Mike Trout ranked 13th in this list of the best base runners in Major League Baseball. Jose Quintana started for the Angels Yesterday. They had Adell get right back on the horse, though it’s still the start of spring training. It wasn’t pretty, but the Angels won anyway. Walsh got the start at first base and we got a chance to see Lagares patrolling center.
Shohei Ohtani hit 100 MPH during a 35 pitch live batting practice on Saturday. Meanwhile, Packy Naughton has a grade 1 strain of the UCL in his elbow because of course he does. Grade 1 means it is apparently not torn. Robel Garcia is gone to Houston. Let’s hope Mayfield doesn’t suck too bad. Also, Jesse Chavez was signed to a minor league deal with the Angels. Happy belated birthday to Franklin Barreto.
