LA Angels: 3 prospects who could make an impact in 2021
By Daniel Preciado
The Angels have a brighter future with their prospects than you might expect.
The Halos are a solid enough ball club that simply has not gotten over the hump in awhile. The lineup is one that you would believe is that of a contender. The rotation and bullpen are more of the middle of the road nature. Despite all of this, the Angels are in for some reinforcements in the form of prospects in the near future. The Halos called up Jo Adell in 2020 and while he was largely disappointing, he is still immensely talent. He will likely be a solid big league regular at the very least with an excellent chance to be a middle of the order type star.
With new general manager Perry Minasian in tow, the Angels could be in for a farm system improvement in the near future. The Angels’ system has been very middle of the road for awhile outside of Mike Trout and Jo Adell amongst recent graduates.
As we have mentioned in previous articles, the Angels do a very poor job in international free agency and that needs to change. The Angels have also not hit on many top draft picks in recent seasons so some luck and better player development could be a huge boon to a major league roster that needs help. As I mentioned, the tide could turn in the Angels’ direction if new general manager Perry Minasian can fill in the blanks for the Halos.
Let’s take a look at five prospects currently in the Angels’ system that you need to be looking out for in 2021.
