As the Los Angeles Angels are now past the halfway point of this year's spring training, a handful of prospects have had standout performances so far. These young players with their high level of play have shown that the organization must keep a closer eye on them from here on out. So without further ado, here are the Angels' top five prospects of spring training.
The 25-year-old right-hander this spring training has shown that he has put last season's experience to good use as he has been dominant on the mound. In his five appearances this spring training he has thrown 4.1 scoreless innings with just three hits allowed. If Boshers continues to be an effective pitcher, a call-up to the bigs could in line for him this upcoming season.
The 27-year-old is having an outstanding spring training as he is batting an astronomical .429 (6-for-14) to go along with two RBIs in 10 games played. Field also seems to be using his major-league experience last season to his advantage as he is certainly making a case for an Opening Day roster spot as a backup infielder. There is still plenty of baseball to play, but so far Field has looked impressive at the plate to say the least.
The Angels' No. 2 rated overall prospect heading into the 2014 season has played quite well as he is batting .400 (6-for-15) with one home run and six RBIs in eight games played. Cron's high level of play has brought up comparisons to former Halos' outfielder Mark Trumbo. Nonetheless, the 24-year-old has shown plenty of promise this spring training as a big league call-up could be the cards in the somewhat near future.
The 26-year-old has taken full advantage of his increased playing time this spring training as he is batting .425 (17-for-40) with one home run and seven RBIs in 16 games played. His 25 total bases on 17 hits leads the Halos so far this spring training,. If Long continues to swing a hot bat the plate, a backup outfielder spot on the Opening Day roster may become a possibility.
The 26-year-old has been nothing short of dominant this spring training as he has pitched nine scoreless innings with just three hits allowed. This vast improvement made by Rasmus is a big jump considering he was seen as a work in progress at last season's trade deadline. Nonetheless, His high level of play sure is a pleasant surprise for the Angels.
