BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2016 The bat wasn't ready, but the Halos were in need of a backup middle infielder, and Featherston was, like the mountain, there after being selected in the Rule 5 draft from Colorado (technically by the Cubs, who traded him to the Angels). Featherston broke camp with the big club and filled in as a late-inning replacement on defense. With Johnny Giavotella out of action and Grant Green sidelined down the stretch, Featherston played like a man over his head for three weeks of starting duty; he predictably struggled to barrel up big-league fastballs and was generally left vulnerable to the authoritative presence of MLB pitchers. Another year of seasoning might be nice, but he's 26 at this point and last year was essentially a waste. Maybe Rule 5 isn't such a hot idea after all.
2015 The Angels have recently traded away some of their fringe-bat middle infielders. Taylor Featherston, a 2011 fifth-round pick of the Rockies who led the Texas League in total bases, was acquired to refill the pool.
