Can Taylor Featherston make the Angels?

One of the few roster spots up for grabs when the Angels head into training camp next week is the utility infielder role. By all appearances the Angels want that role to go to Rule 5 pick Taylor Featherston. But does that mean it actually will go to Taylor Featherston? Promising a year-long roster spot to an […]


Angels prospects 2015 graduating class

One of the main components in deciding how successful a minor league organization’s prospects are, is how many prospects graduate to the majors on a yearly basis. In 2013, when the Angels prospect list had reached rock bottom, the Angels had managed to graduate one player from the minors to the major league team, Kole […]

Considering a Chris Iannetta extension

The Angels are in extension talking mode and one of their current targets is reportedly catcher Chris Iannetta. He’s been exactly what the Halos needed over his three-year tenure behind the plate. Heck, he’s been one of the few catchers (non-Molina family edition) that hasn’t spent significant time in Scioscia’s doghouse. But he’s also about […]


Five Breakout Angels Prospects for 2015

Much like the stock market, prospects are something teams invest in. Sometimes, you spend a lot of money (Roberto Baldoquin/Sean Newcomb) in hopes the payoff will be even greater. Other times, seeming penny-stocks can turn into somewhat of a jackpot (Matt Shoemaker/Kole Calhoun). These are the five players who I feel are going to “breakout” […]

Best tools in the Angels farm system

Would the Angels be better off without Josh Hamilton?

As you surely heard yesterday, Josh Hamilton is likely to miss the start of the season due to shoulder surgery. We’re probably only talking about him missing 10 to 20 games, but the way the Twittersphere is reacting, you’d think the Angels announced that Hamilton is having career-ending arm amputation. As far as they are concerned, this […]

Considering a Huston Street extension

With their free agent shopping done, all their trades settled and just one arbitration case left to deal with, the Angels front office has turned their attention to talking contract extensions with some of their players. This isn’t nearly the sexy topic it was last season when they were talking extension with Mike Trout, but we’ll try […]
