LA Angels Prospects Countdown #18: Chad Hinshaw

Another in the collection of “grinder” outfielders in the system, Chad Hinshaw has been under the radar, but is now starting to get noticed. Is he ready to stay on the radar now?

LA Angels Prospects Countdown #19: Bo Way

Bo Way? Yes way! This year’s seventh round draft pick for the Angels looks like he could be something of a diamond in the rough. Even if he isn’t, at least he has a great name. Bo Way In 10 words or less: Mark my words, he will be a major leaguer. Position: OF  Born: 11/17/91 Bats: […]

Recapping the Angels at the Winter Meetings

This is probably the most Dipoto built roster you’ve ever seen. There’s depth, and by depth, I mean options. Lots and lots of options. Quite frankly, it’s confusing and hurts my head to even wrap around it, so I simply won’t. The best I can do is just lay them out for you. Starting Pitching: […]


LA Angels Prospects Countdown #27: Drew Rucinski

An undrafted indie ball reclamation project, Drew Rucinski hardly has the profile of prospect, but after a stellar minor league campaign and a cup of coffee in the Show, he is definitely a guy that should be on everyone’s radar.
