By the time you finish reading this sentence the Los Angeles Angels will have started playing actual baseball in 2014. And, of course, Mike Trout will have hit a grand slam.

And with that excitement in mind, the Angels have 32 days (and counting) to get ready for the 2014 season—all while under the pressure to build a solid team that can compete in a tough AL West and make a playoff push.
So far, things looks pretty darn good.
But there is more to the Angels' spring than just phenoms patrolling the center field area. There are a few positions—mostly platoon roles—that should make for some interesting competition.
Based off MLB.com's current depth chart, I have whipped up the Angels' position-by-position breakdown, with my thoughts on which players will start, possibly start, or have a slim chance to start. And there won't be any wasted time predicting or tossing out crystal ball revelations for anything past Opening Day. Right now, that's the most important series and the one the Angels have to prepare for.
After that, well, you know how it goes.
