Cow Tipping: June 2nd Angels Minor League Report - Allday shines

Allday shines, Scribner falters, and lots of moves

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Los Angeles Angels Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports
Affiliate Teams (from AAA to Rookie):

Orem Owls, DSL and ARZ Angels won’t start playing until June.

Note: I won't be showing the "duds" for the rookie leagues unless they are top prospects or top draft picks. A lot of the guys in the rookie leagues are young and adjusting to pro ball. Many of them never make it past rookie ball, and even the truly gifted ones can have bad weeks, months, etc.
