Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,The Minors by joelapinski on Tuesday 29 March 2016 at 7:49 pm

26-year old righty reliever Deolis Guerra will be out several weeks after undergoing an emergency appendectomy.  He pitched in 7 games (0 starts) in spring training for the Los Angeles Angels and he was 0-1 with a 8.22 ERA and a 1.83 WHIP.  Guerra pitched in 10 games (0 starts) for the Pirates last year in his first taste of the majors and he was 2-0 with a 6.48 ERA and a 1.74 WHIP.  He also pitched in 25 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball last year in which he was 2-1 with 4 saves, a 1.23 ERA and a 0.79 WHIP.  Guerra will have to work his way to L.A. after he gets healthy.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Tuesday 29 March 2016 at 2:45 pm

The Los Angeles Angels have sent 29-year old righty reliever Al Alburquerque to AAA to open the 2016 season.  He pitched in 8 games (0 starts) this spring for the Angels and he was 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP.  He pitched in 67 games (0 starts) for the Tigers last year and he was 4-1 with a 4.21 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP.  Alburquerque has pitched in 241 games (0 starts) in his first five years in the show and he is 17-6 with 1 save, a 3.20 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP.  I have a feeling that Alburquerque will pitch at some point in 2016 for the Angels, as he has outstanding stuff.

Achter, 30-year old righty reliever Javy Guerra and 31-year old righty swinging infielder Gregorio Petit to the minors to begin the 2016 season.  Tropeano pitched in 3 games (all starts) in spring training for the Angels and he was 1-0 with a 6.23 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP.  He pitched in 8 games (7 starts) for the Angels last year and he was 3-2 with a 3.82 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 12 games (11 starts) in his first two years in the show and he is 4-5 with a 4.10 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP.  Luetge pitched in 7 games (0 starts) this spring and he was 0-0 with 1 save, a 3.86 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP.  He pitched in 1 game out of the pen for the Mariners last year and he was 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP.  Luetge has now pitched in 111 games (0 starts) in his first four years in the majors and he is 3-5 with 2 saves, a 4.35 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP.  Achter pitched in 9 games (0 starts) this spring and he was 1-0 with 1 save, a 0.93 ERA and a 0.83 WHIP.  He pitched in 11 games (0 starts) for the Twins last year and he was 0-1 with a 6.75 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP.  Achter has now pitched in 18 games (0 starts) in his first two years in the show and he is 1-1 with a 5.18 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP.  Guerra pitched in 8 games (0 starts) in spring training for the Angels and he was 0-0 with a 3.00 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP.  He pitched in 3 games (0 starts) for the White Sox last year and he was 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 1.80 WHIP.  Guerra has now pitched in 146 games (0 starts) in his first five years in the show and he is 6-9 with 30 saves, a 2.87 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP.  Petit played in 18 games this spring and he was 10 for 32 (.313 avg, .927 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 2 homers and 6 RBIs.  He played in 20 games for the Yankees last year and he was 7 for 42 (.167 avg, .455 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 0 homers and 5 RBIs.  Petit has now played in 82 games in his first four years in the show and he is 49 of 193 (.254 avg, .640 OPS) with 27 runs scored, 2 homers and 15 RBIs.  I can see all of these guys playing for the Angels at some point in 2016, as their minor league system doesn’t have much talent at the top of it right now.

The Los Angeles Angels send Quintin Berry to AAA

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Sunday 27 March 2016 at 7:35 am

The Los Angeles Angels have sent 31-year old lefty swinging outfielder Quintin Berry to AAA-ball.  Berry played in 8 games for the Cubs last year and he was 0 for 1 (.000 avg, .000 OPS) with 1 run scored and 2 stolen bases.  He also played in 111 games in AAA-ball last year in which he was 84 of 373 (.225 avg, .607 OPS) with 44 runs scored, 4 homers, 38 RBIs and 35 stolen bases.  Berry has played in 125 games in his first four years in the show and he is 80 for 302 (.265 avg, .704 OPS) with 53 runs scored, 3 homers, 33 RBIs and 27 stolen bases.  Berry could make it back to the majors at some point in 2016.

The Los Angeles Angels have released 23-year old lefty swinging 1B/OF Trevor Gretzky.  Gretzky played in 78 games in A-ball last year and he was 64 of 264 (.242 avg, .630 OPS) with 29 runs scored, 2 homers, 21 RBIs and 5 stolen bases.  He has played in 215 games in his first four years in the minors (never about A-ball) and he was 190 of 735 (.259 avg, .638 OPS) with 85 runs scored, 6 homers, 58 RBIs and 16 stolen bases.  This isn’t much of a loss for the Angels, as Gretzky didn’t show much in the minors for them.  And yes, he is the son of Wayne Gretzky!

Nate Smith is a rising pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Sunday 6 March 2016 at 7:43 am

The Los Angeles Angels dealt starting pitchers Sean Newcomb and Chris Ellis over the winter to the Atlanta Braves for shortstop Andrelton Simmons.  That has moved 24-year old lefty starting pitcher Nate Smith up the prospect rankings for the Angels, as he is currently their #3 prospect according to Baseball America.  Smith pitched in 24 games (all starts) in AA+AAA-ball last year for the Angels and he is 10-8 with a 3.86 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP.  Smith has now pitched in 60 games (54 starts) in his first three years in the minors and he is 23-16 with a 3.50 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP.  Smith might be the first starting pitcher called up this year by the Angels if the need arises.

28-year old lefty swinging outfielder Robbie Widlansky is having a solid year in the minors for the Angels.  He has played in 96 games in AA+AAA-ball so far this year and he is 93 of 336 (.277 avg, .758 OPS) with 44 runs scored, 10 homers, 52 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.  Widlansky has now played in 647 games in his first seven years in the minors and he is 671 of 2,343 (.286 avg, .773 OPS) with 297 runs scored, 50 homers, 351 RBIs and 26 stolen bases.  As good as he has played this year, he’s still a longshot to get called up when rosters expand next week.
