36-year old righty swinging RF Torii Hunter will likely see a lot of good pitches in 2012 as he will likely be batting in front of Albert Pujols. Hunter played in 156 games for the Angels last year and he was 152 of 580 (.262 avg, .765 OPS) with 80 runs scored, 23 homers, 82 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. He has now played in 573 games in his first four years with the Angels and he is 601 of 2,155 (.279 avg, .814 OPS) with 315 runs scored, 89 homers, 340 RBIs and 51 stolen bases. Hunter has now played in 1,807 games in his first 15 years in the NFL and he is 1,819 of 6,647 (.274 avg, .800 OPS) with 987 runs scored, 281 homers, 1,051 RBIs and 177 stolen bases. Hunter played in 136 games in RF for the Angels last year and he had 15 assists and 3 errors while showing good range there.

If Hunter were to get hurt, the Angels would likely call up Mike Trout to replace him. Trout played in 13 games in RF for the Angels last year and had 1 error there while showing terrible range.

PROJECTED GRADE FOR THE RF IN 2012: B+
