The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim come into the 2012 season with so much promise that it is hard to remember a past Angels team offering so much hope to their fans.
Last season’s Angels team suffered from poor hitting at the catcher and outfield positions, poor choices for a fifth starter, a lack of middle relief and an inexperienced closer who looked equally good and bad at times.
In 2012, the Angels have improved at catcher, improved their offense and increased their depth at every position. The names Pujols, Wilson and Iannetta are the root of the team’s improvement and the cause of hope.
This is a position-by-position breakdown of the Angels 2012 squad.
