Albert Pujols says knee injury will be fully healed by Opening Day

Albert Pujols is looking to prove he can still be a productive player after just celebrating his 39th birthday, and the slugger says the knee injury that ended his 2018 season will not stand in the way. On Sunday, Pujols met with reporters and said he expects his knee to be fully recovered in time for Opening Day. Pujols underwent arthroscopic surgery in late August, and was ruled out for the remainder of the season with the Angels not in playoff contention. He batted .245 with 19 home runs,...

Catchers and Pitchers - Day 3 and Day 4 Camp Pictures, 2019

Feb 15-16, 2019

Here’ some more pictures from Camp in Tempe. Catchers and Pitchers on Friday. And here’s more from Saturday - Prospects, Pitchers and Catchers. There is a cameo of Ippei and his buddy Shohei, one of the best buddy duos for the Angels since Bo & Dean, Fregosi & Knopp, or Ryan & Tanana.

The key buddy duo in 2019 though in Anaheim is Heaney & Skaggs. If we’re bound for glory, it’s those two that will lead us there. They are solid enough, more than capable and so while...

The Future Game - Photos from the Minor League Batting Cages in Tempe 2-15-19

The sun finally came out for the first time in Tempe for Angels Spring Training today on Day 3 of the workouts. And Shohei Ohtani also came down to the practice fields too, albeit just for a quick cameo appearance. But big league camp can wait! The future seems more exciting these days while waiting for Mike Trout so the first set of photos is of some kid-hitters getting ready for Big League Camp.

Starting off, we have some of the Angels top prospects catching some batting practice in the...

WeekEnd HaloLinks: Breaking Bad

When 2019 looks just like 2018 looks just like 2017 looks just like 2016...

New star pitching prospect Matt Harvey was all over the Internet yesterday, and not just because he is butt-hurt....For that, Matt himself says that he will be fine.

Matt Harvey’s butt-hurt is merely par for the LAA course. We already knew that Keynan Middleton and J.C. Ramirez are both “possibles” for 2019. And we knew that Shohei Ohtani’s pitching arm was lost to 2019. What we learned this week was that...

Angels P Matt Harvey is already hurt

Matt Harvey’s Los Angeles Angels career is off to a stellar start. Pitchers and catchers just reported to spring training this week, and Harvey already hurt himself. He will be out a week and a half after straining his glute on Wednesday, according to the OC Register’s Jeff Fletcher. Harvey did say the injury is not bad and he would play through it if it were the season, but he’s taking time off to recover since it’s not. Harvey signed a one-year deal with the Angels over the...

Could the Los Angeles Angels be American League Sleepers?

The Los Angeles Angels are coming off a fourth consecutive playoff-deprived and third consecutive losing season. But with some new faces and an intriguing roster in place, could they make a run at the American League playoffs this season? One year ago, Mike Trout was, for once, not the most sought-after Angels interview; it was Shohei Ohtani. Ohtani, a two-way player, agreed to a deal with the Angels after attracting the interest of Major League Baseball in Japan. His arrival, as well as a...

What’s $300 million?

To paraphrase a Mr. Dirksen myth: “A million here, a million there, and pretty soon you’re talking real money.”

Ok, while chatting this week in the comments I reminded myself of a study I had done years ago that looked into just how well a person’s family might do across the generations if they had a $300 million kick start. I didn’t hang onto that model, so I got curious all over again and built a new one.

The inspiration is the current conversation about Free Agent contracts,...

Jared Wash could be next Shohei Ohtani, right??

We’ve talked about Jared Walsh a bit on this site lately. He had been playing 1B and OF but made 8 pitching appearances last season across 3 levels.

Thanks to Spring Training and Jeff Fletcher and Fabian Ardaya, here are some videos of him throwing. He might not be quite at the same level as Ohtani but it’s pretty exciting to see the Angels developing another 2-way player. And I’m sure there will be more.

Jared Walsh is in camp as a two-way player. Here he is pitching. He had been...

Mike Trout continues with unique spin on jersey retirement

Mike Trout is one of the greatest baseball players to ever come out of the state of New Jersey, and you might assume his high school has retired his number now that he has been terrorizing MLB pitchers for the past seven years. However, that is not the way the star outfielder wants it. Rather than retiring his No. 1 jersey, Millville High School’s coaching staff has been awarding the jersey to one deserving senior each year. The tradition continued on Thursday night with Trout paying a...

Early look at top MLB ROY candidates

As we look at the rookie class of 2019, we have to wonder which guys are ready make the same impact in MLB that the likes of Aaron Judge, Cody Bellinger, Ronald Acuna Jr., Shohei Ohtani and Juan Soto made in 2017 and 2018. There is a wealth of candidates this season. Two sons of former MLB stars are poised to make their marks in 2019. The Chicago White Sox will miss the big arm of Michael Kopech this year. But at least two other prized prospects are ready to go on the South Side. The...
