2021 Los Angeles Angels Top 15 Prospects

With the Angels having committed over $108 million to four players (Trout, Pujols, Rendon, and Upton), they must look to younger players to fill out their roster. Jo Adell is one of them and despite a less than stellar Major League debut, I still believe he has star potential.  Jared Walsh looked good and might be able to help. 

In the minors, I really like Brandon Marsh.  Like Adell, he has star potential and is just about ready to make his Major League debut.  The problem will be playing time as unless there is an injury, I don’t see room for him.  Jahmai Jones is also nearly ready and while not as tooled up as Marsh he still has the upside of a full-time regular.  I still worry about his hit tool but there is some speed and a little pop in the toolbox.

From a pitching standpoint, there are good arms in the system, but I don’t see any pitchers that have front-line starter potential.  Reid Detmers, their first-round draft pick last June is polished and could see time in Los Angeles next season.

  1. Brandon Marsh (OF)
  2. Reid Detmers (LHP)
  3. Jordyn Adams (OF)
  4. Chris Rodriguez (RHP)
  5. Kyren Paris (SS)
  6. Jeremiah Jackson (SS/2B)
  7. Jahmai Jones (2B)
  8. D’Shawn Knowles (OF)
  9. Arol Vera (SS)
  10. Jose Soriano (RHP)
