Jo Adell and Brandon Marsh shine

Fans will get to see the Angels top prospects shine while at spring training, which will help Maddon and his staff gauge where the two are in terms of readiness and how much longer they will need.

Adell may be the first to come up, so long as he wows everyone during spring training, as he is ranked No. 6 on the top 100 prospects list on, which certainly bodes well for him waiting the call up.

Adell’s teammate, Brandon Marsh, may join him not so long after, as he is right behind him on the depth chart. However, he has shown that although he has raw power needs to cut his swings and misses down. If both somehow get to MLB this year, there will be a log jam with Upton, Trout, and Goodwin all seemingly having spots in the outfield, with Goodwin being the odd man out in a utility and grooming role.

While Marsh could be the one to get traded in a package in hopes of the Angels getting the pitching help they need, Marsh should remain because of the chemistry he has shown with Adell. If both of these rising superstars impress in spring, then having a dream outfield of Marsh, Adell, and Trout leading the charge could come sooner rather than later.
