Hank Conger

Conger was an Angels fan favorite because he was a local guy who was always upbeat, smiling and approachable - I'm disappointed to see he was traded to Houston last week in exchange for pitcher Nick Tropeano and minor league catcher Carlos Perez.

As is, maybe Conger gets an opportunity to play more, even with Jason Castro as the starting catcher in Houston - it looks like Conger might be facing a similar 'time share' situation, but it seemed like his MLB career stagnated in Anaheim.

Even though Conger was one of the Angels' top prospects for years - Chris Iannetta was just decent enough to stick around the past three seasons and there was never a sense of urgency to give Conger 400-450 at-bats to prove himself.
