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.

LA Angels Prospects Countdown #1: Andrew Heaney

He cost the Angels Howie Kendrick, but as one of the top left-handed pitching prospects in all of baseball, Andrew Heaney should be worth the price. He’s the top prospect in the Halos farm system and potentially a big part of the 2015 rotation. Andrew Heaney 10 words or less: One of the best pitching prospects […]

MLB: Seattle Mariners at Los Angeles Angels

LA Angels Prospects Countdown #2: Sean Newcomb

The Angels finally got a chance to draft in the first half of the first round and their reward was Sean Newcomb. With advanced skills and a high ceiling, that is a reward that the Angels can build around for years to come. Sean Newcomb 10 words or less: Angels shiny new prospect has the stuff to dominate. […]
