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. Drew Rucinski 10 words or less: Angels unearth independent ball pitcher. Exceeds expectations. Actually good. Position: SP  […]


Fallout from the Kendrick and Rutledge trades

Late last night, the Angels finally made the big move everyone had been waiting for. Actually, it was two moves, but they were very closely related. First they traded Howie Kendrick to the Dodgers for top pitching prospect Andrew Heaney, then they dealt relief prospect Jairo Diaz for infielder Jairo Diaz. It was a combination of […]


LA Angels Prospects Countdown #28: Daniel Hurtado

Far from the sexiest of pitching prospects, Daniel Hurtado carries a certain amount of intrigue as the starting pitcher who continues to have success despite seemingly being hittable and not having flashy stuff. Sound familiar? Daniel Hurtado 10 words or less: Boring but effective. Can he keep going? Next Shoemaker maybe? Position: SP    Born: 7/25/1992 […]

What to expect from the Angels at the Winter Meetings

The Winter Meetings draw nigh (you’re welcome for my avoidance of the “Winter Meetings are coming” trope) and the Angels have begun their preparations for them. Or at least we think they have. The Halos have been extremely quiet over the last few weeks, so we can only assume they are busy drawing up their […]
