Number 3 reason Jo Adell should be brought up: Adell can provide depth

There’s a reason that Angels fans felt a little nervous when Justin Upton left the contest after a collision in shallow-left field.

Upton will be okay, but the thought of already missing Trout for a while, along with another starting outfielder isn’t a very fun thought to have.

The entire league has seen so many injuries this year. What if Upton does get hurt, or what if Juan Lagares or Taylor Ward gets injured? Then, the Angels are in a really tough spot when it comes to having outfield bodies they can count on.

The injury bug has landed on the Angels at times this season, and has also threated to land on the Angels at other times this season. It’s important to have a young player like Adell who could use extended playing time in a situation like that, and also has upside to be a star in an injured outfielder’s place.

It’s already June, and the Angels need a spark. They’re six games back of the division lead, and bringing up a player who will provide instant power to a lineup could work wonders for the Halos.

There’s solid arguments for both sides to the Adell conversation. Head back to halohangout.com in a few hours for the other perspective.
