MLB: Los Angeles Angels-Media Day
One of our international players!
Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse, a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send 30 polls to plugged in fans from each team. Angels fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

Although the MLB Draft is coming up, an important item to remember is that a team’s prospects don’t all come from the draft. Some are currently signed as international players.

Nearly three-quarters of respondents think all players should be subject to the same rules. It makes sense, but it would be a severe overhaul of the current system. Some questions to be considered include when (at what age) international players would be eligible for the draft.

Are you confident in the direction of the Angels?

61% Yes (down from 79% last week)

39% No

Do you approve of the job manager Brad Ausmus has done?

54% Yes (down from 69% last week)

46% No
