Angels Week 21 Rankings - Position Players

The good, the bad, and the meh - Trout is back!

MLB: Houston Astros at Los Angeles Angels 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.


It’s hard to win games when you don’t score runs, and the Angels only managed to plate 12 runners in 5 games. In the end they were outscored 30 to 12 by the D-Backs and Astros and had a .198 team batting average. That run output was LAST in all of baseball - behind even the Marlins, Orioles, Rangers, Tigers, and Padres.

Not a single position player rose in the ranks last week. They all dropped or stayed even. Yeah, it was that kind of week. We can only go up from there, right?

Not on this list:

Zack Cozart, 60 day DL
Chris Young, 10 day DL
Michael Hermosillo, Minor league DL
Nolan Fontana, Minor league DL
Justin Upton, 10 day DL


Aug 21 Justin Upton placed on 10 day DL
Aug 21 Jabari Blash called up from Minors
Aug 24 Mike Trout removed from 10 day DL
Aug 24 Jabari Blash sent to Minors
