Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,The Minors by chinmusic on Wednesday 21 March 2012 at 4:59 pm

The Angels will be without 24-year old lefty swinging outfielder Jeremy Moore for the next 3-5 months due to hip surgery. Moore comes into this season as the Angels’ #11 prospect according to Baseball America. Moore played in 8 games for the Angels last year and he was 1 for 8 (.125 avg, .250 OPS) with 3 runs scored. He also played in 113 games in AAA-ball for the Angels last year and he was 127 of 426 (.298 avg, .876 OPS) with 76 runs scored, 15 homers, 66 RBIs and 21 stolen bases. Moore has played in 611 games in his first 7 years in the minors and he is 620 of 2,241 (.277 avg, .803 OPS) with 351 runs scored, 75 homers, 327 RBIs and 124 stolen bases. This is a bad break for Moore as he was likely going to have a good shot to make the team this spring.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by chinmusic on Wednesday 1 February 2012 at 1:24 pm

20-year old righty reliever Daniel Reynolds has been suspended for 50 games for testing positive for a drug of abuse. Reynolds pitched in 20 games (0 starts) in rookie ball last year and he was 3-2 with 9 saves, a 4.60 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP. He has now pitched in 24 games (0 starts) in his first two years in the minors and he is 3-2 with 9 saves, a 3.93 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP. Hopefully Reynolds cleans up his act and learns from his mistakes.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,The Minors by chinmusic on Wednesday 17 August 2011 at 5:49 pm

21-year old righty swinging 1B/DH C.J. Cron was the #17 overall pick in the first round of the 2011 Amateur Draft last June. He decided to get right to work despite having a tear in his right shoulder that will need surgery at the end of the year. Cron played in 34 games in Rookie ball this year and he was 44 for 143 (.308 avg, 1.000 OPS) with 30 runs scored, 13 homers and 41 RBIs. He was DHing this year to protect his shoulder, but he will miss the rest of this season due to surgery on his right knee to repair ligament damage after he dislocated the knee over the weekend. Cron has a huge upside for the Angels and he should be ready to go next spring.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by chinmusic on Monday 15 August 2011 at 4:31 pm

24-year old lefty swinging outfielder Matt Long has been playing great baseball for the Angels this year in A-ball. Long has played in 115 games in A-ball this year and he is 138 for 455 (.303 avg, .898 OPS) with 100 runs scored, 16 homers, 72 RBIs and 26 stolen bases. He has now played in 295 games in his first three years in the minors and he is 336 for 1,121 (.300 avg, .853 OPS) with 225 runs scored, 22 homers, 177 RBIs and 52 stolen bases. With the Angels’ current outfield being a little long in tooth, the Angels might be moving Long up soon to AA.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by chinmusic on Friday 8 July 2011 at 2:31 pm

23-year old righty swinging 3B Luis Jimenez came into this season as the Angels’ #22 prospect according to Baseball America and he’s showing why in AA-ball so far this year. Jimenez has played in 75 games in AA-ball for the Angels so far this year and he is 86 for 290 (.297 avg, .862 OPS) with 41 runs scored, 12 homers, 67 RBIs and 11 stolen bases. He has now played in 357 games in his first five years in the minors and he is 421 for 1,390 (.303 avg, .878 OPS) with 243 runs scored, 53 homers, 278 RBIs and 58 stolen bases. Jimenez might be the kind of prospect the Angels offer up in deals this month.

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,The Minors by chinmusic on Friday 8 July 2011 at 2:26 pm

The Angels have called up 19-year old righty swinging CF Mike Trout. Trout came into this season as the Angels’ #1 prospect according to Baseball America. Trout has played in 75 games in AA-ball for the Angels this year and he is 94 for 290 (.324 avg, .950 OPS) with 69 runs scored, 9 homers, 27 RBIs and 28 stolen bases. He has now played in 250 games in his first three years in the minors and he is 330 for 977 (.338 avg, .925 OPS) with 205 runs scored, 20 homers, 110 RBIs and 97 stolen bases. Trout will replace 24-year old righty swinging Peter Bourjos in CF this weekend due to a hamstring injury. Bourjos has played in 86 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 78 for 287 (.272 avg, .720 OPS) with 33 runs scored, 3 homers, 17 RBIs and 11 stolen bases. It will be interesting to see what the Angels decide to do if Bourjos doesn’t need to go on the D.L. and Trout gets off to a hot start.

Gil Velazquez has been ripping the baseball in the minors for the Los Angeles Angels

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by chinmusic on Tuesday 28 June 2011 at 2:36 pm

31-year old righty swinging SS/2B Gil Velazquez has been ripping the ball in AAA for the Angels. Velazquez has played in 67 games in AAA-ball so far this year and he is 79 for 225 (.351 avg, .898 OPS) with 35 runs scored, 4 homers, 38 RBIs and 8 stolen bases. Velazquez hasn’t been known as much of a hitter until this season, so it might be the thin air of the PCL that’s the real reason for his pumped up numbers. He has played in 9 games in his major league career and he is 1 for 10 (.100 avg, .282 OPS) with 1 RBI. Velazquez is blocked on the Angels by more talented players in the infield, so he won’t likely get a chance in the majors unless the Angels suffer multiple injuries in the middle infield.

Jean Segura has had a solid career in the minors so far for the Los Angeles Angels

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by chinmusic on Tuesday 7 June 2011 at 5:16 pm

21-year old righty swinging 2B Jean Segura was the Angels’ #3 prospect coming into this season according to Baseball America. Segura played in 37 games in A-ball so far this year and he is 42 for 152 (.276 avg, .771 OPS) with 24 runs scored, 3 homers, 19 RBIs and 18 stolen bases. Segura has now played in 282 games in his first five years in the minors and he is 347 for 1,103 (.315 avg, .848 OPS) with 200 runs scored, 18 homers, 156 RBIs and 102 stolen bases. Segura is the Angels’ 2B of the future, but they are going to take things slow with him.

The Los Angeles Angels lose Cameron Bedrosian for the year

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,The Minors by chinmusic on Wednesday 18 May 2011 at 3:09 pm

The Angels will be without 19-year old righty starting pitcher Cameron Bedrosian for the 2011 season and likely part of the 2012 season as he had Tommy John Surgery earlier this month. Bedrosian came into this season as the Angels’ #10 prospect according to Baseball America. He did not pitch at all this year. He pitched in 5 games (4 starts) in Rookie ball for the Angels last year and he was 0-2 with a 4.50 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP. The Angels will be very careful with Bedrosian in his rehab as he projects to be a top of the rotation type of starter down the road.

Jeff Baisley is off to a torrid start in the minors for the Los Angeles Angels

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by chinmusic on Friday 13 May 2011 at 9:59 am

28-year old righty swinging 3B Jeff Baisley is off to a great start in the minors for the Angels so far this year. He has played in 33 games so far this year in AAA-ball and he is 50 for 129 (.388 avg, 1.117 OPS) with 33 runs scored, 9 homers, 30 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Baisley has now played in 604 games in his first 7 years in the minors and he is 644 for 2,269 (.284 avg, .820 OPS) with 349 runs scored, 77 homers, 378 RBIs and 20 stolen bases. Baisley did get 14 games of experience in the majors back in 2008 with the A’s when he played in 14 games and was 11 for 43 (.256 avg, .598 OPS) with 1 run scored and 5 RBIs. He is blocked at the majors by quite a few Angels like Alberto Callaspo and Maicer Izturis, but if Baisley keeps hitting like he is right now the Angels will have to call him up at some point.
