Potential AL MVP Shohei Ohtani did it all for the Los Angeles Angels in 2021. After his dual-threat success, though, it's clear LAA needs to improve its roster to seriously contend.

That's why it's exciting to hear the Angels linked to a free agent who'd give this team a huge boost in a key area.

Marcus Stroman Angels

Los Angeles views Stroman as a "potential fit," per MLB insider Ken Rosenthal. He's the exact kind of player this team needs to add in order to have a playoff-worthy rotation.

Stroman made an MLB-leading 33 starts last season, recording an 3.02 ERA and 1.145 WHIP. He also racked up 158 strikeouts across 179.0 innings pitched.

The Angels struggled mightily on the mound in 2021. They posted a team ERA of 4.69, the ninth-worst mark in the league. Ohtani (3.18 ERA) can't carry the team on the mound every game, so getting another top arm could help take some of the pressure off of him.
