Angels Week 19 Rankings - Position Players

The good, the bad, and the meh - Trout, Simmons, and Cron led the way

I’ll cover the entire 40 man roster and will split it between position players and pitchers (generally 20 or so guys on each list). Each week the list will change based on the past week’s performance - but also taking into account their performance year to date.


The Angels scored the 3rd most runs in the AL last week with 33. Cron, Trout, Simmons, Calhoun, and Maldanado all had great weeks and helped pick up the slack for Cowart, Maybin, Valbuena, and Pujols who had a bit of a rougher time. The Angels also had the fewest strikeouts of any team in the AL.

These rankings were compiled with the help of MLB stats, FanGraphs, misc. data, personal opinion, scribblings on Cam Bedrosian’s Five Guys wrappers, and some fairy dust I found hidden in Matt Shoemaker’s beard.

Not on this list:


8/7 Ramon Flores outrighted to Minors
8/7 Cameron Maybin recalled from Minors, rehab assignment
8/7 Shane Robinson designated for assignment
8/9 Cesar Puello purchased from Minors
8/10 Jefry Marte called up from Minors
8/12 Cesar Puello designated for assignment
