2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2014

Boshers was called up in August, after Howie Kendrick hit the disabled list with a hyperextended knee, and stayed with the big club for the rest of the season in what was likely an effort to stabilize the Angels' bullpen. Unfortunately, the young left-hander was unable to replicate the gaudy strikeout rates he posted in the minors in 2012 and 2013, and his pedestrian 7.6 K/9, combined with 4.7 BB/9, resulted in a 4.70 ERA in 15.1 innings of big league relief. As a left-handed reliever with strikeout potential in a struggling bullpen, it is possible that Boshers starts 2014 in the majors, but if he can't find the stuff that led him to post an 11.9 K/9 in 19.2 innings at Triple-A Salt Lake last season, he'll likely be resigned to the role of a specialist.
