 10 16 Still not panning out from that Hendrick trade.  The Dodgers are laughing at us.
15 rucinskiDrew Rucinski*** 15 2 15 Not great again last week.  Oh Drew.
16 salasFernando Salas 16 15 18 1.2 scoreless innings.  Maybe he can move back up soon.
17 mattheusRyan Mattheus 17 17 17  Pitched one scoreless inning in his Halo debut.
18 mybrydeJeremy McBryde*** 18 17 19 Meh.  I really don’t have much to say about him.
19 reynoldsDanny Reynolds** 19 18 19 .2 whole IP.  Yawn.
20 wilkAdam Wilk*** 20 20 20 Absolutely shelled last week and somehow was left in to give up 12 hits and 11 runs in 2.2 innings.  Were the manager and pitching coach both asleep??
21 chadsmithChad Smith*** 21 21 Welcome to the team!  You’re bound to be better than Butera – right?
