Baseball season is oh so close as teams have officially reported for spring training. On Monday, the Angels welcomed most of their completed roster to their training facility in Tempe, Arizona, as preparations for the 2021 season continue.
This article is part of our Halo Hangout Spring Training Guide, where we talk about position battles and players to watch for as the regular season closes in. So far we’ve covered the following topics: catcher, the rotation, and the outfield, and top prospects.
Today, we will discuss the players that will make up the infield, including nine players on the active roster and five non-roster invitees.
The Angels have a ton of talent among their starting infielders, along with players who will be fighting for reserve spots on the roster this spring.
When looking at the Angels roster, the infield seems set as spring training begins. This group includes one of the league’s best players, a glove-first player coming off a career season at the plate, everyone’s favorite swiss-army knife, and a shared spot between a guy looking to break out and one of the all-time greats ready to ride off into the sunset.
As for every Major League team, health is paramount, and keeping guys on the field will be critical throughout the season. Few teams have the talent on the infield that the Angels do with this group.
