Over the past few years, the LA Angels have seen their farm system go from one of the worst in history to a very respectable system with a handful of top-tier talents.

Now the only question for the LA Angels is when they will be able to use these young players at the highest level. There could be as many as 7-10 that contribute for the Angels this season, but this article will be focusing on the three who could be the biggest factors as the Halos look to get to the postseason for the first time in five years.

First, a few honorable mentions. Michael Hermosillo saw limited actions last year, but is still the Halos #11 prospect (per MLB.com). He could see time as the fourth outfielder if he impresses in Spring Training.

Former first round pick Matt Thaiss (#5) is a player who could make his debut should Albert Pujols see time on the disabled list, as the first baseman has proven he can slug at any level. He only plays first base, however, so his role and opportunity is restricted.

The final honorable mention goes to Jahmai Jones (#4), who spent last season learning second base, as the former outfielder is undergoing a position change. Jones projects as a plus-defender with the type of power that will make him a threat for extra-base hits throughout his career. Jones could see time if there is an injury, or if the club wants someone with defensive versatility.
