Michael Wacha

Michael Wacha will finally get the spot in the everyday rotation that he deserved last year and he will show why he is a dominant ace for the future of this organization. I expect Michael Wacha to get to 20 wins and have an ERA at or below 2.90. I do believe that after hearing about Mike Trout’s new deal with the Los Angeles Angels after two great years will motivate Michael Wacha to have a great 2nd year as well.
