The Angel’s first comprehensive squad exercise routine occurred on Presidents’ Day underneath cloudy skies in the low 50’s in Tempe (with additional than a handful of raindrops exhibiting up as effectively). Here are some photos.
Around 70 followers showed up to see the legendary Mike Trout, the legendary Albert Pujols and the legendary Andrelton Simmons be joined by two new infielders, Tommy La Stella and Justin Bour, together with some enjoyable prospective clients making their debuts in MLB Spring Training.
Outfielders Jo Adell, Brandon Marsh, Jared Walsh and Brennon Lund created their debut using some outfield practice with Trout and Kole Calhoun. Also rounding out the outfield practice squad were being Michael Hermosillo, Cesar Puello, Jarret Parker and Peter Bourjos. (Justin Upton didn’t just take aspect in the exercise routine now – reviews explained he experienced some tendinitis).
After some basic fly ball drills the OFs took some batting practice – the skilled MLBers on Subject 1, and the young guys on Subject 2. [If you’re looking to read tea leaves, Parker and Puello joined the kids on Field 2 while Bourjos spent the day around his ex-OF teammates Calhoun and Trout]. And indeed, Walsh was using OF practice, not 1B or Pitching)
Amid the some others appearing in today’s photographs (other than a handful of additional catchers and pitchers), there’s Arte Moreno, Billy Eppler and Bill Stoneman far too. Also making an visual appeal are MSM defeat writers – Jeff Fletcher, Fabian Arday and Maria Torres.
As for infielders, I didn’t devote far too any time observing them just take grounders as I was mostly seeing the OFs, but that will be tomorrow’s purpose to see What is on 2nd and I-Don’t-Know’s on 3rd (we currently know Who’s on To start with). I did get a handful of pictures of Tommy La Stella, David Fletcher and Taylor Ward shagging for the duration of BP.
Justin Bour will hit some HRs this 12 months – he’s a huge remaining-handed bat.
