Mike Trout Picked As Third Best Prospect by

by @ 8:00 am. Filed under 2012 Angels

Mike Trout was picked as the number three prospect in all of baseball by  The guy can rake and after he dominated the Texas League, he was bumped all the way up to the big league’s where he struggled as a 20 year old.

Trout had 18 doubles, 13 triples and 11 home runs in the Texas League and that got him a .958 OPS.  Throw in 33 stolen bases and he had a very productive 2011 season.  He also has a nice eye at the plate and it’ll be fun seeing Trout roaming the outfield for the Angels for the next few years.

Angels Sign Erick Aybar to One Year Deal

by @ 6:50 pm. Filed under Uncategorized

The Angels inked Erick Aybar to a one year deal at $5.075 million and they’re still keeping their prospects open for a long term deal.  The shortstop had a nice season for the Angels in 2011 and he finished with a career high 10 home runs and 30 stolen bases.  He also got his strikeouts down and won his first gold glove.

Aybar has been the starting shortstop for the past three seasons and so far, 2009 has probably been his best season but 2011 was a close second.  It’ll be interesting if they can get a longer term deal done because the Angels have a lot of money tied up already.  Still, they seem committed to win and having an Aybar/Kendricks infield looks like who they’re interested in.
