Left field is still a wide open competition this spring for the Los Angeles Angels. 26-year old switch-hitting Todd Cunningham is the best bet here. He comes into this season as the Angels’ #26 prospect despite being acquired off waivers over the winter from the Atlanta Braves. Cunningham played in 39 games for the Braves last year and he was 19 of 86 (.221 avg, .547 OPS) with 13 runs scored, 0 homers, 4 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. He also played in 97 games in AAA-ball for the Braves last year in which he was 86 of 329 (.261 avg, .663 OPS) with 42 runs scored, 2 homers, 31 RBIs and 9 stolen bases. Another option would be to use Cunningham in a platoon with 33-year old switch-hitting Daniel Nava or 32-year old righty swinging Craig Gentry OR the Angels could platoon Gentry and Nava in LF. Nava played in 60 games for the Red Sox and Rays last year in which he was 27 of 139 (.194 avg, .560 OPS) with 13 runs scored, 1 homer, 10 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Gentry played in 26 games for the A’s last year and he was 6 for 50 (.120 avg, .396 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 0 homers, 3 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Not too impressive. But, Nava has a career .281 batting average with a .787 OPS against righty pitchers and Gentry has a career .274 batting average with a .720 OPS against lefty pitchers. So you can see what the front office is thinking. Austin Jackson recently rejected a one year offer from the Angels. If none of these three guys step up this spring, the Angels should think about signing Marlon Byrd or Alex Rios to a 1-year, incentive laden deal.
