No. 1 LA Angels player most likely to be traded after MLB lockout: Brandon Marsh
Back when Luis Castillo to the LA Angels rumors were a bit hotter, Brandon Marsh was expected to be the man to go by MLB Insider Jon Morosi. Marsh is similar to Adell in which he's one of few TREMENDOUS prospects that the Halos have, but that also would make for a lot of teams around the league to be intrigued.
And for the record, like with Adell, I don't want to see Marsh traded for the same reasons. We found ourselves a special talent that we're about to finish developing, so why move him? Realistically, though, he's the No. 1 Angel that teams are going to call us for.
He has ridiculous upside with his potential power and speed combination. He already has proven to be a plus defender in this league, and that speed is so valuable out in center or anywhere in the outfield.
If you're an Angels fan who wants the Halos to trade for a Castillo, or a Chris Bassitt, or maybe a Frankie Montas, that's understandable. Due to us not having a strong farm, though, we may only have a couple of top prospects that can get us that type of return. Trading for a top starting pitcher may mean trading one of our top two young guns.
