Top LA Angels prospect Brandon Marsh has been tearing it up in Salt Lake ever since he came back from his shoulder injury.

He was experiencing right shoulder inflammation and missed time from June 2nd to July 3rd. He played in the Arizona Complex League for four games (rookie ball) and then he checked in at Triple-A Salt Lake.

In the Arizona Complex League, Marsh went 7 for 14 with seven RBI. It wasn’t even fair. It didn’t stop when he went to Triple-A, by the way.

Top LA Angels prospect, Brandon Marsh, has raked off of Triple-A pitching ever since he returned to Salt Lake.

Brandon Marsh is doing exactly what the LA Angels wanted to see from their bright prospect.

As of July 16th, Marsh has played in seven games since his Triple-A return.

He’s on a seven game hitting streak with 11 hits in 30 at-bats. He’s only hit one homer, but he’s hit a couple doubles, and even has a couple triples in those 30 ABs.

Marsh picked up right where he left off when he left Arizona for Salt Lake.

His defense has been great this year, only making one error in all games he’s played in all year; at both levels.

With the Adam Eaton signing, it looks like the Angels aren’t interested in bringing up Jo Adell or Brandon Marsh.

If they do, however, Marsh has looked phenomenal since returning from his injury, and the Halos could very well want to go with the hot hand.

Next. Releasing Albert Pujols was the right decision

We may see Marsh sometime this season, no matter what. This Angels outfield has dealt with lots of injuries, and it may even be in the Halos’ best interest to keep Mike Trout out for much longer than expected, so he can’t re-injure his calf. Marsh may need to be called up for depth at some point, so keep an eye on the surging prospect.
