So yeah, I know, I promised a look at the position players the Angels have invited to camp as non-roster invitees, but I'm tired of trying to format statistics in Blogger. So here's the quick and dirty list of folks to watch for:

Erick Aybar - shortstop - flashy defense, hit over .300 at low-A Cedar Rapids last year.

Alberto Callaspo - second base - Aybar's double-play partner last year (and probably this year, too), even better at the plate, will probably advance a little faster.

Nick Gorneault - outfield - one of the few outfield prospects in the Angels' system. He hit .321 with 14 HR for Rancho Cucamonga from April through July of last year, then was promoted to Double-A Arkansas - which apparently really pissed him off, since he hit .345 (38-for-110) the rest of the year.
