Colorado Rockies: Trade targets if they were to be buyers
Two Angels (Pick One…again)
The Angels have been flirting with contention on and off for the past two months. However, as of now, it doesn’t appear likely they will contend this season. With the pitching rotation most likely getting ready for an upgrade, there are a few guys in the rotation who are great trade targets.
Andrew Heaney or Tyler Skaggs
Andrew Heaney is having a great season compared to his past two with the Angels. He has a 3.78 ERA while pitching in 102.1 innings. Along with that, he’s whiffed 102 batters while only walking 30. On the Angels depth chart, Heaney is listed as their first pitcher in the rotation. Heaney is still only at a six-figure salary and the Rockies would have control over him until 2021.
Left-handed pitcher Tyler Skaggs is the number two guy on the Angels rotation. If the Rox were to trade for him, they would have control until 2020.
Next: Rumors say the Rockies are focused on ...
Skaggs is having his best year yet with a 2.68 ERA in just 104 innings pitched along with 106 strikeouts. At only 26, he’d fit in perfectly with the age group the Rockies currently have on the pitching staff. Skaggs shows true potential and would be a solid left-hander to have on the team. The Angels would most likely want some youngsters in exchange for him as well.
