An inventory of the Angels trade assets

It’s no secret the Angels will be (and currently are) on the hunt for offense come trading season. Even with Chris Iannetta heating up and Pujols’ inevitable “resurgence” (really, it just means he won’t be as bad as he has been) the Angels offense would merely grade out as weak.

Arguing with ourselves: The wretched Angels offense

Welcome to the 2015 version of the Los Angeles Angels. I’ll bet most of the fans coming into this season didn’t expect to see the Angels offense be the team’s largest question mark. Or, in all actuality, it’s only question mark. It’s crazy, right? It is borderline absurd even that of all the things that fans have come to complain about over the last few years, the offense...

Top AAA Starting Pitchers

Angels Prospect Spotlight: Sean Newcomb and Jeremy Rhoades

The Angels are a pitching heavy organization. This extends from the majors all the way down to Rookie Ball. They have their starting five, and then still hold onto Nick Tropeano and Andrew Heaney in AAA purely as depth. They have Tyler Skaggs returning next season, where he’ll project into the middle of the rotation. They even have a wealth of arms in AA like Nate Smith, Tyler...

How does Andrew Heaney fit in the Angels rotation?

Kendrick was traded on December 11th, 2014 Howie Kendrick had quite a career with the Los Angeles Angels. In 1,081 career at-bats, he had a .292 batting average. That is all but a distant memory for Halo fans. In his stead comes 23 year old starting pitcher, Andrew Heaney. This Oklahoma native has yet to earn a big-league win. So what is all the fuss about?
