He tossed six scoreless innings across those outings and was relatively effective in the minors, posting a 3.80 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in 42.2 innings across 46 relief appearances with Triple-A clubs. Kolarek will join the Angels on a major-league deal ahead of the 2023 campaign but could lose his spot in the big-league bullpen if he struggles at some point.... See More ... See Less
