Interview Conducted by David Saltzer, AngelsWin.com Senior Writer

There’s no doubt that the Angels organization is resurgent. As we approach the 2018 draft, the Angels have rebounded from their nadir two years ago, and are on a path to a much higher organizational ranking.

One of the many emerging players in the Angels organization is Brandon Marsh, a left-handed outfielder with the Inland Empire 66ers. Drafted in the 2nd round of the 2017 draft, Marsh has the tools that make scouts drool and organizations covet. He can hit for average and power, has plenty of speed, and plays all of the outfield positions.

This season, Brandon has been on an accelerated pace. After getting some time with the Major League club in Spring Training, he blew through his initial assignment with the Burlington Bees, posting a .295/.390/.470 line in 34 games, he’s now starting to heat up with the High-A Inland Empire 66ers. There, he’s paired with two other top Angels prospects, Jo Adell and Jahmai Jones.

Below are three at-bats by Brandon Marsh in the May 27th game. Unfortunately, it was a tough game for the 66ers, as they were no-hit for 8 and 2/3rds innings. But, as noted, Marsh has been heating up, and has posted a 4 for 5 performance on June 3rd.

Seeing Jones, Adell, and Marsh all in the lineup should have any Angels fan excited. And, imagining a future outfield with Marsh, Trout, and Adell is something that should have Angels fans very excited. Making the drive out to San Bernadino to see and meet these players is something that So. Cal. fans should definitely do.

Brandon Marsh: Lumbersexual?

Seriously though, I love that Adell-Trout-Marsh outfield, but things get tricky with the equally talented Deveaux and Adams a year or two behind. But I don't see Marsh or Adell being traded anytime soon. Both are not yet at "peak prospect value" - they need to at least dominate at A+ ball, if not AA. They're both at that crucial stage developmentally where they need to jump from relying on pure athleticism to refined skills. We've seen some of that from both, but until they make that jump--which roughly equates with either A+ mastery or AA competency--they don't have the fullest prospect value.

Should be a lot of fun watching all of this talent develop.
