Los Angeles lost out in the battle for what they wanted and needed, an ace pitcher. To fill the void left by that loss, the Angels did add an everyday superstar to go with another everyday superstar. Some accounts say LA has the best current player in the game. Now he has another proven hitter in the lineup to feed off. Last season, the Angels underachieved by 10 full games from their preseason prediction. This year, despite the 2019 regression, most profile them to be even two games better than the prediction they could not live up to last year.

This is a lineup with some really strong batters. They can hit well all the way to the bottom. However, older players who must stay off the DL wield a couple of those bats. They did go out and find a de facto ace to add to the rotation. However, much like 2019, the ambitions of the Los Angeles Angels may hinge on how well a suspect pitching staff can perform. No starter is projected to win more than they lose, and the bullpen isn't considered a strong asset. Beware of the horns hidden under this halo.

Los Angeles Angels FAQ

The Angels offense certainly improves with Anthony Rendon. This gives them another right-handed bat, as they have the best in the game already. Now the top half of the Angels lineup is strong, but the bottom half has some question marks. Justin Upton and Albert Pujols are both up in age, and Pujols has been the one to slip more so, while Upton was injured in 2019. They do have quality contact bats like David Fletcher and Andrelton Simmons in the infield. Both should find their way atop of the order at times where they can lead off and be on-base guys in front of the big bats. Overall this lineup is dangerous, and it will be up to the pitching staff if they want to push to the next level.

Where Does Mike Trout Hit In Order?

Mike Trout is the two-hitter in the Angels lineup, and he is almost always in this spot in the order. Trout is the best player in baseball and has some big names now hitting behind him with Rendon and Ohtani.

Who Is The DH For The Angels?

Shohei Ohtani is the designated hitter for the Angels. While he can play the outfield, he is best used as a DH given he also will be pitching once a week. This is a way to keep him fresh.

Does Albert Pujols Still Start?

Albert Pujols continues to start at first base for the Los Angeles Angels. He is now over the age of 40 and was signed back in 2011 with Los Angeles. Pujols isn’t quite the bat he once was.

What Is The Best Angels Lineup Of All-Time?

The 2000 Los Angeles Angels were an offensive juggernaut but struggled to win games. They had four hitters hit over 30 home runs, and all four of them drove in 100+ as well. Mo Vaughn, Tim Salmon, Darin Erstad were some of the standouts.

What Is The Worst Angels Lineup Of All-Time?

The 1964 Angels scored just 544 runs, which is bottom ten in the team’s history. They lost 80 games as the rotation was able to keep things in check. However, the offense could never put up any runs.

Who Has Played The Most Games For The Angels?

Garret Anderson is the leader in games played for the Angels at 2,013. He played from 1994 to 2008 and is one of the Angels top players in team history. He had over 2,300 hits and over 250 home runs.
