The LA Angels are getting help from unlikely sources.
The LA Angels are 26-27 which is hardly a stellar record, but the fact that they have endured so many injuries that it is amazing that they are still winning enough games to stay afloat in the AL West and the wild-card race.
Give credit to LA Angels general manager Billy Eppler for this, for putting together a very deep roster with plenty of players who are ready to step in for extended time. Some of the players that have caught my eye and are the keys to the Angels being at .500 rather than 10 to 15 games under .500 are a collection of veterans that other teams have thrown away and young players who for the most part have not proven themselves in the big leagues yet.

Will the Angels be able to sustain this pace or improve themselves is anyone’s guess, but that’s the fun part about baseball. If you watch the game long enough you will see many things that will surprise and amaze you as well as many things that disappoint and frustrate you.
So without any further delay here is our best of the best unsung heroes for the Angels so far this season. Hope you enjoy it and feel free to comment.
