Truth #1: Raising the Floor of the Team
The Angels have been a two-trick pony for the past couple of years. Their roster was outfielder Mike Trout, two-way superstar Shohei Ohtani, and 24 other guys. However, the team made a concerted effort to surround their two all-stars with viable players to raise the floor and possibly the win totals. One month into the season, we can safely say this is true.
Slugger Hunter Renfroe and the versatile league-average bats Gio Urshella and Brandon Drury have provided depth to a lineup that didn't scare anyone last year. Additionally, third baseman Anthony Rendon is back after two injury-plagued seasons and delivering in the cleanup spot.
