4. Albert Pujols.
While there is still some questions surround Albert Pujols’ health for Opening Day, he still is a must watch for the Angels. Pujols is on the verge acquiring one of Major League Baseball’s most coveted milestones, 3,000 hits.
Pujols currently has 2,825 career hits, a mere 175 away from the 3,000 club. He’ll be the second Angel player to join the club with Rod Carew. Last season, Pujols had 159 hits, so it maybe 2018 before we see Pujols hit this milestone.
Seeing Pujols chase 3,000 is another reason to love the Angels. Hopefully, Pujols will be healthy to start the season. If not, expect for Luis Valbuena or C.J. Cron to get some DH time.
