Team to watch
The California League can be an exciting circuit to watch, because it is so offensive-minded. Keeping track of Inland Empire, then, should be fun, especially to see what 2015 first-round pick Taylor Ward does for an encore after hitting .348/.457/.438 during his pro debut last summer. He'll be joined by fellow 2015 Draft pick David Fletcher, a sixth-rounder who hit .311/.377/.414 in his own debut. With everyone healthy, the 66ers could have eight of the Angels' Top 30 on the roster.

Salt Lake Bees
General manager Billy Eppler's first move with the Angels was a waiver claim, picking up outfielder Todd Cunningham from the Braves. Despite a sore wrist, he made a solid impression in big league camp this spring and will wait for a callup while playing for Triple-A Salt Lake.
On the shelf
A trio of college bats taken over the past two Drafts are starting the year on the disabled list. Jake Yacinich, a 2014 draftee, is nursing a sore shoulder. Jared Foster, a 2015 fifth-rounder, cut his knee near the end of camp. He and Yacinich will likely head to Burlington and the Midwest League when they are ready to go. Kyle Survance, last year's eighth-round pick, should head to Inland Empire once his pulled hamstring has healed.
