Which Angels prospect(s) have a breakout 2019 campaign?

Last year we had quite a few actually in Taylor Ward, Luis Rengifo, Patrick Sandoval, Jose Suarez, D’Shawn Knowles, Jack Kruger, Ty Buttrey and Jared Walsh. 

Heck you can argue that Thaiss, Adell and Canning exceeded our expectations as well.  

My picks for 2019 are: Aaron Hernandez, Kyle Bradish and Kevin Maitan.

I wouldn't hang your hat on that....

I personally would be much more excited to see some of the names at the start of this list takes steps to becoming major leaguers than seeing the lower guys move up from rookie ball or A ball.  
We need those guys to start pressing the big team and force some movement by next year if 21 is the goal

Brandon Marsh will experience a huge boost in the power and OBP department, and firmly entrench himself in the middle of the Top 100. 

Jahmai Jones will experience a huge boost both in power, defense and his general offensive game, and will climb the Top 100. 

Aaron Hernandez puts up big numbers in A, A+ and AA and will be fringe top 100. 

Matt Thaiss' power numbers in AAA make him very interesting moving forward. 

Kevin Maitan settles down a little bit in A Ball in 2019, but in 2020, he'll erupt.  

D'Shawn Knowles is going to have a big season and break into the Top 100.

Yes, Yes, Maybe, NO, Maybe, Yes.

And we are all forgetting Roberto Baldoquin's imminent breakout.

So will we have 7 or 10 in the top 100?  We currently have 5 and only one is really going to be in the majors this year (Canning).

and one extra for AJ because I've picked him the last three years - Nonie Williams.  

Following the minors daily last season, I will say that Nonie quietly seemed to show some life at the end. 
Over his last 25 games, he slashed .224/.297/.429/.726 finally finding some power with 15 XBH. 
His last 10 games of the season saw him post .257/.364/.600/.964, which is honestly the best 10-game stretch he's ever had by a wide margin.

Not a remarkable line in any way, but a marked improvement over the .202/.265/.256/.521 line his career was sitting on July 2nd this year.

My hope is that halfway through last season, he started seeing players he once played with make real strides at advanced levels...and he saw kids brought in after him start passing him up in rookie ball, and we're seeing at the very least a young player realize it's now or never. The tools are there, and he'll only be age 21 season next year.
