The Best Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim of All Time

List Criteria: Please only rank the players based on their time with the Angels

This is a list of the greatest Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim players .The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (formerly the California and Anaheim Angels) have had a star-crossed history. The team has managed to attract top talent in its past, but these stars have been either a wee bit or entirely past their prime. But that doesn't mean the team hasn't had it's fair share of great players. In 2002, the Angels surprised many when they not only had a great season, but also won the franchise's only World Series title.

Many of the greatest Angels players have been homegrown, with a few exceptions along the way. Tim Salmon is one of the best Angels of all time. The rightfielder spent his entire career in Anaheim and won the 1993 American League Rookie of the Year and the 2002 Comeback Player of the Year after a subpar campaign the year before. Salmon holds the Angels record for home runs and had over 1,000 RBis in his career. 

Another homegrown player is Mike Trout. In his first season, Trout took the league by storm. He led the league in several statistical categories, including runs scored, stolen bases with 49, and a WAR (wins over replacement) with a 10.4 mark. He won the American League Rookie of the Year and finished second to Miguel Cabrera in the MVP voting. The rare five-tool player, Trout represents what should be a bright future for the team and is already in talks to be one of the best Angels ever.
