Angle will have a tough road with Showalter, who has shown a propensity to play favourites (Reynolds, Scott, Pie…). Angle at least has a chance but he needs to be a leadoff hitter to stick, get on base a lot or he has no job.
Hadn’t even spared him a thought, thanks for mentioning him. While he’d have decent OBP and speed, I doubt he’ll contribute much with the bat. While it’s far from perfect, I could see Reggie Willits being a good comp for the kind of production you could expect

Sounds like a pretty good set-up. Thanks for the heads up – I hadn’t noticed his situation yet.
