GameDay Thread: Angels @ Twins (9/25/22 11am Pacific): Suarez on the mound, Thaiss at 1B
Coming into the season all the talk was on Marsh and Adell. But it was Rengifo who developed into a huge asset. Capable of fielding 3 infield positions at a major league level, it was his production at the plate becoming the most pleasent surprise. Looking forward to watching this man over the next years.

Even though the offense was fairly putrid this year, I feel like I can see a path to improvement for 2023. It's gonna take some work for sure, but for whatever reason, I feel like it will get addressed appropriately.
The bullpen on the other hand...
Not only has it been a hot mess for two years in a row, I am having a hard time visualizing how much it improves from this year to next. I know we've got a few guys in the minors that will be here soon, but are they really ready to contribute at a high level from the start of next season?
Tepera isn't very good. Nor is Loup. Hoping that both just suffered from typical reliever volatility and will be better next year. Because we know they're going to be given a shot to redeem and they are unlikely to be traded considering their performances and salaries.
Quijada is solid. But this was a break out year and he's not exactly a guy I'm super comfortable with handing closer duties to for next year.
Herget will likely be here again but it would surprise me if he produces at the level he did this year.
Wantz? maybe as a mop up guy at best
Warren? I thought he would progress to a solid 6th/7th type but his short stint this year was ugly and his peripherals in AAA aren't good.
Ortega? Another guy I'm not sure I trust.
Barria is fine as a swing guy or multi inning guy if someone leaves early for whatever reason but again. not a guy I would consider for the late innings.
That's maybe 4 or 5 kind of ok arms with a lot of questions otherwise and even the ok guys could turn into questions pretty quick.
I seriously doubt that we spend on relievers again. That was a disaster.
So do we cross our fingers on guys currently in AA or pickups from the scrap heap or guys recovering from injury?
I think this is going to be Minasian's toughest task this winter. Piecing together a capable bullpen because that's about the best I see it being next year is capable.
