Featured autograph - Josh Rutledge

After being acquired from the Colorado Rockies, I assume Rutledge will be part of a mix of guys [among them Grant Green, Johnny Giovatella, Taylor Featherston and perhaps Cuban import Roberto Baldoquin] - who will get an opportunity in the spring to work at second base for the Angels.

Regardless of who ends up as the Opening Day second baseman in 2015 - Angels manager Mike Scioscia and his coaches are probably anticipating seeing how Baldoquin, a Cuban import plays in spring training games against MLB pitchers.

Rutledge on the other hand, looks like he can hit a little bit, though had the usual Coors Field home / away batting splits - I don't think he is going to be terrible with the bat, but it's 50/50 whether or not he'll be able to hit well enough at sea level to be the every day guy for the Angels at second base.
