Long odds of making Angels don’t faze Taylor Featherston

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error TEMPE, Ariz. >> Mike Scioscia didn’t have to think very long to recall the last Rule 5 draft pick to make an Opening Day roster with the Angels: Pitcher Derrick Turnbow in 2000, Scioscia’s first year as manager.Fifteen years later, Turnbow is the only Rule 5 draft pick ever to stick with the Angels under Scioscia. Don’t tell that to Taylor Featherston. Actually, go ahead. Tell him.“You have to be a firm believer that you can compete and hold your own and at least tell yourself that you’re the best on the field,” Featherston said. “Even if that’s true or not, I feel that attitude is going to be the best for any player.” A calculated stubbornness is really helpful for someone in Featherston’s position. As a Rule 5 pick, the Angels can’t send him to the minor leagues. If healthy, Featherston is either on the Angels’ 25-man roster on Opening Day or going back to the Colorado Rockies, who chose not to protect Featherston during the Rule 5 draft in December.That means Featherston, who’s never played an inning above Double-A in his life, must outperform infielders Grant Green, Johnny Giavotella and/or Josh Rutledge — all of whom have major league experience. One of the four will get the majority of the playing time at second base. The other will back up at second base, shortstop and maybe third too.There’s a reason no Angels Rule 5 pick has beaten the odds in 15 years — the odds are beyond long.Featherston, 25, doesn’t see it that way, but he isn’t really paying attention.“For the most part, you have to take those thought processes out of your head and just focus on your daily routine, geting better every day,” he said. “Nothing’s changed from High A to Double A to Fall League to here. The only difference is the guys in the room, more people watching the games, that’s it.”center_img Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto insists that Featherston’s odds aren’t all that long, period.“What Taylor’s shown us so far is that he is mature on the field beyond what his level of play to this point would suggest,” Dipoto said. “He gets in the box and it’s composed. He battles through his at-bats. He really grinds. I think he’s done a great job taking advantage of the opportunity. It’s there for him.”So far Featherston has good reason to feel like he belongs. In his first 12 Cactus League at-bats — a postage-stamp-sized sample against an ecletic group of pitchers — he has three singles, a double and four RBIs. Featherston has also made two errors at second base in 16 chances, and what he does in the field might mean more than anything he does at the plate. The player Featherston is essentially replacing on the roster, John McDonald, was a defensive whiz.“With Taylor, he played collegiate ball, played through Double-A, he’s shown the makeup to handle stuff,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “Hopefully he’ll match it with the physical things we need on the field.”#FerrellTakesTheFieldActor/comedian Will Ferrell played all nine positions on the diamond in five different Cactus League games Thursday, a made-for-TV stunt that gained wide attention. Ferrell’s game-used memorabilia will be auctioned off for charity at a later date.Ferrell played one inning in center field for the Angels in Tempe, cleanly fielding a routine single up the middle. Mike Trout was allowed to return to his position afterward.Using a helicopter and a car to shuttle around greater Phoenix, Ferrell appeared in two more afternoon games, then joined the Dodgers for their night game against the San Diego Padres in Peoria.Taking the mound in the bottom of the seventh inning, Ferrell pitched one-third of an inning. The 6-foot-3 right-hander threw one pitch to Padres batter Rico Noel, who intentionally bunted the ball back to the mound. Ferrell threw out Noel, then was removed by Dodgers manager Don Mattingly in mock disgust. Ferrell wore number 19 for the Dodgers, which had been retired by the franchise to honor Jim Gilliam.AlsoZack Greinke will start one of the Dodgers’ two games against the Texas Rangers at the Alamodome in San Antonio, either March 20 or 21. Mattingly said that Clayton Kershaw will not make the trip. … Dodgers pitchers Mike Adams and J.P. Howell (groin) emerged from their recent mound sessions healthy and could return to game action this weekend. … Former Dodgers staffer Colin Gunderson is returning to Camelback Ranch this weekend to sign copies of his new book, Tommy Lasorda: My Way, along with the Hall of Fame manager. There will be two signings in the center-field pavilion: 6-8 p.m. Friday and noon-2 p.m. Saturday.last_img read more
