The projected depth chart provided below is compiled based on input from MLB.com's Los Angeles Angels beat writer, Rhett Bollinger, and is not official. It has not been approved by anyone affiliated with Angels management. It is possible that some players will be listed at more than one position. For example, a certain player might be starting at one spot for the Angels and backing up at another. MLB.com also has included any prominent Minor League players in the Angels' system, based on their likelihood of being called up to fill a void, as opposed to their long-term Major League potential -- though sometimes there is an overlap of those descriptions. You can follow news of Angels injuries here, while depth charts for all 30 teams are here.
