Strong Player Starts (and Not) From Around The League: American League West

trout, mike mad

We hit the National League West players off to hot starts this morning and discussed some that are not.  We now wrap up our look around the league with the AL West…

Houston Astros
Hot
Tyler White, 1B – Talk about a guy coming out of nowhere.  The 25-year old rookie was drafted in the 33rd round of the 2013 draft, turned it on in the minors and has turned in to a starting spot, albeit possibly a placeholder before the #23rd ranked prospect in the Top 100 Prospect for 2016 list, (A.J.

About Shaneo42

I am an amateur blogger but avid Detroit Tigers fan which started out around the age of 7 during the 1984 Tiger season. That year catapulted me to love the game and want to write about it as much as possible. I played some high school ball, rode some pine in college and co-created and wrote Pepper Baseball Blog for eight years. It's time for a fresh start for myself, the blog, and our readers hopefully as I write about the Tigers, Baseball, and my hobby Baseball cards. I hope you enjoy!
