OC Register: Angels promote prospect Zach Neto, send down David Fletcher

Recommended Posts

BOSTON — The Angels promoted 2022 No. 1 draft pick Zach Neto on Saturday morning and sent infielder David Fletcher to Triple-A, a stunning roster shakeup.

Neto, 22, was hitting .444 with three homers at Double-A, including two homers Friday night. In his career, he’s played just 44 pro games, hitting .322 with a .937 OPS. The shortstop played extensively in spring training this year, demonstrating he is major league-ready defensively, at least.

Fletcher, 28, had slipped on the Angels’ depth chart, starting just four times in their first 13 games. He was 2 for 16. They notably didn’t even use him as a defensive replacement to protect late leads Tuesday and Wednesday.

Fletcher signed a five-year, $26-million deal prior to the 2021 season.
