Angels scouts rack up miles


The Angels continued to focus on college talent in Day 3 of the draft. Of their 25 picks, all but two were from four or two-year colleges.

The most surprising aspect of the Angels' draft is that they have yet to take a player from California. One name that stands out: pitcher Kenneth Hatcher from Dallas Baptist. He's the nephew of recently fired Angels hitting coach Mickey Hatcher.

Here are the team's picks from Wednesday:

2B Cody Eaves, Pasadena Memorial High (Texas)

RHP Yency Almonte, Columbus High (Miami, Fla.)

3B Ryan Dalton, Texas-San Antonio

RHP Aaron Newcomb, Delta State

OF Quintin Davis, McLenna CC (Texas)

RHP Patrick Lowery, Columbia

C Anthony Bemboon, Creighton

3B Mike Snyder, Florida Southern

RHP Garrett Bush Flagler

CF Kyle Johnson, Washington State

LHP Tyler Deloach, UNC-Wilmington

1B Wade Hinkle, Kansas State

OF Joel Capote, St. Thomas

SS Caleb Bushyhead, Oklahoma State

LHP Nicholas Dellatorre St. John’s River JC (Florida)
