Here’s everything you need to know about the 2020 Angels from a fantasy perspective:

Starting Lineup

# NAME POS
1 Tommy La Stella 2B
2 Mike Trout OF
3 Anthony Rendon 3B
4 Shohei Ohtani DH
5 Albert Pujols 1B
6 Justin Upton OF
7 Brian Goodwin OF
8 Andrelton Simmons SS
9 Jason Castro C

 

Quick notes: There are rumors Trout could lead off, moving La Stella to the bottom of the order. There is a camp competition for the 2B role between La Stella and Fletcher.

Pitching Rotation

# NAME R/L
1 Andrew Heaney L
2 Julio Teheran R
3 Dylan Bundy R
4 Griffin Canning R
5 Patrick Sandoval L
6 Shohei Ohtani R

 

Quick notes: This is a likely a six-man rotation with Ohtani starting once a week. Canning is also questionable to make the initial rotation as he is having elbow issues.

Bullpen

Quick notes: The closer job has officially been given to Robles, but Joe Maddon is one of the more progressive managers with bullpen usage. There have also been some quiet rumblings that Ohtani could pitch a bit out of the bullpen this year.
