What the potential LA Angels line-ups will look like against Lefties and Righties in 2020

When the LA Angels signed third baseman Anthony Rendon to a seven-year deal last month it totally changed the complexion of the Angels line-up and created a couple of platoon situations. Let’s look at some of the potential line-ups the Angels can field provided everyone is healthy starting next season.

Optimal Line-Up vs. Left-Handed Pitchers

2B – David Fletcher

CF – Mike Trout

3B – Anthony Rendon

LF – Justin Upton

DH – Shohei Ohtani (when it doesn’t interfere with his pitching)

1B – Albert Pujols

SS – Andrelton Simmons

RF – Michael Hermosillo (later in season it will be Jo Adell)

C – Max Stassi (Until we acquire someone better)

Analysis –

This line-up is solid until you reach the eighth spot as Michael Hermosillo is a crapshoot if he will even make the team.
