Is Kaleb Cowart A Top Prospect Again?

The Angels have a lot of exciting pitching prospects. Andrew Heaney and Sean Newcomb are the only arms that get any real national hype, but aren’t the lone pitchers of promise in the system. Guys like Nick Tropeano, Nate Smith, Chris Ellis, Jeremy Rhoades, and Tyler DeLoach are solid in their own right, and (along with several others) have helped give the organization a depth of...

Searching for Kaleb Cowart

Ever since he was drafted, Kaleb Cowart has intrigued me as a prospect analyst.  He’s a unique player in that many of his perceived strengths are typically weaknesses in other players while his weaknesses are things that come to other prospects rather easily.  Case in point…. 1. Cowart is well-built, but his power is still predominantly gap power because of a line-drive type...

Do the Angels have any trade assets left?

The Angels supposedly have one of the worst farm systems in baseball and have already made two trades, both of which they seemingly overpaid in, and yet their name continues to come up in trade rumors. How can this be? What could they possibly have left to deal? Sometimes rumors have a way of getting out of control and losing all touch with reality. How else do you expect writers...

David Freese trade thoughts..

By Greg Bearringer, AngelsWin.com Columnist - 1) David Freese might as well wear a sign that says "average third baseman" around his neck, because I think that's probably what the Angels are expecting out of him next season. He is probably better that (since he has pretty good plate discipline), but a back injury might just eat into his playing time over the next two seasons. Barring...
