Actual Spring Training baseball games are right around the corner, and all of us will be watching intently. How does Albert Pujols look at first base? Can Shohei Ohtani actually hit and pitch? Is Mike Trout still Mike Trout? This episode of Locked On Angels kicks off with the top 5 things to watch in Tempe as the Angels get ready for exhibition play. Shohei Ohtani's every move will be closely watched as he makes his much anticipated debut, both on the mound and in the box. They may only be exhibition games, but for anxious baseball fans, they are everything that we need. Just seeing Mike Trout manning center field will be a huge sigh of relief. In the weekly Wild Wild West segment, we take a quick look at the Houston Astros to see how the Angels stack up to the defending champions ahead of Opening Day. George Springer, Jose Altuve, and Carlos Correa give Houston a formidable core to go along with a deep starting rotation. Not too many holes in this squad, and they will be difficult to dethrone out west. Lastly, Major League Baseball's pace of play changes for 2018 are out, and we give our takes on what to expect the first month of the season. Martin Maldonado strongly disagrees with the new limit on mound visits, and frankly, we cannot help but to agree. Also announced in this episode: our initial lineup of guests! Coming soon!

The debut episode of Locked On Angels brings you a quick introduction to the host, Patrick Zajac, before diving into an offseason recap to prime you for Angels Spring Training. The media follows Shohei Ohtani's every move, Justin Upton provides stellar protection behind Mike Trout, while Ian Kinsler and Zack Cozart provide ample upgrades to both the offense and defense. The organization certainly "won" the offseason, but we'll find out soon if that translates to a playoff berth in 2018. Later in the show, Patrick discusses his best of the weekend, breaking down what Eric Hosmer signing with the Padres means to the greater MLB landscape, and urges folks not to forget about the Minnesota Twins as they bulk up their starting rotation. Lastly, Pat reviews a few recent transactions the Angels completed, shipping out CJ Cron to Tampa Bay while bringing in Chris Young and Chris Carter as added depth pieces.
