A mock draft roundup with some players the Angels could take at No. 9
For our final Angels review of 2020, we saved the best for last: Mike Trout.
He appeared in only six games with the Angels in 2020
He was sent to the Reds this offseason
It was a rough year for the RHP
Anthony Bemboom led Angels catchers in throwing out runners in 2020, and led the team’s pitchers in ERA, too.
A look back at the 2020 season for Jose Briceño, the Angels catcher who spent a week of the season in the majors and left in free agency after the season.
After a rough first half, he turned into the Angels’ top hitter
He had a pretty decent season in 2020
The Angels tried to add positional versatility to Matt Thasiss’ profile in 2020 by playing him at second base and in left field, though only for a game at each position.
Shohei Ohtani got hurt after two short and ineffective starts on the mound in 2020, and he was also bad at the plate. It was a terrible year for the Angels’ two-way player.
Andrelton Simmons had his 2020 season cut short by an ankle injury, and opted out of playing during the final week when the Angels were still technically) alive for a postseason berth.
A look at the 2020 season for left-handed pitcher José Quijada, who spent two weeks in the majors with the Angels this year.
He was on the Opening Day roster... at least that’s one positive
Patrick Sandoval was homer prone for the Angels in 2020, but the second-year left-hander found success with his slider.
A near trade in February, then a rough season in 2020 for Angels switch-hitter Luis Rengifo.
Griffin Canning had a solid second season in the middle of the Angels’ starting rotation.
A look back at this season for Jacob Barnes, who was a non-roster invitee in spring training and made the Angels bullpen.
He’s rated as LAA’s No. 7 overall prospect
It was a tale of two halves for the veteran
The catcher was great in his limited action of work
It was a down year for the reliever
A rough year for the future Hall of Famer
Matt Andriese pitched in multiple roles for the Angels in 2020.
Hoby Milner was a non-roster invitee who made the Angels’ Opening Day roster in 2020, but the left-hander struggled with an 8.10 ERA.
The Angels acquired utility man Franklin Barreto at the trade deadline, but his time on the active roster was brief, suffering a season-ending shoulder injury within a week with his new team.
The Angels traded four minor league pitchers to get Dylan Bundy last winter, which proved to be their best move, gaining a top-of-the-rotation arm for a team starved for pitching.
Kyle Keller spent all of six days on the active roster in three separate major league stints with the Angels in 2020.
Jose Suarez took his lumps in two major league starts for the Angels in 2020, allowing 10 runs while recording seven outs for a 38.57 ERA.
Jason Castro gave the Angels power from the catching position in 2020, before getting traded away at the end of August.
An awful 2020 for the closer
He was one of the best rookies in the American League
