Sixty-nine Angels gathered Saturday at Tempe Diablo Stadium for their first full-squad workout of 2017.
Unseasonable rain pounding the Phoenix area nixed that. But, in a rare instance of public comment, their owner, Arte Moreno expressed excitement about the Angels’ chances this season.
He said he believed the team had improved from its 88 losses in 2016.
“We’re gonna try to win,” Moreno said. “We still have some economic flexibility this year. We’ll sort of watch and see what is on the market that may help us in the short term. We feel like we’re gonna be competitive and need to stay healthy.”
