The Los Angeles Angels system has become depleted largely due to promotions of some guy named Mike Trout and Garrett Richards, trades that sent Jean Segura and Johnny Hellweg to Milwaukee, and poor showings in recent drafts. But there is a legitimate top prospect and some young players who could help the parent club soon.
Below are my top 16 prospects with 2013 opening day age, position, and comments on each player. Below the top 16 is a small list of additional notable names. Enjoy.

The Los Angeles Angels have built a farm system through the draft that has turned some solid upside picks into legitimate prospects.
But, there are a few things that seem to plague the Angels’ system. One is a legitimate top-of-the rotation starting prospect. Another is that it seems like an injury bug went through the system, taking down any prospect that stood in its way. And the third is a lack of plate discipline outside of the top prospect and one that most will not have in their top 10.
Below are my top 16 prospects with 2012 opening day age, position, and comments on each player. Below the top 16 is a small list of additional notable names. Enjoy.
