Angels' Brandon Marsh: Takes seat Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marsh is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Rockies.

Marsh started the past nine games after being promoted from Triple-A Salt Lake on July 18, but he'll receive the day off Wednesday. The 23-year-old is 7-for-32 with three doubles, four walks, two RBI, three runs and 10 strikeouts to begin his major-league career. Juan Lagares will start in center field in his place.

Angels' Brandon Marsh: Swipes first big-league bag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marsh went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in a loss to the Athletics on Tuesday.

The rookie was one of three Angels to reach base more than once in the contest, and he notched his first stolen base as a major-leaguer following a sixth-inning walk. Marsh collected double-digit steals each year in the minors between 2017 and 2019, so he can certainly be an asset in that department for fantasy managers. Through three games with the Angels, he has gone 4-for-11 at the plate.

Angels' Brandon Marsh: Logs three hits Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marsh went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Angels.

Marsh had a great performance in what was otherwise a disappointing outing for the Angels. He logged his first major-league hit on a single to center to begin the second and later drove in his first run on a double to left in the ninth. Though he had a hitless debut Sunday, the 23-year-old certainly created some buzz Monday, and he should continue getting opportunities to showcase what he's got until Mike Trout (calf) is ready to return.

Angels' Brandon Marsh: Hitless in big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marsh went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts Sunday against the Mariners.

Marsh started in center field and batted seventh in his first game as a major-leaguer. Despite the rough debut, he figures to see regular playing time in center field, at least until Mike Trout (calf) is able to return.

Angels' Brandon Marsh: Receives call to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Angels manager Joe Maddon said that Marsh has been called up from Triple-A Salt Lake ahead of Sunday's game against the Mariners, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports. Marsh will start in center field in the series finale.

The 23-year-old, who is regarded as one of the top prospects in the system, earned his first big-league call-up after slashing .255/.364/.468 with three home runs and two stolen bases across 110 plate appearances this season at Salt Lake. Marsh hasn't demonstrated the ability to consistently generate power from his 6-foot-4, 215-pound frame, but the toolsy outfielder's well-rounded skill set should make him an appealing pickup in mixed leagues where available. He's likely to receive an extended trial as the Angels' everyday center fielder given the limited production that journeyman Juan Lagares (.606 OPS on the season) has provided while Mike Trout (calf) has been on the 60-day injured list.

Angels' Brandon Marsh: Back with Salt Lake
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marsh (shoulder) has been activated from the injured list at Triple-A Salt Lake, Jared Tims of Talkin' Halos reports.

Marsh hit the injured list in early June with right shoulder inflammation. The Halos' top prospect played in four games for the rookie-level ACL Angels in a rehab assignment, and he is now set to resume his Triple-A campaign. Marsh is currently slashing .183/.338/.317 through 74 plate appearances at Salt Lake, so he'll likely need to see an improvement at the plate in order to gain serious consideration for a big-league callup.

Angels' Brandon Marsh: Homers in first rehab game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marsh (shoulder) went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in a start for the rookie-level ACL Angels on Saturday.

Marsh returned to action for the Arizona Complex League squad after missing over a month with shoulder inflammation. He had slashed .183/.338/.317 with one homer and one stolen base across 74 plate appearances with Triple-A Salt Lake prior to the injury and will likely head back to that level after his rehab stint is complete.

Angels' Brandon Marsh: Out with shoulder inflammation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marsh landed on the injured list for Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday due to right shoulder inflammation, though the issue isn't considered serious, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

At-bats are available in the Angels' outfielder with Mike Trout (calf) expected to be out past the All-Star break, but the team has so far turned to the likes of Juan Lagares and Taylor Ward rather than giving opportunities to Marsh or fellow prospect Jo Adell. Marsh wasn't exactly making a strong case for a promotion even before his injury, however, hitting just .183/.338/.317 in 16 Triple-A games. It's not clear exactly how long the shoulder issue will keep him out for, but he'd likely need several weeks of much stronger numbers if he's to earn a call-up.

Angels' Brandon Marsh: Call-up not forthcoming
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Angels have no immediate plans to call up Marsh or Jo Adell from Triple-A Salt Lake after Mike Trout was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a calf strain that will likely keep him sidelined for 6-to-8 weeks, Daniel Guerrero of MLB.com reports.

Marsh, the Angels' top prospect, is off to a hot start through six games at Triple-A, slashing .273/.448/.545 while drawing seven walks against nine strikeouts in 29 plate appearances. Though Marsh and Adell would represent the highest-upside options in the organization that could help fill in for Trout, the Angels are apparently content to proceed with Taylor Ward and Juan Lagares as their main center fielders for the time being. In Marsh's case, the Angels may want to see him find more sustained success at the Triple-A level after he missed out on some development time due to the cancellation of the 2020 minor-league season, then battled a labrum injury during spring training. The 23-year-old still appears likely to make his MLB debut at some point in 2021, if health prevails.

Angels' Brandon Marsh: Joins Triple-A Salt Lake
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marsh was added to the roster of the Angels' Triple-A affiliate Thursday.

Marsh was held out of the start of the minor-league season while recovering from a shoulder injury, but he was deemed healthy enough to play center field and bat leadoff for Salt Lake on Thursday. The outfield prospect wasted little time showing off his big bat, smashing a solo home run in his second plate appearance. Marsh is likely to get his first call-up to the big leagues this season, and that could happen relatively soon if he gets off to a hot start with Salt Lake.

Angels' Brandon Marsh: Eyeing mid-May for Triple-A debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marsh isn't expected to make his 2021 debut for Triple-A Salt Lake while he continues to rehab a shoulder injury, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

The 23-year-old saw action for the Angels as a designated hitter in spring training, but he wasn't cleared for outfield duty in Cactus League games while he ramped up from a labrum injury. Since spring training concluded, Marsh has remained in Arizona to continue his throwing program, and he appears to be nearing full clearance. One of the Angels' top position prospects, Marsh could make his MLB debut at some point in 2021 if he proves at Triple-A that his shoulder issue isn't a lingering concern.

Angels' Brandon Marsh: Starting spring game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marsh (shoulder) is in the lineup for Saturday's spring game against the Padres.

Marsh has dealt with a shoulder injury over the past several days, but he'll be back in the Cactus League lineup Saturday. The 23-year-old appears to be healthy and should begin the season at the Triple-A level.

Angels' Brandon Marsh: Playing field in B game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marsh (shoulder) is starting at first base and batting second in Sunday's "B" game, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

The 23-year-old was previously expected to play center field in Sunday's game, but he'll instead start at first base. Marsh could still shift to the outfield during the contest. He has yet to play the field in Cactus League action this spring while recovering from an offseason labrum injury, but his appearance in the "B" game is a good sign for his progression. Marsh was optioned to the minors last week and is poised to open the season at the Triple-A level.

Angels' Brandon Marsh: Throws from 90 feet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marsh (shoulder) played catch from 90 feet Friday and has no limitations, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Marsh has yet to play in the outfield this spring as he continues to recover from a labrum injury suffered last season. He recently stated that he has been set back after tweaking his shoulder but doesn't consider the issue to be serious, per Blake Harris of SB Nation. Marsh has already been optioned to the minors and won't break camp with the Angels. He is scheduled to play center field in a "B" game on Sunday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Angels' Brandon Marsh: Optioned off roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marsh (arm) was optioned to the minors Tuesday.

Marsh was always expected to open the season at the Triple-A level, and with an arm issue slowing him down throughout camp, he hasn't really had the chance to make an unlikely charge toward a roster spot. He should be a candidate for a midseason call-up if he looks good in the minors to start the year.

Angels' Brandon Marsh: Still not playing outfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marsh has yet to get any defensive reps this spring, but he is expected to make his outfield debut in about a week, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Marsh has been held back defensively as he continues to recover from a shoulder labrum injury that he suffered last season. However, the 23-year-old has been swinging the bat, going 2-for-8 with a triple and an RBI in a DH role. It appears that he'll be ready to play the field soon, allowing him to potentially test the shoulder in Cactus League action. Marsh is expected to be moved to the team's alternate training site prior to Opening Day and to kick off the campaign at Triple-A. He could get his first big-league call-up this season.

Angels' Brandon Marsh: Playing catch to 90 feet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marsh (arm) has been playing catch out to 90 feet, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

The Angels' top prospect was listed as an available reserve for Wednesday's game, but it sounds like he would be limited to DH duties at the moment. He was unlikely to make the Opening Day roster in any case, but once he's fully healthy, he could push for a first-half promotion.

Angels' Brandon Marsh: Available as reserve Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marsh (arm) is listed among the Angels' available reserve players for Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Indians.

Marsh may not be ready to play the outfield while he works his way through a throwing program, but he should be an option to replace starting designated hitter Max Stassi at some point during Wednesday's game. The 23-year-old is expected to open the 2021 season at Triple-A Salt Lake after slashing .300/.383/.428 over 412 plate appearances at Double-A Mobile in his last minor-league season in 2019.

Angels' Brandon Marsh: Starts throwing program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marsh (arm) began a throwing program Sunday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Marsh has been dealing with an unspecified arm issue and has been limited to designated hitter duties thus far in camp. If he he's cleared to take the field soon, he could be ready to play by Opening Day, though he isn't likely to be under consideration to break camp with the team as he's yet to play above Double-A.

March 6, 2021 07:36 AM
Angels' Brandon Marsh: Should play field soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marsh (arm) is getting closer to seeing time in the outfield, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Marsh has been limited to DH duties thus far in the spring due to what has been described as a minor arm issue. He has collected one hit -- a triple -- in three Cactus League at-bats and appears just about ready to get some reps in the outfield.
