Potential Breakout Stars for the LA Angels In 2017
The LA Angels were far from making the playoffs last year. But, the core team they were able to put together last year was nothing to scoff at.
The LA Angels 2016 season ended up riddled with injuries. A lot of their core team couldn’t contribute when needed the most. At the beginning of the 2016 season, I don’t think anyone could have guessed the Angels were going to finish with a 74-88 record.
There were plenty of players who had an amazing season last year. I believe, in the end, we got to see some short glimpses of the LA Angels best and worst last season. In 2017, I’d expect a lot of the every day Angels’ players to be more consistent. If consistency can be found then the Angels have a good chance to be a top team in the league.
With Billy Eppler and the Angels’ front office adding some much-needed depth this past offseason, the core team will be stronger than ever. I’m fully expecting a high chance that some Angels may have their best season yet in 2017.
Looking through the current 25-man roster for the Angels, it gives me more optimism than 2016. There is obviously more depth that has been added to the roster this past off-season. However, what is most exciting are the returning young players that could have a breakout season. I feel there is a huge upside to a lot of the players on the Angels 25-man roster.

I’m going to outline some of the players that could break out and become one of the top tier players for the Angels in the 2017 season. I’m omitting players that have the last name Trout and Pujols as I feel like we know what to expect from them. This is purely going to be a best case scenario post on a few players I think may go above and beyond next season.
