Los Angeles Angels: C+

(45-47, 16.5 behind in AL West, 3 behind in Wild Card): Considering that Mike Trout has missed six weeks, and that Albert Pujols and virtually every other position player besides Andrelton Simmons and Yunel Escobar has been dreadful, it's a miracle the Angels can see a wild card spot without a telescope. That goes doubly given they have a pitching staff beset by injuries, with just one starter carrying a ERA+ above 100 (Alex Meyer, who they optioned before the All-Star break), and Bud Norris somehow emerging as an adequate closer. Even with Trout about to return, however, this does not look like a squad that can stay competitive.
