The LA Angels have a history of not producing much talent from their farm system but over the past few years there have been improvements in this area. The Angels have focused on high upside prospects who are athletic. Jo Adell is a world class athlete with the tools and makeup to be the next big thing. His power is 70 grade and he has speed to easily steal double digit bases annually. There are some concerns about his contact skills as the strikeout rates are high but overall Adell is improving in this area. I expect to see Adell in the majors this year and benefit from the media coverage around Mike Trout and Anthony Rendon.

Conclusion: Mike Trout's help is on the way. I would focus on base non-autos and paper non-autos. His auto is short printed so the price may be too high for most. I think Adell is going to be a star. You can live with the strikeouts as the five tool ability is insane.

  1. With the trade of Joc going to LA...do you think Adell breaks camp with the team? Should we now take a wait and see approach because if he doesn't break camp, will price go down?

    1. He should break camp but I expect him to be in the minors due to service time. His price wont drop especially since he will be top 5 on every top 100 list and could crush spring training pitching.

    1. I would look at recent auction prices on Ebay. Seems they are going for less than $100. Market could be heating up as we get closer to the season.
