9. Los Angeles Angels

Los Angeles spent a lot of money to bolster its lineup this offseason. More reinforcements loom at every level, none more imminent than No. 6 overall prospect Jo Adell. His month at Triple-A to close 2019 wasn't flawless, but his 43 games at Double-A were a reminder of why the 20-year-old was the 10th pick in 2017 and has zoomed through the Minors. Adell hit .308/.390/.533 with a 10.4 percent walk rate, the best mark for the strikeout-prone outfielder at any level. Not far behind is Brandon Marsh (No. 79), whose .909 OPS ranked fifth in the Arizona Fall League after a strong campaign with Double-A Mobile. Marsh fits the mold of the elite athlete the Angels have sought from prospects in recent years. So, too, do outfielders D'Shawn Knowles and Jordyn Adams, Los Angeles' 2018 first-round pick. Drafted in the next round, middle infielder Jeremiah Jackson broke through in 2019 with a Pioneer League record-tying 23 home runs. Led by Adell, these prospects have high ceilings, pushing this batch of Halos into the top 10.

Baseball America has us at 16 for their org rankings.  Somehow the Mariners are 5th. 

the top of their system is very good.  just goes to show what's most important in these types of rankings.  Halos have more depth and upside in the lower level.  In a year or two this system will be top 10.

Just a reminder that across the upper Minors (AAA/AA), the Angels had three hitters in the Top 30 of all Qualified prospects/players:

Jared Walsh at #4, Taylor Ward at #19, and Brandon Marsh at #30, all sorted by wRC+ which is park-adjusted (and League-adjusted).

Point being is that I am high on all three of these guys and think they all have the potential to possibly impact our 2020 season, probably in the order listed.

Even if just one of them makes an impact this year it will be gravy for our season. Can you imagine Walsh (or even Ward) stepping into the 1B role, for a majority of playing time, hitting .800+ OPS? Or providing .350+ OBP? Would be a great boost to the squad even if it is for a small part of the season.

Impact play from Walsh, Thaiss, or Ward would bring our offense to another level.  

Add mediocre starting pitching and a lockdown bullpen.....ok..wishful thinking!
