The Angels included six of their Top 10 prospects, led by outfielders Jo Adell (No. 1), Brandon Marsh (No. 2) and Jordyn Adams (No. 3) and pitchers Chris Rodriguez (No. 5) and Patrick Sandoval (No. 6). Infielder Jose Rojas, who led the Triple-A Pacific Coast League in total bases last season, also made the cut despite being left off the 40-man roster and unpicked in the Rule 5 draft after last season.
As a team with postseason aspirations, the Angels understandably left off low-level prospects Jeremiah Jackson (No. 4), Arol Vera (No. 8) and Kyren Paris (No. 10), all of who have yet to play full-season ball. RHP Jose Soriano (No. 7) had Tommy John surgery in the spring.
The Angels played it relatively straight, keeping most of their top prospects on their 60-man player pool while also placing a premium on players who are close to the majors and could help them in 2020. With pitchers Shohei Ohtani and Griffin Canning originally expected to miss the start of the season but now able to potentially be ready by Opening Day, the organization's pitching depth is less of a concern than it might otherwise have been.
