Following one of the busiest off-seasons in franchise history, the Los Angeles Angels enter the 2018 season with World Series aspirations. Two-way phenom Shohei Ohtani will join one of the best players in baseball, Mike Trout, to form a dominant duo in Anaheim. Ohtani and Trout will look to guide the Angels to the playoffs for the first time since 2014.
Ohtani comes over from Japan, where he was both a dominant hitter and electric starting pitcher. With a skill set baseball hasn’t seen since Babe Ruth, Ohtani will look to leave his mark on Major League Baseball this year. When he isn’t pitching, manager Mike Scioscia has said Ohtani will likely play in the outfield, at first base, and split time as the designated hitter with future Hall of Famer Albert Pujols. Pujols himself needs just 17 more home runs to pass Ken Griffey Jr. for 6th on the all-time list.
The Angels also signed slugger Justin Upton to a 5 year, $106 million extension to bolster the outfield around Mike Trout and Kole Calhoun. All-Star infielders Ian Kinsler and Zack Cozart were acquired in the off-season to join Gold-Glove shortstop Andrelton Simmons and first baseman C.J. Cron on the infield. General Manager Billy Eppler has finally surrounded Mike Trout with a championship roster, bringing optimism this could be a special year for the Angels.
Shohei Ohtani will join a starting pitching rotation that expects a strong comeback from Garrett Richards. Richards was lights out in 2014 and 2015 before being limited to just 12 games total the past two seasons due to injury. Matt Shoemaker and youngsters Parker Bridwell and Tyler Skaggs round out a starting rotation that will be key to the Angels’ success this year.
