Not too shocking considering everything that happened. I mean... the only 2 starters that come to mind from their roster last year... Ohtani (who spent most of the year as a DH because he needed TJ Surgery).. and Skaggs (and we all know the tragedy that happened there)…. so yeah It does not shock me at all.Yeah I thought the same thing. Keuchel is another option, but yeah that would make it to good starters, no doubt. Did you know they didn't have a starter pitch 100 innings last year? Crazy.
I couldn't even tell you who their other starters were last year.
And I'll be honest.... if I'm the Angels and/or Ohtani… if it were not for the fact Angels need SP so badly... I'd almost make him a permanent OF/DH. Dude has a good bat. Imagine an everyday lineup that has Him, Trout, Rendon & Pujols (even if he is getting old, still producing a decent stat line most years).
