The Angels missed out on Adrian Beltre but they can’t be too sad because they’re some top notch talent on the way in the next few years. Kevin Goldstein put out his top eleven Angels prospect list and the Angels have two five stars and three four stars at the top of the list. Coming in at number one was Mike Trout, the Angels first round pick in 2009. This outfielder can rake and while he’s still probably over a year away, he’s moving up the ladder quickly.
Number two is second baseman Jean Segura. Also a couple of years away, this guy can also rake and Goldstein talks about how the Angels relish the idea of Seguara and Archer hitting at the top of the Angels lineup in the future.
Jordan Walden is third and he’s the top pitching prospect. He’s major league ready and got some time with the Angels in 2010. He’s been deemed the closer of the future but this year he’ll probably round out a solid pen. Hank Conger (catcher, major league ready) and Kaleb Cowart (Angels first round pick in 2010) round out the top five.
Overall, Goldstein says the Angels are a top ten system. He seems really high on Trout so he bears keeping an eye on.
