Found May 13, 2013 on Angelswin:
PLAYERS: Mike Morin
TEAMS: Los Angeles Angels
Armed with the best change-up in the Angels system according to Ric Wilson, Morin has taken the lead in the 66ers bullpen. Not only does the 21-year-old Morin have 24 Ks 2 1/3 IP to go along with a 2.01 ERA, but he has only allowed two walks on the season. Morin's fastball is not on the same level as a Scoggins or Sappington, it is respectable, in the low 90s and he complements it with a solid curve. With the Angels lack of depth out of the bullpen, look for Morin to shoot up the depth chart and possibly compete for a spot in the Angels bullpen in 2014. For now, get to know Michael Morin a little more by watching our interview with the future star.  Mike Morin 04-24-2013 from AngelsWin.com on Vimeo.
