2017 RECAP

Record: 26 - 26

Last Season’s Fantasy Highlights

Mike Trout being Mike Trout highlighted 2015 for the Angels. How can one argue with 36 homers, 115 runs and 111 runs batted in? Albert Pujols supported Trout and showed he is far from done by hitting 28 home runs and adding 105 RBIs. On the pitching side, Garrett Richards came out of practically nowhere and was great: 96.3 MPH average FB velocity; 2.61 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 8.75 K/9. Matt Shoemaker on the hand came from even greater obscurity to win 16 games with very pretty ratios )3.04 ERA and 1.07).

What Has Changed?

Howie Kendrick has moved to Chavez Ravine and will man 2B for the Dodgers. Josh Rutledge is now in town and will try to prove he can hit outside of Colorado. On the pitching side, Andrew Heaney came over in the Kendrick trade and will be asked to grow up on the job.

What to Expect:

On offense, the Angels will look a lot like the 2014 version. Trout and Pujols will hit, Josh Hamilton will battle injuries, Kole Calhoun will be good but not as good as the hype and David Freese will be alright but not nearly as good as his World Series MVP days. On the pitching side, Huston Street will make all the starters better by providing solid relief to a team that was atrocious in the late innings in 2014.

This Year’s Surprise:

C.J. Cron will get his at-bats and way outproduce his draft day cost. In 2014, Cron hit 11 home runs and drove in 37 in just 242 at-bats. Hamilton will miss time and Matt Joyce is just not good enough to hold Cron off. 20+ homers for minimal cost is yours for the taking.
