Joyner to represent Angels at Draft

ANAHEIM -- The Angels will be represented by former first baseman Wally Joyner at the 2010 First-Year Player Draft.

Joyner, a star for the club from 1986 through 1991 who returned for a final season in 2001, will be a presence, but the man calling the shots from his Angel Stadium office will be Eddie Bane, director of scouting. And he will be a busy man.

The Angels own three first-round picks and two first-round supplemental picks, giving them five of the first 40 overall selections. The first-rounders are Nos. 18, 29 and 30 overall, and their supplemental picks are Nos. 37 and 40.

The windfall of early selections was created by the departures of Chone Figgins and John Lackey to Seattle and Boston, respectively. As Type A free agents, they returned two first-round picks and two supplemental picks.
