Neto, 22, is starting Saturday’s game against the Boston Red Sox and will bat eighth. He will be the first 2022 draft pick to debut in the majors — after only 44 minor league games with Double-A Rocket City in which he hit .322/.408/.529 with three home runs in 27 at-bats this season. He’s expected to take over at shortstop full-time.

He was the 13th selection in last year’s draft. After signing, Neto, rated as the No. 84 prospect in all of baseball by ESPN entering this season, started at the Double-A level in 2022, hitting .320 in 122 at-bats.

Fletcher, who is making $6 million in his sixth season with the Angels, is hitting just .125 with 1 RBI through eight games.

In another roster move, the Angels moved right-hander Chris Rodriguez to the 60-day injured list.
