Los Angeles Angels Organization Discussion

Jedi Knight Kole Calhoun - Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

I am now working on the Chicago Cubs Top Prospect list for 2014. The next team on the agenda is the Los Angeles Angels, to be followed by the New York Mets, Toronto Blue Jays, Cincinnati Reds, and Baltimore Orioles.

Use this thread to discuss the Los Angeles Angels system. Some points of potential discussion:

***This is obviously a thin organization, especially compared to some of the teams we've done lately. Is it as bad as my initial impression makes out? If you were running this organization, what would you do to boost the system as quickly as possible?

***The trio of bats at Double-A Arkansas, C.J. Cron, Taylor Lindsey, and Kaleb Cowart, gets most of the attention, but are these really impact players or more role type guys?

***Outfielder Zach Borenstein had an excellent year for High-A Inland Empire in the California League, hitting .337/.403/.631. But you know the question here: that's the California League, he's already 23, and it may be an illusionary breakout. That said, the scouting reports aren't bad and the obvious thing to do is bump him up to Double-A and see what happens. What's your guess?

***Kole Calhoun: real or not? My guess is that Calhoun is quite real, a very solid major league hitter who will continue to exceed expectations. Agree or disagree?

***As always, feel free to discuss sleepers you may like. Any more Calhouns there?
