Los Angeles Angels: Five things to watch for during Spring Training
2. Will there be a platooning system in left field for the Angels, again?
Last season, the Los Angeles Angels attempt at a platooning system in left field was a massive failure. I mean massive, Daniel Nava and Craig Gentry couldn’t stay healthy long enough to convince anyone that this was a good idea. Nevertheless, the Angels could be trying that move one more time. Although this season, the Angels will have a different system that they’ll platoon.

The Angels will have Cameron Maybin and Ben Revere playing the left field position. As of now, it’s unclear whether these two will platoon during the season. Revere may, in fact, play backup to Maybin at the left field position.
Maybin and Revere are huge upgrades from Nava and Gentry. They’re more athletic, and they have a significantly better batting average than last season. I’m still not 100% sold on the idea of a platooning system. If you’re playing fantasy baseball, Maybin isn’t a bad idea if he’s the starter. However, if he’s platooning with Revere, then you’ll have to go another route.
