With the LA Angels top pitching prospect Griffin Canning debuting last night and Luis Rengifo being called up last week, the youth movement has officially begun in Anaheim.
That being said, what other prospects could debut for the LA Angels in the months to come? Obviously Griffin Canning is one of the best for the Halos, but more help could be on the way very, very soon.
Before we get into that, Griffin Canning was absolutely electric in his debut. Just looking at his stat line doesn’t give Canning due credit, as one of the runs he allowed was after he exited the game.
On top of that, he was unable to work later into the game due to workload. The Angels have been very careful with Canning so far this season, and rightfully so. With such a long history of injuries to their rotation, the Halos are protecting their crown jewel.

Along with Canning, infielder Luis Rengifo has seen his first stint in the MLB over the past week. Filling in for the injured Zack Cozart, Rengifo has shown the ability to play solid defense while also flashing at the plate.
Before we get into players who can help out in Anaheim soon, we should first bring up top prospect Jo Adell. Unfortunately, his debut is unlikely to be anytime soon. He suffered two pretty significant injuries during Spring Training, and has yet to return to action. When he does, it will be with the Double-A Mobile Baybears. While some were hoping for a debut sometime in 2019, 2020 seems much more realistic now.
