The Los Angeles Angels will be an interesting team to watch, and these three hitters are going to pivotal to their hopes in 2020.

The 2020 MLB season gets underway on Thursday night, but the Los Angeles Angels will need to wait until Friday before they get their Opening Day match-up. Once things get underway, it is going to be an all-out sprint to the finish line.

One of the beautiful things about a shortened season is that anything can happen. While the Angels are not perfect on paper, they do have just as much chance as any other team in the league.

In fact, the Angels may have something that separates them from the rest of the league.

When the Halos meet up with the Oakland Athletics on Opening Day, they will bring with them one of the most formidable lineups in baseball. Sure, most of the pieces were already in place, including the best player in the game in Mike Trout. However, the addition of Anthony Rendon and a fully healthy Shohei Ohtani makes the Angels one of the deepest collection of hitters in the game.

However, while they feature quite a bit of thump in their batting order, there are a few players that fans will want to watch closely outside of the big sticks. These three hitters may be overlooked on most daily columns, but each will have a part to play in the success of the team during the 2020 season.

Let’s take a look at three unsung Angels hitters to watch in 2020.
