Not exactly a year later, the Angels obtained him from Tampa Bay as a feature of an exchange focusing on C.J. Cron. Presently 22 years old, Rengifo is falling off a decent first taste of the significant groups. The switch-hitter wasn’t incredible at the Triple-A level, where he sliced .273/.338/.464 crosswise over 122 plate appearances, however he wasn’t a lot of more terrible in his introduction at the game’s most elevated level. Rengifo took 406 outings to the plate as an Angel this past season and batted .238/.321/.364 with seven grand slams and 1.2 fWAR. He stood his ground in the field, consolidating for four Defensive Runs Saved and a 2.5 Ultimate Zone Rating between the two center infield spots.
