Jefry Marte – IF/OF
Jefry Marte had a huge upside going into this season after an outstanding 2016 season which saw him hit .249 with 15 homers and 44 RBI’s for the Angels in 2016. However, in 2017 Marte did not start out well and when his batting average dipped below .200 he was sent down to the minors to find his swing.
Unfortunately that has not happened as his struggles have continued hitting just .132 in 38 at-bats so far for Salt Lake with two homers and four RBI’s. Who knows if Marte will right his ship this season. If he does then you could see him back in the majors in the next couple of months. If not he may remain with Salt Lake until the end of the season and his Angels future could be in jeopardy.
