Angels Notes: Geovany Soto headed for knee surgery

Geovany Soto hits the DL, Jett Bandy makes his way to the Big A

The hits just keep on coming...and I mean the injury hits, not, like, actual baseball game hits. Geovany Soto has had a pretty good season so far, wouldn't you say? He's currently hitting .283 with a wOBA of .335 and a wRC of 132. That's not bad, not bad at all for a random pickup from new GM Billy Eppler. He's currently outshining my breakout season pick, Carlos Perez, and proving to be quite the feather in Eppler's cap. Well, he WAS, at least. Word just broke that Soto is going to the DL, and it's not just for a couple weeks. Turns out, he's got a torn meniscus and will be put on the...

Billy, we don't need another catcher

We are just over a month away from the 2016 amateur draft. How does the Angels system-wide catching depth look? A catcher??  That's who the Angels pick up in round 1 of the 2015 amateur draft?   There is no question the Angels farm system is thin, but where are we most in need? Hint: It's not behind the plate.  Let's take a look at catching depth around the Angels organization. MLB: Geovany Soto, 33Soto has done a great job for the Halos so far this season, but it's quite possibly he doesn't last past 2016.  Do we still need him?  Probably not.  Depending on how 2016 goes, he's not a...
