34-year old righty swinging Torii Hunter is one of the best all-around CF in baseball and the Angels need him to stay healthy in 2010. Hunter played in 119 games for the Angels last season and he was 135 of 451 (.299 avg, .873 OPS) with 74 runs scored, 22 homers, 90 RBIs and 18 stolen bases. Hunter still has 30/30 potential if he can stay healthy enough to play in 145+ games in 2010. Hunter only made 1 error in 115 games in CF last season while still showing good range. Hunter does get challenged on the bases as he only had 2 assists last season.

28-year old switch hitting Reggie Willits will backup Hunter in CF in 2010. He played in 49 games for the Angels last season and he was 17 of 80 (.213 avg, .493 OPS) with 16 runs scored, 6 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. Willits has a career batting average of .265 with a .675 OPS in 295 games in the majors so expect him to rebound with the bat in 2010. Willits played in 6 error-free games in CF last season for the Angels while showing slightly below average range.

PROJECTED GRADE FOR THE CF IN 2010: B+
