There isn’t a lot of excitement surrounding former Angels players this year, as no former Angels players are expected to make it in. There are five former Angels on the ballot, including Torii Hunter, Bobby Abreu, Dan Haren, LaTroy Hawkins and Shane Victorino.
With the exception of Abreu, the other four players are making their first appearance on the ballot.
Hunter was the longest tenured Angel on this list, as he spent 713 career games in a Halos uniform. He played outfield for LA from 2008-2012. During his tenure, he hit 105 homers while driving in 432 runs. He also had 768 hits and scored 396 runs. In addition to his great bat, Hunter also won two Gold Glove Awards.
Abreu had the second longest tenure, appearing in 456 games from 2009-2012. His best season came in his first season in LA, when he finished 12th in MVP voting.
Haren spent his 13 career seasons playing for eight teams, and the Angels are tied with Oakland and Arizona for being his longest tenured team. He was with the club from 2010-2012. In 2011, Haren actually finished seventh in Cy Young voting.
Hawkins spent 21 years in the league, and one of them was a brief stint in Anaheim. In 2012, during his age-39 season, Hawkins pitched 48 games for the Angels.
Finally, there’s Victorino, who spent his final 38 games in the league with the Angels in 2015.
