AL West SP Projections

Our tour through the Starting Pitcher projections now takes us through the American League West, home of King Felix. If you’re going to pitch in the American League, this is the division to do so. The Mariners, A’s and Angels all play home games in pitcher parks and the presence of Nolan Ryan in Texas makes all Pitchers ride the gravy train with biscuit wheels. You don’t squat on your spurs and you don’t step up to Nolan without your A game.You also don’t travel through the AL West without paying royalties to King Felix, be sure to honor thy king before making the jump.
