Los Angeles Angels Farm System

The Angels came into the draft with their first first-round pick since 2011 and selected lefty Sean Newcomb 15th overall. With an 97+ fastball, improving slider and changeup he might move very fast. During the offseason the Angels added fellow left-hander Andrew Heaney for Howie Kendrick. Heaney is one of the top left handed prospects in the minors. Arguably one of the smartest pitching prospects in baseball Heaney’s control, composure, wipe-out slider and 90-95 MPH fastball makes him one of the top pitching prospects in the game.

Both Heaney and Newcomb rank on our Top 10 Left Handed Pitching LIST The guy who was traded twice in the same day in December of 2014 ended up being a member of the Los Angeles Angels in the deal that sent Howie Kendrick to the Dodgers. Heaney made his MLB debut last season with the Marlins just two years after being drafted.
Since C.J. Cron made his ascend to the big leagues in 2014, the Angels do not have a solid power prospect in their system. Taylor Lindsey opened the year as the Angels top prospect and fell like a anvil on Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner cartoon. He hit .247 on the year with a strike-out ratio almost 1-to-1.

The Angels acquired Kyle Kubitza from the Braves for LHP Ricardo Sanchez. Kubitza ranked in the Double-A Southern League Top 10 in OBP (1st), BB (T1st ), 3B (2nd), R (4th), H (7th), 2B (8th), SB (8th) & BA (9th) and should be penciled in as their starting thirdbaseman this year.
