OC Register Top 13 Angels Prospects

The Orange County Register published tonight its top 13 Angels prospects. (Why 13?! I’ve no idea.) It’s largely an amalgam of rankings by professional and fan sites, with more weight given to input from Baseball America and FutureAngels.com.

The Register list:

  1. Jordan Walden RHP
  2. Nick Adenhart RHP
  3. Hank Conger C
  4. Trevor Reckling LHP
  5. Peter Bourjos OF
  6. Will Smith LHP
  7. Mark Trumbo 1B
  8. Kevin Jepsen RHP
  9. Sean O’Sullivan RHP
  10. Anthony Ortega RHP
  11. Mason Tobin RHP
  12. Luis Jimenez 3B
  13. Ryan Chaffee RHP

Click Here to read the article. The author, Sam Miller, is a relatively new addition to the Register sports pages. His main assignment is as a beat writer covering south Orange County news, but his love of baseball led him to volunteer for part-time sports writing. Sam has a sabermetric bent but he’s open to learning more about the game beyond the calculator. And he does a good job challenging the preconceptions of the more established writers in their Angels Blog.
