Perhaps It’s Time for a Different Approach in Left Field

Ji-Man Choi went 4-for-4 in his game with the Salt Lake Bees yesterday, and the Korean is now hitting .343 in 48 games for the Triple-A club, and it makes me wonder what he could have done with the Angels if he had been given regular playing time. This year, there have been nine players who have played in left field for the Angels, and none of them have gotten any regular playing...

Angels Notes: Kaleb Cowart showing signs of development, more confidence at the plate

TORONTO – Despite the fact that Kaleb Cowart has been groomed as something of a super utility player lately in the minors, Mike Scioscia isn’t ruling out that he still might have a future at one spot. “I think his upside is to play every...

Some possible September call-ups for the Angels that we can get (mildly) excited about

Hey, can you believe it’s almost September? We can finally start to see the finish line, a welcomed end to a trying season of Halos baseball, but with September comes expanded rosters, and with expanded rosters comes the opportunity for teams to give some vets a break and take a good on-field look at a handful of their top prospects. Therein lies the rub with assessing the Angels’...

Pujols passes McGwire for 10th All-Time

A Very Mike Trout Home Run

Last night, Mike Trout went 3-for-6 with a double, a homer, two runs, and an RBI. The Angels won, 8-2, over the Blue Jays, but let’s get back to that home run. Here’s what Mike Trout’s body looked like just moments before making contact with a pitch that went over the left field fence: We all know what a typical home run swing looks like, and it sure doesn’t look like that...

Jahmai Jones Interviews with AngelsWin.com

To say that the production that the Angels have received out of leftfield this season has been a disappointment is a bit of an understatement. It's been a disappointment to fans for many years now. But, all that may be on the cusp of changing. One of the top Angels prospects is Jahmai Jones (pronounced Jahm-eye Jones). Drafted in the 2nd round of the 2015 draft, Jahmai is...

Matt Shoemaker + actual run support = Angels destroy Blue Jays 8-2. Who would have thought?

The Angels had Matt Shoemaker on the mound tonight, and if you’ve got your brain set to Halos Logic, then you probably came to the quick conclusion that Shoemaker would probably pitch well, but the Angels would fail to give him runs and they’d ultimately lose. Luckily, every once in awhile, the team decides to do away with the Shoemaker run shunning, and they instead back up...

Orem Owlz Manager Dave Stapleton Interviews with AngelsWin.com

With the struggles with the Major League club this season, it’s not surprising to see fans turn their attention to the Minor Leagues to see what hope there is for the future of the organization. While most fans know that the Angels have one of the worst—if not the absolute worst—farm system in baseball, what most fans don’t know is that the last two drafts have brought...

Jered Weaver not sure he’ll play next season

Once one of the most dominating pitchers in the American League, Los Angeles Angels veteran Jered Weaver has fallen on hard times recently.

Let’s Not Forget About Andrelton Simmons

There was a time, not very long ago, when Andrelton Simmons mesmerized us on a regular basis. You couldn’t go more than a week without some preposterous defensive play flooding into your Twitter timelines attached to phrases like “whoa,” “wut,” and “OMG.” Yet over the last year or so, that interest in Simmons’ plays has died down. One reason might be MLB’s stringent...
