Our AngelsWin.com minor league photographer Jeremy Long was recently credentialed by MLB.com with a photographer's pass and captured some amazing shots of three of our top ten prospects heading into 2013 in Travis Witherspoon, Randal Grichuk & Kaleb Cowart. See the slideshow under my reports!
In talking to a scout recently and Jeremy who has seen these three guys this season with the 66ers, here's a quick update on the trio.
Cowart first full professional season with Angels between two levels (Cedar Rapids, IE 66ers) was a good one. The Halos 3B prospect showed signs of having solid power down the road clubbing 31 doubles, 7 triples and 16 home runs while demonstrating an advanced approach at the plate. Cowart's 45 walks in 69 games ranked fourth in the league during his time with the 66er's in High-A Ball (.358 OBP overall). According to Jeremy Long and a scout I spoke to recently, Cowart looks like he's spent after loggin...
BEST OF MAXIM
Be prepared for the Angels to make at least one trade this week. At this point, it will be an upset if they do not.
The team, according to major-league sources, is aggressively trying to move right-handers Dan Haren and Ervin Santana before deciding on their respective -- and expensive -- club options for 2013.
"I think they trade both guys," one rival executive said...
Yesterday, the Kansas City Royals traded for pitcher Ervin Santana. Santana had spent his entire career with the Los Angeles Angels up to this point and had seen equal amounts of success and failure. He was a main part of the Angels rotation in 2011 and threw a no-hitter. Then, in 2012, something changed. He regressed. There was no apparent reason for the regression. Now...
The Red Sox have fired up the hot stove, and they're apparently looking to get it cooking nice and early.
The Boston Globe's Nick Cafardo reports via Twitter that the Sox are one of the teams interested in Los Angeles Angels right-handed pitcher Dan Haren.
Red Sox one of several teams in on Dan Haren.

Free agency opens in just a few days and we've all already heard a great deal about who the Angels are interested in or should be interested in. In fact, we've probably heard these speculative suggestions more than any of us care to. Yet what nobody ever mentions are the guys that could interest the Angels but really shouldn't. As the Tony Reagins era taught us...
The Kansas City Royals continued their quest to build a legitimate starting rotation on Wednesday by acquiring Ervin Santana from the Los Angeles Angels. Santana endured the worst season of his career in 2012 when he posted an ERA over 5 and gave up a league high 38 homeruns. However, Santana is a former all-star and has proven on more than one occasion that he's capable...
Ben and Sam discuss what the Ervin Santana trade says about the Royals` rotation and the pitching market, then talk about what Rick Hahn`s ascension to the GM role in Chicago means for the future of front offices.
Here are the latest rumors regarding Free Agent in the Major Leagues:
– The Angels' top priority this offseason is to re-sign right handed pitcher Zack Greinke according to Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com. They will face some fierce competition though, since the Rangers are interested in him also.
– Even though the White Sox declined Kevin Youkilis' option, they would...
Tweet The Kansas City Royals need starting pitching help. The Los Angeles Angels had two whom they held pricey club options on for the 2013 season. Now, they have just one. Today the Angels sent 29-yeard old right-hander Ervin Santana to the Royals in exchange for left-handed pitcher Brandon Sisk and cash considerations. [...]
