Only 136 days until the LA Angels open their season in Houston against the division rival Astros.

So why not predict who will take the field for the LA Angels next year? The General Manager meetings are beginning in Arizona this week, which indicates the unofficial beginning of the offseason. Teams and agents will begin laying the groundwork for potential deals. GM’s will begin floating potential trade ideas. So while we still have all of free agency to watch, there’s no better time than the present to predict the 2020 Opening Day roster.

Obviously this article will include some predictions in terms of free agency and/or trades. I did my best to keep things realistic, even with Arte Moreno’s comments about spending big this winter.

We all remember how awful the Angels free agent class of 2019 was. Headlined by Matt Harvey, Trevor Cahill, and Jonathan Lucroy, it was one of the most disappointing groups in Angels’ history. No player signed made a positive impact to the club (based on WAR), and that’s obviously something that will need to change in 2020 as the Angels hope to return to the playoffs under Joe Maddon.

So, without further ado, I bring to you the 2020 Opening Day roster for the Los Angeles Angels.
