Angels | Halos could use four-man rotation

Sun, 29 Mar 2015 11:37:25 -0700

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are expected to begin the regular season with a four-man starting rotation and an eight-man bullpen, according to manager Mike Scioscia. SPs Jered Weaver, C.J. Wilson, Matt Shoemaker and Hector Santiago are expected to start the first four games of the season. The Angels will not need a fifth starter until April 14, but injured SP Garrett Richards (knee) is unlikely to be available by then.

Fantasy Tip: This means that SPs Andrew Heaney and Nick Tropeano will likely begin the year in the minors but one of them could be recalled to make the start April 14. Neither pitcher has much value in universal leagues, although Heaney has the bigger upside and could be worthy of consideration in the later rounds of AL-only drafts.

Angels | More on Jered Weaver's velocity

Thu, 12 Mar 2015 09:50:00 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver's fastball velocity sat mainly at 83-84 mph in a three-plus inning start Wednesday, March 11, which is three or four ticks slower than his average fastball velocity in 2014. Weaver said he typically doesn't go full intensity in spring starts until has last couple of outings. However, he also noticed that he was "getting a little too long" and was messing with the timing of his delivery. Weaver is set for four more Cactus League starts before the regular season. Manager Mike Scioscia is not worried about Weaver.

Fantasy Tip: Because of the dip in velocity in recent seasons, Weaver's strikeout totals are several tiers below the big fantasy pitching guns. However, he has proven to be able to successful rely on change of speeds and location with the Halos, making him worth a selection as a No. 2 or 3 fantasy starter in the middle rounds.

Angels | Jered Weaver's velocity is down

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 17:40:44 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver is pitching with less velocity. Angels manager Mike Scioscia blamed the velocity drop on Weaver's mechanics.

Fantasy Tip: It was previously reported Weaver gained weight to get stronger and pitch deeper into games. News of his velocity drop would seem to contradict him getting stronger. His velocity has been on a steady decline in recent years, and Weaver's production has slipped with it. Perhaps it's a mechanical issue -- as Scioscia suggests it is -- but monitor his velocity this spring. Unless he throws harder, though, continue to draft Weaver in the later rounds of drafts.

Angels | Jered Weaver building strength

Sun, 25 Jan 2015 19:04:26 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver has increased his weight from 199 pounds to 224, about as high as it has ever been. Weaver is focused on getting bigger and stronger during the offseason so he can pitch deeper into games during the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners will be happy to see Weaver working on his stamina, as more innings and complete games are obviously great news for his fantasy value, and more strikeouts could follow, too.
