Most people who follow the LA Angels can tell you at least something about the Angels best prospects. Names like Canning, Suarez, Thaiss, Adell, & Marsh come up in most conversations.

What many LA Angels fans don’t know much about is the lower level prospects down in Single-A Inland Empire or Burlington. Most people would agree what the Angels need the most is pitching.  In Double and Triple-A there are a few pitching prospects, but compared to the low minors for the Angels.

Names that you might hear or see soon in Anaheim, or may have already seen in Anaheim are guys like Jake Jewell, Jose Suarez, Jaime Barria, Patrick Sandoval, and Nick Tropeano are in Salt Lake City and Luis Madero, Brett Hannewich, and Isaac Mattison are in Double-A now after starting the year in Inland Empire.

However, the names that you probably don’t know are those in Single-A.  We will take a look at each of the top 10 prospects in the Angels low minors. Now this list is based both on potential and performance that I have personally observed or heard about from different sources about the Burlington players.

I apologize in advance for the lack of interesting pictures as none of these players have photos in our picture database so I’m using stock photos.
