Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by joelapinski on Sunday 22 September 2013 at 8:31 am

You would never now that the Angels were stinking it out this year if you concentrated on watching 22-year old righty swinging outfielder Mike Trout.  He finished #2 in the A.L. MVP Voting last year and he is showing this year that was only a glimpse of things to come.  Trout has played in 150 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 186 of 568 (.327 avg, .999 OPS) with 108 runs scored, 26 homers, 92 RBIs and 33 stolen bases.  Trout also has walked an A.L. leading 102 times while whiffing 125 times so far this year.  Trout is leading the Angels in both runs scored (108) and stolen bases (33) in 2013 and he is also second on the team in both homers (26) and RBIs (92).  Trout has now played in 329 games in his first three years with the Angels and he is 395 of 1,250 (.316 avg, .952 OPS) with 257 runs scored, 61 homers, 191 RBIs and 86 stolen bases.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by joelapinski on Thursday 5 September 2013 at 7:48 am

25-year old switch-hitting catcher Hank Conger is hot at the plate right now.  He has played in 22 games since August 1st for the Angels and he is 18 of 59 (.305 avg) with 6 runs scored, 1 homer and 6 RBIs.  Conger has now played in 79 games for the Angels overall this year and he is 52 of 201 (.259 avg, .751 OPS) with 22 runs scored, 7 homers and 20 RBIs.  Conger is starting to prove that he could handle being the starting catcher for the Angels as early as next year.

J.B. Shuck has been a pleasant surprise in 2013 for the Los Angeles Angels

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by joelapinski on Wednesday 21 August 2013 at 7:57 am

26-year old lefty swinging outfielder J.B. Shuck has been a pleasant surprise for the Angels in 2013.  He has played in 99 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 94 of 319 (.295 avg, .714 OPS) with 43 runs scored, 2 homers, 31 RBIs and 5 stolen bases.  Shuck has really been hot so far in August for the Angels.  He has played in 19 games for the Angels so far this month and he is 22 of 68 (.324 avg, .785 OPS) with 10 runs scored, 1 homer, 10 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Shuck will get to play a lot the rest of this year, as he has been a nice asset for them in 2013.

Mark Trumbo is playing well for the Los Angeles Angels

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by joelapinski on Saturday 22 June 2013 at 7:28 am

27-year old righty swinging 1B/DH/OF Mark Trumbo is really hitting the ball hard for the Angels so far this year.  He has played in 74 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 75 of 287 (.261 avg, .830 OPS) with 42 runs scored, 17 homers, 50 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.  Trumbo is leading the Angels in HRs and RBIs so far this year and he is second on the team in runs scored.  He has slowed down so far in June, but he is still hitting for power.  Trumbo has played in 19 games so far this month and he is 15 for 68 (.221 avg, .772 OPS) with 12 runs scored, 5 homers and 13 RBIs.  The Angels hope that Trumbo gets back on the track later on this month.

Howie Kendrick is having a true breakout year for the Los Angeles Angels in 2013

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by joelapinski on Tuesday 11 June 2013 at 11:54 am

29-year old righty swinging 2B Howie Kendrick is having a true breakout year in 2013.  He has played in 64 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 78 for 246 (.317 avg, .819 OPS) with 28 runs scored, 8 homers, 32 RBIs and 6 stolen bases.  Kendrick is off to a really hot start in June, as he has played in 9 games so far this month in which he is 15 of 35 (.429 avg, .988 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 1 homer, 3 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Kendrick has career highs coming into this season of 86 runs scored, 18 homers, 75 RBIs and 14 stolen bases.  If Kendrick stays healthy, I think he will set new career highs in all four of the categories mentioned.

Mike Trout is playing well for the Los Angeles Angels in 2013

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by joelapinski on Tuesday 14 May 2013 at 7:46 am

21-year old righty swinging LF Mike Trout is having a solid year for the Angels in 2013.  He has played in 38 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 45 of 159 (.283 avg, .851 OPS) with 24 runs scored, 6 homers, 25 RBIs and 6 stolen bases.  A lot of people are likely a little down on Trout, as he is coming nowhere near his production level of 2012.  He played in 139 games for the Angels last year and he was 182 of 559 (.326 avg, .963 OPS) with 129 runs scored, 30 homers, 83 RBIs and 49 stolen bases.  Still, Trout has been one of the most productive hitters on the Angels so far this year and he could go on a tear at any time with the bat.

Mark Trumbo is ripping the ball for the Los Angeles Angels in 2013

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by joelapinski on Thursday 9 May 2013 at 11:01 am

Mike Trout, Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton get all of the headlines, but 27-year old righty swinging 1B/DH Mark Trumbo has been the best hitter on the Angels so far this year.  He has played in 33 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 39 for 134 (.291 avg, .910 OPS) with 17 runs scored, 9 homers, 23 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  He has whiffed 39 times so far this year, but the Angels will accept the whiffs for the power that Trumbo provides them.  Trumbo has now played in 334 games in his first four years with the Angels and he is 323 of 1,232 (.262 avg, .795 OPS) with 150 runs scored, 70 homers, 207 RBIs and 14 stolen bases.

Luis Jimenez is off to a good start for the Los Angeles Angels

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by joelapinski on Tuesday 16 April 2013 at 6:19 pm

With starting 3B Alberto Callaspo hurting right now, 25-year old righty swinging Luis Jimenez is getting his first shot at the show.  He has played in 4 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 5 for 12 (.417 avg, 1.045 OPS) with 1 run scored and 2 doubles.  Jimenez has also played in 8 games in AAA-ball so far this year and he is 11 for 30 (.367 avg, .991 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 1 homer, 4 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Jimenez came into this season as the Angels’ #17 prospect according to Baseball America.  If he stays hot, he might just bump Callaspo to the bench.

Albert Pujols is ripping the ball for the Los Angeles Angels

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by joelapinski on Thursday 11 April 2013 at 2:12 pm

33-year old righty swinging 1B Albert Pujols signed a 10-year, $240 million dollar deal with the Angels two winters ago.  He played in 154 games for the Angels in the first year of his deal in 2012 and he was 173 of 607 (.285 avg, .859 OPS) with 85 runs scored, 30 homers, 105 RBIs and 8 stolen bases.  He got off to a really slow start last year before coming on strongly the last four months.  This year has been different though as Pujols is off to a hot start with the bat in 2013 for the Angels.  He has played in 8 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 9 for 26 (.346 avg, 1.206 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 2 homers and 5 RBIs.  Pujols is really locked in at the plate as he has already walked 9 times while only walking 3 times so far this year.  Pujols could be in for a huge year with the bat in 2013 for the Angels.
