Angels winter and fall league updates

New, 17 comments

20 players from the Angels org are currently playing ball in Arizona and the Caribbean

Some of them have big league playing time. Some are waiting for their big break. The MLB season may be over for all except 2 teams, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t some baseball being played.

Arizona Fall League (AFL)

Roberto Baldoquin (IF) - It seemed like Baldoquin may have been figuring it out at bit during the regular season but so far in the AFL he’s hitting 0.095 with a .174 OBP in 21 ABs.

Jahmai Jones (2B) - Jones is looking good in the fall league and his hitting .300 with a .432 OBP. His patience at the plate is showing. He’s struck out 9 times to 6 walks over his 8 games and has also stolen 2 bases in 4 attempts.

David MacKinnon (1B) - He had a solid minor league season with a combined .417 OBP across A and high A ball. He has just a single hit in his 17 fall at bats so far and has struck out 8 times (nearly a 50% rate) with 7 walks.

Jesus Castillo (RHP) - Castillo has had a pair of 3 innings starts, the first of which went pretty well and the later saw him getting knocked around pretty bad. Overall he has given up 10 hits and 5 runs in 6 innings of work. 7 of those hits and all of the runs came in his last start.

Ryan Clark (RHP) - He was lights out in AA but lit up like a Christmas tree in AAA this year. So far int he AFL he has allowed just 1 hit and 3 walks over 4 innings. He has walked 1 and struck out one in each of his 3 appearances.

Brett Hanewich (RHP) - Hanewich has looked good this fall so far with zero runs allowed over his 6 innings. He has also struck out 10 and allowed 4 hits and 3 walks. Despite his zero runs allowed, he has a record of 2-2 which shows you how messed up win and loss records can be.

Daniel Procopio (RHP) - He struggled for Mobile this year but in the AFL so far has allowed only 2 runs over 7 innings and 4 appearances.

Liga de Beisbol Dominicano (LIDOM)

Michael Hermosillo (OF) - We certainly saw a bit of Hermosillo on the big league team this year where he hit only .211. Through 10 ABs he has 2 hits and 3 Ks.

Mayky Perez (RHP) - Perez was really good for Burlington in season but hasn’t thrown much in this league. He made one appearance and gave up 2 hits and walk - not even recording a single out before being pulled.

Ivan Pineryro (RHP) - Just 1.1 innings so far and he allowed 1 unearned run, 2 hits, and struck out 1.

Jeremy Rhoades (RHP) - Rhoades had a sharp regular season and is putting up more of the same numbers here. He has made 4 appearances and allowed zero runs or walks over 4.1 innings.

Liga Venezuela Beisbol Profesional (LVBP)

Zach Houchins (3B) - Houchins spent the regular season at the AA and AAA levels putting up some pretty decent numbers. He has a .235 AVG in 34 ABs this winter and has struck out 12 times with 3 walks.

Jose Rojas (3B) - Rojas is tearing up the LVBP with a .423 AVG and .500 OBP through 8 games. He also has 3 doubles, 2 triples, and a home runs. He’s walked (4) more times than he has struck out (2). He leads the LVBP in OPS.

Greyfer Eregua (RHP) - Released by the Cubs early last year, he’s found a home in the Angels system. He only threw 6 innings in the regular season, presumably due to injury. Though 4 games and 3.1 innings in the LVBP he hasn’t given up a run or walk and has struck out 3 and allowed 2 hits.

Osmer Morales (RHP) - Morales had a rough season for Salt Lake and is trying to put that behind him. Unfortunately, he’s having a rough fall so far with 4 runs allowed in 7 innings. In those 2 starts, he’s given up 7 hits and 3 walks.

Akeel Morris (RHP) - Morris has allowed only 1 ER, and 3 hits over his 4.1 innings. He hasn’t notched a single strikeout in his 3 appearances so far.

Eduardo Paredes (RHP) - Paredes wasn’t fooling anyone in the regular season and isn’t fooling anyone now. He has allowed 5 hits and a walk over 2.1 innings in 3 games.

Dylan Unsworth (RHP) - In two starts he’s given up 3 runs and 10 hits over 11 innings. He’s also struck out 9 and walked none.

Liga Mexicana del Pacifico (LMP)

Sherman Johnson (2B) - Through 8 games, Johnson has a .412 AVG and .500 OBP. He also has 4 doubles and 3 stolen bases.

Eric Young Jr. (OF) - EYJ is 12 for 40 with a .391 OBP and 3 stolen bases in 4 attempts. Pretty sure he’s one of the oldest guys in the LMP.
