This is a very interesting season for the Angels farm. Despite having what is considered a poor system, we have a collection on talented players in both AA and AAA (Cron, Lindsey, Green, Morin, Cowart, Yarbrough, Stamets, Borenstein, Bedrock, Alvarez, Roth and Sappington).

What happens at the major league level is what is most important, but I don't remember a season in which the fate of this organization's future was more tied to what happened in AA and AAA. Even when we had talented teams and players in AA and AAA in the past, their success didn't necessarily dictate a path in team building.

This does speak to the Angels lack of depth in A+ and A ball though.

Borenstein had a good game yesterday, he's had a rough start but has a lot of on his plate given what happened this offseason.   Also, it's nice to see Clevinger throwing well again after having been lost to injury.. he had some upside before and looks to be 100% back.   Also, former independent ball pitcher Drew Rucinski has pitched pretty well for Arkansas...  No idea what the story is on him, was primarily a RP when in organized ball previously, but he's being used as a starter.   He may be a candidate for peanut duty at some point

The biggest thing I'll be looking at with Borenstein is his defensive performance and power. The power was better than expected in the Cal League and we'll find out if it was a mirage. The defense and base running were worse however. He looked just fine in Spring though.

I was disappointed to see Clevinger back in A ball. Haven't seen him post surgery yet but I vividly remember him pre surgery. Long frame, Four pitches that are MLB average or better. Like a lesser version on Richards.

I e seen Rucinski. Low 90's fastball, relies a lot on two seamer right around 90, workable curve and change but has a relievers delivery still.

Once again, I'm assuming Green's defense is still an issue? I would think he'd make a great utility bat right now, basically doing what Mcdonald does, but utility guys usually play solid defense. 

 

Both Long and Green aren't really prospects anymore I guess.

So how about this for next year's starting lineup:

 

LF Calhoun

CF Trout

1B Pujols

RF Hamilton

DH Cron

C Conger

2B Lindsey

3B Cowart

SS Aybar

 

3 rookies starting opening day? That would never happen in a Scioscia lineup.

 

Seems like it would be a good budget controlled roster though. The A's seem to do this every year.

I think Cron could be a useful DH, but look at the guys the Angels could have picked that came after Cron:

 

Sonny Gray, Kolten Wong, Matt Barnes, Alex Meyer, Blake Swihart, and Robert Stephenson

 

Imagine the rotation if Gray was picked, Weaver, Wilson, Gray, Richards, and Skaggs with Santiago as a swingman

Let them rot in the minors so long as guys like Josh Wall get a priority spot on the roster.

 

Bringing those guys to the roster would make the team win more games, so don't count on seeing any of them any time soon.
