This one is a bit more interesting, as Brandon Marsh has yet to play a single game in the MLB. Marsh is the Angels’ #2 prospect per MLB.com. Since being drafted in the second round of the 2016 draft, Marsh has done nothing but exceed expectation after expectation. That has continued, as Marsh is one of the Angels’ prospects tearing up the Arizona Fall League.
However, as stated earlier, the Angels have an immense amount of outfield talent in their organization. Upton and Trout aside, three of the Angels’ top five prospects (Adell, Marsh, and 2018 first rounder Jordyn Adams) reside in the outfield.

That doesn’t even mention Brian Goodwin, who showed last year he is a fantastic fourth outfielder and is under team control for three more years.
So, where does Marsh land on this? He’s just about ready for the bigs, unlike Adams who is years away, and will be stuck in Salt Lake City this season with Jo Adell’s expected arrival.
This is what makes Marsh a tradeable prospect. Teams around the MLB are reportedly in love with Marsh, and he should be one of the top 50-75 prospects in baseball this season. With such a great group of outfielders already in Anaheim (and more on the way), Brandon Marsh is a player the Angels could look to trade as the center piece of a blockbuster this winter.
