The sun finally came out for the first time in Tempe for Angels Spring Training today on Day 3 of the workouts. And Shohei Ohtani also came down to the practice fields too, albeit just for a quick cameo appearance. But big league camp can wait! The future seems more exciting these days while waiting for Mike Trout so the first set of photos is of some kid-hitters getting ready for Big League Camp.
Starting off, we have some of the Angels top prospects catching some batting practice in the minor league complex, and by the groupings, these fellas are the ones heading up to the main field as NRIs. Really awesome to see Jam Jones, Matt Thaiss, Brendan Marsh, Luis Regifo, Brennon Lund, and Jo Adell taking some whacks honing their swing to impress the top brass next week. There’s a few others I can’t identify so chime in if you recognize these guys. Oh yes, David Fletcher joined them also.
I’ll be back later with pictures of the main camp shortly. But in the mean time, enjoy the kids.
