The good, the bad, and the meh - Pre season rankings

MLB: Spring Training-Los Angeles Angels at Los Angeles Dodgers Joe Camporeale-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.

Also, week 0 rankings are based about 50% off spring training and the other 50% off last year and expectations for this year. It’s a very scientific formula. Trust me.

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.

Summary

The Angels offense is much improved from 2017, though the power wasn’t really there this spring with only 33 home runs (21st in MLB). The offense was also 19th in AVG and 21st in runs scored. What’s with the low numbers? Well.. spring. The Angels kept regulars out of the lineup longer than perhaps any other team at the beginning of ST. They also got good long looks at some of the up and coming minor leaguers. That combination will skew things quite a bit. I’m not too concerned about their spring numbers
