Spring Training is finally rolling around, and with that also comes the batch of fresh faces that will be joining the LA Angels this Spring. Here at Halo Hangout we’ve already detailed what you need to know regarding the Angels non-roster invitees,

With 21 a total non-roster invitees the LA Angels have a lot of details to make order of, and today we will be looking at the non-roster outfielders with Spring Training invites.

The non-roster outfielders heading to Spring Training contains the most exciting prospects in the Angels system to date, some of these names being Jo Adell and Brandon Marsh. They aren’t the only names on the list, other invitees such as the underrated prospect Brennon Lund as well as fan favorite Peter Bourjos are there to amp up the competition and excitement. Marsh, Adell and Lund (to a lesser extent) look to be the Angels of the future, but exactly how far away is that future? Is there a chance we could be seeing any of these names with the Angels big league squad 2019?

Included in that batch of invitees are the depth options in Jarrett Parker and Cesar Puello. Puello took four big league at-bats with the Angels in 2017 before finding himself back in the Minors with a handful of different organizations. Parker, on the other hand, saw 177 Plate Appearances with the Giants in 2017 before also making his way back to the Minors. Each player does make an interesting case as a depth option, but exactly what skillset can they show off to prove their value to the club in 2019?
