Angels Week 20 Rankings - Position Players

The good, the bad, and the meh - Upton and Fletch rising

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at San Diego Padres Jake Roth-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.


39 runs is a great week for the offense and included 9 home runs by 8 different Angels. Unfortunately all those runs turned into only 4 wins in 7 games. Only one regular player (Simmons) hit under .260 over the past week.

Not on this list:

Rene Rivera, 60 day DL
Zack Cozart, 60 day DL
Chris Young, 10 day DL
Michael Hermosillo, Minor league DL
Nolan Fontana, Minor league DL
Mike Trout, 10 day DL


Aug 14th Taylor Ward purchased from Minors
Aug 14th Jose Miguel Fernandez
Aug 14th Chris Young transferred to 60 day DL
Aug 15th Rene Rivera recalled from Minors, rehab assignment
Aug 15th Jose Briceno sent to Minors
