Interview Conducted by David Saltzer, Senior Writer

One of the players who generated a lot of buzz both with the Angels and with Angels fans is Jose Rondon. At just 19, he has shown advanced hitting and fielding skills while playing a premium position (SS). He has a good blend of power and speed, and an advanced understanding of the strike zone. Over the course of the season, he finished with a 30:31 BB:K ratio in 68 games. 

On the season, Rondon ranked in the top 10 for the Pioneer League in hits, doubles, walks, stolen bases and rbis. He hit almost the same at home as he did on the road (.294 vs. .293), and almost the same against righties as he hit against lefties (.297 vs. .281).

At 6'1", Rondon has room to fill out and add power. That may take him away from shortstop, though there's no need to move him from there right now--he's a plus defender.
