The Angels have lost 25-year old righty swinging outfielder Chris Pettit for the 2010 season. He underwent surgery earlier today to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. Pettit played in 10 games for the Angels last season and he was 2 of 7 (.286 avg, .571 OPS) with 2 runs scored. He also played in 100 games in Rookie+A-ball last season in which he was 124 of 385 (.322 avg, .867 OPS) with 72 runs scored, 8 homers, 59 RBIs and 19 stolen bases. Pettit was the Angels’ #16 prospect coming into this season according to Baseball America. This is a bad break for both Pettit and the Angels as he had a legit chance to make the team as a reserve outfielder this spring.
