Brandon Marsh
21-Year-Old OutfielderOF
Los Angeles Angels A+
2019 Fantasy Outlook
A tooled up outfielder who missed time due to injuries early in his career, Marsh came into 2018 poised for significant upward momentum. Everything went according to plan at Low-A, where he displayed his plus power (.174 ISO) and above-average speed (4-for-4 on SB attempts). His .400 BABIP at that level warrants mentioning, but that's not an outrageous mark for a player at Low-A who hits the ball as hard as he does. Marsh earned a promotion to the Cal League in mid-May, where he struggled for much of the summer. He salvaged his High-A slash line late in the season, hitting .294/.368/.461 over his final 24 games, although he was still striking out at a 25.4% clip. The Angels will send him to Double-A for his age-21 season, where he will likely go through another adjustment period. Marsh can play all three outfield spots, and has 25-15 potential, but he is a better bet in OBP leagues, and will eventually slow down (already 6-foot-4, 210 pounds). Read Past Outlooks
Ends skid with three-hit night
OFLos Angeles Angels  A+
August 9, 2018
Marsh went 3-for-5 with a home run and a double Wednesday in High-A Inland Empire's 8-7 loss to Lancaster.
ANALYSIS
Marsh had previously turned in 10 three-hit efforts on the season, but Wednesday's was probably his most-needed from a confidence standpoint. The outfielder entered the contest with a 2-for-32 mark at the plate over his previous nine games, taking some of the shine off what has been a breakout season. With a .248/.345/.376 slash line (99 wRC+) since arriving at High-A Inland Empire, Marsh has roughly been only a league-average performer since moving up to the California League, but his production looks more impressive when considering his age relative to level. The 2016 second-round pick won't turn 21 years old until Dec. 18.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
The only knock on Marsh is that he has just 39 games under his belt entering his age-20 season. Injuries have limited him, but he has legitimate five-category potential. The Angels gave him a little over $1 million in 2016 and he went on to miss the whole season with a stress fracture in his back. He also missed a month last season with a thumb injury. However, when healthy, his tools have really stood out. At 6-foot-4, 210 pounds, Marsh is very physical in the box, on the bases and in the field. He has the speed for center and the arm for right. An above average runner, Marsh's speed plays up on the bases due to his aggressive style and base-stealing acumen (10-for-12 in 2017). He displayed plus raw power in his pro debut, and could eventually be a 30-homer threat. Given the lost developmental time, the most impressive aspect of his season was his exceptional all-fields approach and 18.2 percent strikeout rate. Marsh has the polish and impact potential to move quickly through the lower levels.
