Los Angeles Angels 2015 left fielders grades
Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports
Matt Joyce proved to be yet another disappointment as he struggled to find the bat early on and throughout the season. Joyce would finish the year with a paltry .174 batting average with five home runs and 21 RBIs. Joyce was projected in the beginning of the season to be the everyday starter in left field and ended up being a non-factor towards the final weeks of the season.
This season by far was one of the worst in Joyce’s MLB career and with him becoming a free agent this offseason, Joyce’s future with the Angels remains in the air. Joyce plans to play winter ball this offseason in the hopes that he will find his stride once again. His season didn’t even have a high point and ended up ranked as the fifth-least valuable player in 2015.
Joyce will most likely leave or be let go by the Angels, in the scenario that no other team will want to sign him after his horrendous season in 2015. Joyce might see the invitation to spring training for one more chance to prove he can be an everyday player.
