LA Angels: 3 prospects who should not be included in trade talks
By Evan Desai
No. 1 LA Angels prospect who should not be included in trade talks: Brandon Marsh
The LA Angels should just slap themselves in the face if they trade Brandon Marsh.
Marsh has been unstoppable in Triple-A lately. In his first eight games in Triple-A since his shoulder injury, he’s hit .382/.417/.735 with two home runs and six RBI.
Marsh is the number one prospect in the Angels organization, and has been sensational since he came back from injury.
He came back and originally played in the Arizona Complex League for four games before he went back to Salt Lake. He dominated in that league too, going 7 for 14 with seven runs driven in.
The Halos have found a gem in Marsh. Trading him while he’s hot and even now playing for our Major League team would be incredibly stupid.
Trading any of these guys would not be the move. We do want to go on a run here to make the playoffs this year, but we also need to keep the future in mind.
We’re playing solid baseball and will improve as the season goes on regardless of whether we trade anybody or not. Therefore, the last thing we want to do is trade one of our best and only bright spots of our farm system.
