Shane Victorino

Out of the players mentioned on this list, outfielder Shane Victorino had the shortest and least memorable tenure as an Angel.

Los Angeles acquired the former World Champion with the Philadelphia Phillies and Boston Red Sox in a 2015 midseason trade with the latter.

In just 38 games as a Halo, Victorino hit a mere .214 with a .577 OPS and 65 OPS+ across 98 plate appearances. The Angels would miss the playoffs in 2015 and Victorino moved on after the season.

The 12-year outfielder’s two World Series rings look nice on his resume, but a career average of .275 with a .765 OPS and 102 OPS+ are rather middling figures, therefore rendering Victorino’s Hall of Fame chances pretty moot.
