WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE

Angulo signed just before the 2018 DSL season started, at age 19.

2018
DSL:  245/355/294, 102 AB, 1 2B, 2 3B, 16 BB, 14 K, 5-7 SB

Angulo played sparingly in June, then more in July and August.  He hit decently, with very good plate discipline and very little power.  He threw out 42% of base stealers and also started three games at first.

2019
R:  230/321/270, 74 AB, 3 2B, 8 BB, 11 K, 1-4 SB

Angulo split the catching duties in the GCL with Dylan Shockley.  He had eight passed balls, which isn’t a good total for 24 starts, and threw out 22% of base stealers.  He didn’t do much at the plate, beside making consistent contact.

The Pirates have a lot of lower level catchers, none of whom really looks like a prospect.  Angulo will probably be assigned in 2020 based on how the Pirates see his defense.
