California dreaming
The Angels signed Roberto Baldoquin to an $8 million in December after he left Cuba to pursue his dream of playing in the Major Leagues. The next step of his journey will take him to Class A Advanced Inland Empire, where he will make his professional debut. Right-hander Chris Ellis, the Angels' third-round pick last year, will also begin his first full professional season with Inland Empire.
