Continuing with our spring training guide for the 2021 season, we’ll be going through the Angels outfield as there are some questions to answer in the next few weeks. Other than having the best player in baseball patrolling center field, they have a solid group of outfielders that they can platoon.
A mix of youth, veterans, and the best player in baseball will make up the Angels outfield this spring.
With the way it’s shaping up right now, it’s safe enough to say that surrounding Mike Trout in left and right field will be Justin Upton and Dexter Fowler. Both offer experience in the outfield as Angels fans know what they’re getting with Upton, but with Fowler, they’ll be getting someone who can keep the clubhouse loose with his personality and can play a decent right field.
The bigger questions will be with their younger players in Jo Adell and Brandon Marsh.
At some point, the Angels would like to give both of their top prospects significant repetitions at the big league level. It’s not so much a matter if they will make it to the big leagues, but when they arrive in Anaheim.
Maybe there’s a chance a solid spring camp could have one or both make the opening day roster, but it would take a lot for that to happen.
Regardless, the Halos will have plenty of options to choose from in the next few weeks.
