The Los Angeles Angels are hoping for another good year in 2013 from Howie Kendrick

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Positional Preview for Season by joelapinski on Saturday 9 February 2013 at 5:04 pm

The Angels are hoping for another big year out of 29-year old righty swinging 2B Howie Kendrick.  Kendrick played in 147 games for the Angels last year and he was 158 of 550 (.287 avg, .725 OPS) with 57 runs scored, 8 homers, 67 RBIs and 14 stolen bases.  He played in 143 games (142 starts) at 2B for the Angels last year and he had 14 errors while showing slightly below average range.  Kendrick has now played in 802 games in his first seven years in the majors and he is 881 of 3,022 (.292 avg, .756 OPS) with 394 runs scored, 58 homers, 372 RBIs and 75 stolen bases.  25-year old righty swinging Thomas Field, 27-year old lefty swinging Andrew Romine and 32-year old switch-hitting Luis Rodriguez will duke it out this spring to see who will back up Kendrick at 2B in 2013.  Field played in 2 games for the Rockies last year and he was 0 for 2 (.000 avg, .333 OPS).  He also played in 121 games in AAA-ball for the Rockies last year in which he was 107 of 435 (.246 avg, .715 OPS) with 74 runs scored, 8 homers, 49 RBIs and 4 stolen bases.  He has now played in 18 games in his first two years in the majors and he is 13 of 50 (.260 avg, .575 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 0 homers and 3 RBIs.  Andrew Romine played in 12 games for the Angels last year and he was 7 for 17 (.412 avg, .912 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 0 homers, 1 RBI and 1 stolen base.  Romine also played in 87 games in AAA-ball for the Angels last year in which he was 100 of 351 (.285 avg, .726 OPS) with 57 runs scored, 4 homers, 39 RBIs and 23 stolen bases.  Romine has now played in 27 games in his first three years in the minors and he is 10 for 44 (.227 avg, .519 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 0 homers, 1 RBI and 2 stolen bases.  Luis Rodriguez played in 102 games in AAA-ball for the Mariners last year and he was 107 of 361 (.296 avg, .841 OPS) with 49 runs scored, 12 homers, 51 RBIs and 5 stolen bases.  Rodriguez last played in the majors in 2011 for the Mariners.  He has played in 407 games in his first six years in the majors and he is 231 of 972 (.238 avg, .638 OPS) with 100 runs scored, 10 homers, 80 RBIs and 6 stolen bases.
