Angels Week 22 Rankings - Position Players

New, comments

The good, the bad, and the meh - Runs, runs, runs

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Texas Rangers Jim Cowsert-USA TODAY Sports

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.

Summary

Justin Upton joined the team and sure didn’t disappoint (at the plate at least). Brandon Phillips was pretty mediocre in his Angels debut but it’s still early. Offense was on point, scoring 43 runs over 6 games.

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:

Changes:

8/29 Eric Young purchased from Minors
8/31 Brandon Phillips traded from Braves
8/31 Justin Upton traded from Tigers
8/31 Cameron Maybin traded to Astros
9/1 Carlos Perez called up from Minors
9/1 Yunel Escobar recalled from Minors, Rehab assignment
9/1 Nolan Fontana called up up from Minors
