Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Pitcher CJ Wilson

Christopher John “CJ” Wilson was born on November 18, 1980 in Newport Beach, CA. He is a professional baseball pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Attended high school in Fountain Valley in Fountain Valley, CA and attended his college at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA. After graduating high school, Wilson went undrafted. Instead, he was offered walk-on roles at Division I universities. In the end, he chose to attend Santa Ana Junior College. “Realistically, I was physically behind and couldn’t compete at the D1 level yet. Don Sneddon and his coaching staff at Santa Ana really gave me the chance to work my way into maturity by emphasizing self-discipline. I wanted to be a Major Leaguer and knew I could do it with the right amount of work and focus. ”

After two very productive seasons at Santa Ana JC, the young pitcher got a scholarship offer from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. He took the offer and transferred to Fountain Valley believing it would positively impact his chances for the June Draft. His standout performance that year earned him MVP honors in the Orange Empire Conference and California Junior College Co-Player of the Year, thought he still went undrafted.

The sinistral pitcher decided to apply himself in his academics, juggling daily practice while actively making an effort in his passion, film. He took a hefty course load in his major, screenwriting, and attended classes with well known actors, writers, and directors.

He was finally drafted in the 5th round of the 2001 MLB Draft by the Texas Rangers. He was scouted by Tim Fortugno, who also resided in Huntington Beach. “Tim believed in me and took a chance on me. It was the happiest day of my life. ”

The next few years, Wilson started off by flying through the Minor Leagues, starting the 2001 season in Pulaski of the Appalachian League, afterwards being promoted to Single-A with the Savannah Sand Gnats. He moved through High-A Charlotte (Florida State League) and into Double-A Tulsa (Texas League) by late 2002. His exceptional start was not without faults, however, as he encountered several major obstacles, namely:

2001 – Promoted from rookie ball to low-A ball mid season, then suffered stress fracture in leg.
2002 – From High A ball All-Star to complete game playoff win in AA.
2003 – AA ace to open the season, Tommy John Surgery in August.
2004 – Missed entire season, setbacks from surgery including nerve damage.

Wilson’s real breakthrough season came in 2007 when he became the closer for The Texas Rangers, which “was an absolute dream come true.” He was 11 for 12 in saves in just his second full season in the Majors.

2010 saw Wilson named to the starting rotation. Starting in the majors for the first time since his rookie year, Wilson would prove to be one of the best pitchers in the league and would start the second post-season game for the Rangers. In two seasons as a starter, Wilson compiled a 31-15 record with six complete games, one shutout and a 3.14 ERA (427.1 IP – 149 ER) in 67 starts. His 31 wins are tied for seventh most in the Majors over the last two seasons. For his career, Wilson is 43-35, with six complete games, one shutout, 52 saves and a 3.60 ERA in 325 games (73 starts).

By 2011, Wilson’s talents had helped guide Texas to a second consecutive World Series berth. The lefty made a career-high 34 starts (T1st in MLB) registering a 16-7 record with three complete games, one shutout and a 2.94 ERA (223.1 IP – 73 ER) while walking 74 batters and striking out 206. He finished among A.L. leaders in wins (T4th), strikeouts (6th), ERA (7th) and opponents’ batting average (10th, .232). Wilson’s 2.31 road ERA (121 IP – 31 ER) was the lowest mark in the A.L.

Wilson joined the Angels on the same day Los Angeles agreed to a 10-year, $254 million deal with first baseman Albert Pujols. “It’s crazy, obviously, with Albert going over there,” Wilson told reporters. “It’s a big swing of the balance of power in the West. I thought I was going to make a little bit of difference and he’s obviously going to make a huge one. I mean, nobody saw that coming.”

Currently, Wilson is part of a dynamic pitching foursome that also includes Jered Weaver (the ace), Dan Haren (possibly baseball’s most consistent arm the last seven years) and Ervin Santana (among the most electric in the game).

Los Angeles Angels Jeremy Moore

Jeremy Jerome Moore is one of the most aspiring players in the field of baseball.  In fact, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim believes in his potential signing him a contract during September call-ups on the 1st day of September, year 2011.  However, he signed as a draft on the 10th of June, year 2005. Jeremy Moore’s debut in Major League Baseball was on the 2nd day of September and it was a big break for him as the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim made him the team’s outfielder for Major League Baseball.

Jeremy Moore was born on the 29th day of June, year 1987. He was actually born in Shreveport, Los Angeles. Jeremy Moore stands 6 feet 1 inch tall and weighs 190 pounds. At a young age of 24, Jeremy Moore’s passion for playing baseball is really outstanding.  He is in fact a great exemplar of the complex interaction between the skills and tools of a player.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim drafted Jeremy Moore in the 6th round of the 2005 amateur draft when he was in high school in Vivian, Louisiana.  Jeremy was a multi skilled sport star during high school, and rather raw as a baseball player, but the Angels of Anaheim believed that his power and speed combination was commendable of development.  In 2007, Jeremy hit .272 with 14 homers and 17 steals for Orem in the Pioneer League.  Promoted to Low-A Cedar Rapids for ’08, Jeremy hit just .240 and struck out 125 times with just 21 walks in 362 at-bats, but he also hit 12 triples and 17 homers while stealing 28 bases.  Jeremy hit .279/.330/.443 with 11 homers and 17 steals for High-A Rancho Cucamonga in 2009, then .303/.358/.463 with 10 triples, 13 homers, and 24 steals last year for Double-A Arkansas.  Moreover, for Triple-A Salt Lake, Moore is hitting .229/.334/.541 with 23 doubles, 15 triples, 14 homers, 17 steals, and a 20/107 BB/K ratio in 394 at-bats.  Jeremy Moore is a left-handed hitter and right-handed thrower.  Jeremy has a substandard throwing arm; however, this has not stopped the Angels of Anaheim from using him in right field frequently.  Jeremy is indeed fast and can handle center field without any difficulty.  His range is a major asset and his speed also shows up on offense, mainly with the large number of triples he hits.  For four consecutive seasons, he’s surpassed double-digits in triples.  He is still improving his baserunning abilities to go with the speed tool.  Jeremy Moore’s set of predefined tools stands out, and his combination of defensive ability, speed, and occasional power is fascinating.  The imperfections in his skills provide him a high risk factor, but even a small amount of progress in his hitting tactic could lead him a long way.

Jeremy received awards such as MID Player of the Week on the 9th of June, 2008 as well as TEX Post-Season All-Star and TEX Player of the Week in August of 2010.  Jeremy Moore will continue to flourish as a remarkable player of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.  Jeremy started and will continue to make stories and legacy in the history of Major League Baseball.
