Angels Week 10 Rankings - Position Players

New, comments

The good, the bad, and the meh - Offense is overrated

MLB: Texas Rangers at Los Angeles Angels Jayne Kamin-Oncea-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.

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

26 runs last week is down from 29 the week before. Most of the lineup had pretty bad weeks yet the Angels were 16th in overall batting average and 18th in runs scored. If not for a few people at the top of this list, those numbers would be A LOT worse. Kinsler and Valbuena HAD to make huge jumps because most of the rest of the roster deserved to move done. Yea, it was one of those weeks.

Outside of the top 4 guys on this list, the rest of the team hit a miserable .149. The top 4 guys on this list hit 64% of the home runs last week and drove in 62% of the runs over the other 11 guys on the big league roster.

Rene Rivera, 10 day DL
