Haren is a beast. Also, Weaver managed to strikeout 15 batters two days before.
I think the Angels rotation will be pretty solid as long as Kazmir doesn't pitch. It looks like Weaver, Haren, Santana, Pineiro, Palmer/Bell/Chatwood.
I really hope the Chatwood kid gets a couple more starts. He had a great season in the minors and although he only pitched one game in AAA, he's got the stuff to succeed. Mid 90s fastball, high groundball rate, decent strikeout rate. The only thing he needs to work on is control (lowering walks).
Chatwood tosses a gem vs a strong White Sox lineup. His line was: 7.0 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 1 HR. 5 groundball outs to 6 flyball outs (including 3 double plays!)
The Angels are really giving all the youngsters a chance. Trumbo, Conger, Walden, and Chatwood are all rookies. If they manage to get consistent playing time and playing at this level, we're looking at a whole bunch of Rookie of the Year candidates.
Not to mention Bourjos, Aybar, Kendrick, Morales, Weaver, and Santana are all young uns as well, along with the bullpen arms Thompson, Kohn, Jepsen.
