O’Hoppe to miss 4-6 months with torn labrum in shoulder

Angels manager Phil Nevin told reporters (including Sam Blum of The Athletic) today that catcher Logan O’Hoppe has a torn labrum on his left (non-throwing) shoulder that will require surgery. The 23-year-old catcher, who was placed on the 10-day injured list yesterday, is expected to miss four to six months, potentially putting his season in jeopardy.

O’Hoppe was acquired by the Angels at the trade deadline last season in the deal that sent outfielder Brandon Marsh to the Phillies. A consensus top-50 prospect in the sport entering the 2023 season, O’Hoppe earned the Angels’ starting catching job out of camp this season despite having just five games of big league experience under his belt as Max Stassi began the season on the injured list. The youngster was off to an impressive start this season, with a .283/.339/.547 slash line across 16 games that was good for a wRC+ of 142.

This is a bummer. On multiple levels.

Of course, the Angels have #### luck. But more than that they trade from surplus (kind of) to fill a long term need and this happens. Additionally, he had a similar reaction to a swing in Boston a few days prior to this diagnosis - maybe they could have caught this before surgery was needed? Probably not, but it would have been nice to know before he had to go through that agony.

Also, Stassi is AWOL with a phantom hip injury.

Chad Wallace is a fine #2 - but this makes me worry that Quero will be up in May - way earlier than expected.

####. This team needs Drury, Rengifo, Walsh, and Ward to step up. Now. Otherwise 2023 is a lot like 2016-2022.

I see the Angels pretty often, and losing O'Hoppe is a real drag for them.
