Angels Week 18 Rankings - Position Players

The good, the bad, and the meh - Trout drops bombs

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 offense is still scoring runs at a better pace and were 5th in the AL last week with 37, and they were 4th in the league in AVG thanks to Calhoun, Trout, Revere, Cron, and Pennington who all hit over .300 on the week. Despite the fact that Andrelton Simmons continues to amaze, Mike Trout regains the top spot this week thanks to 3 home runs and a .571 OBP.

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.

Cameron Maybin, rehab assignment


7/31 Nick Franklin outrighted to Minors
8/1 Ramon Flores purchased from Minors
8/4 Ramon Flores designated for assignment
