Angels Week 23 Rankings - Position Players

The good, the bad, and the meh - Troutani

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Texas Rangers Jerome Miron-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

Last week the Angels offense scored 32 runs over 6 games which was the 5th most among teams who plays 6 games. On the base paths, the Angels were also among the top last week - tied for second with 7 bags swiped. The Angels were 5th in average and on base, and 6th in position player WAR (4th if you don’t count the teams that played 7 games).

Both the offense AND pitching had great weeks, with the offense being lead by Mike Trout, Shohei Ohtani, David Fletcher, Andrelton Simmons, and Jose Miguel Fernandez.

Not on this list:

Zack Cozart, 60 day DL
Chris Young, 10 day DL
Albert Pujols, 60 day DL (or is it 80 day DL? number are confusing with him)

Changes:

Sep 3 Albert Pujols transferred to 60 day DL
Sep 4 Nolan Fontana released
Sep 4 Michael Hermosillo called up from Minors
Sep 4 Joe Hudson purchased from Minors
Sep 4 Jabari Blash called up from Minors (why?)
Sep 7 Nolan Fontana cleared waivers and became a free agent
