Brandon Marsh News
California Angels top prospect Brandon Marsh was placed on the minor league reserve list due to shoulder inflammation. Marsh has had shoulder problems since last summer. He has struggled at the plate in Triple-A Salt Lake, batting .186 in 16 contests. Fantasy managers don't expect the 23-year-old to be in the big leagues anytime soon.
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Brandon Marsh (arm), ranked by MLB Pipeline as the team's top prospect, has been held out of playing defense for precautionary reasons with a minor arm injury. Marsh has still been able to serve as a designated hitter and is expected to be in the lineup on Friday. The 23-year-old left-handed hitter is known as a very solid defensive outfielder with developing offensive skills at the plate. While Marsh is likely to start the 2021 season in the minor leagues, he has a pretty good chance of making his major league debut at some point this season. In the Rookie League and with Double-A Mobile in 2019, Marsh slashed .287/.368/.408 with a .776 OPS, seven home runs, 45 RBI and 19 stolen bases in 101 games.
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Brandon Marsh was placed on the 10-day injured list on Wednesday. Details are unknown, but typically teams have been very protective of players that have tested positive for COVID-19 or are still in the quarantine period. The 2016 second-round pick had been praised as a prospect coming into spring training even though he was not expected to make a major league impact in 2020. But with the shortened season, Marsh has been added to the roster and could be in line to contribute. Marsh was dealing with a shoulder injury in spring training, but the team, per MLB rules, does not have to disclose his injury at this time. He's an attractive stash in dynasty/keeper leagues, but he's unlikely to make any fantasy noise in 2020.
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Brandon Marsh is one of the Angels top prospects, and despite failing to reach triple-A yet, he could be a key component in the team's lineup this season. After recently being optioned to the minors, Marsh won't start the season in the majors but he was added to the 40-man roster this winter and is on the verge of reaching the majors in a full-time role especially after impressing the club at the alternate training site in 2020. The ongoing decline of Justin Upton does leave the Angels light in the outfield, and Marsh has hit at every level that he's played at. In 2019 at the Double-A level, Marsh played 92 games and had a .300/.383/.428 slash line with seven homers and 18 steals. That form continued into the Arizona Fall League, where Marsh hit .328/.387/.522 with two homers and four steals in 19 games. Marsh's defense is such that he can play any of the three outfield spots with an above-average arm and speed that translates into steals. Marsh can help with steals while hitting for a good average if he can translate his minor league prowess to the next level. He has a bit of power and should contribute runs and RBI wherever he lines up in the batting order. Currently with an ADP of 546, Marsh is a late-round speculative addition in deep redraft leagues, but he could be a difference-maker if/when he gets called up and the shoulder issue that slowed him down during the spring is fully healed.
