Angels | Three Angels not in the lineup

Sun, 01 May 2016 11:13:13 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Rafael Ortega, C Carlos Perez and 2B Johnny Giavotella are not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels Sunday, May 1. C Geovany Soto will start at catcher and is batting sixth in the lineup. OF Shane Robinson will start in left field and is batting eighth, while SS Cliff Pennington will start at second base and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Soto has at least one hit in six of his last seven starts and has six RBI during that span. Soto could be used in two-catcher leagues. Owners should avoid using Pennington and Robinson for the time being.

Angels | C.J. Cron, Johnny Giavotella sitting

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:58:25 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron and 2B Johnny Giavotella are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 27. 1B Ji-Man Choi is serving as the designated hitter and is batting ninth, while SS Cliff Pennington is at the keystone and is hitting seventh against Kansas City Royals SP Chris R. Young.

Fantasy Tip: Giavotella and Pennington are likely locked into a platoon and should only be rostered in the deepest AL-only leagues, with Pennington being the more attractive one. Choi, a switch-hitter, has only one hit in nine at-bats off the bench this year and is a very weak daily target tonight.

Angels | Platoon at 2B for Angels?

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 15:20:55 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Cliff Pennington is starting at second base over 2B Johnny Giavotella for the second time in the last three games Monday, April 25, and this could wind up being a platoon between the two infielders. Pennington, a switch-hitter, would start against right-handers and Giavotella would start against lefties.

Fantasy Tip: Neither player is much of an offensive force, and Giavotella has issues on defense, too. Because neither will see consistent at-bats at the keystone, their fantasy value is limited to deep AL-only leagues as middle infield insurance. Pennington is a lotto ticket for the desperate in daily formats tonight against Kansas City Royals starter Ian Kennedy.

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 14:36:06 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella and 1B C.J. Cron are out Saturday, April 23, with 2B Cliff Pennington hitting seventh and 1B Ji-Man Choi hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Pennington nor Choi make good DFS plays tonight against Felix Hernandez.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella not in lineup

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 14:48:24 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 19. SS Cliff Pennington is starting at second base and is batting ninth against Chicago White Sox SP Mat Latos.

Fantasy Tip: Giavotella is off to a 4-for-32 (.125) start and could continue to lose playing time at the keystone. Pennington is himself a light hitter and is more known for his defensive prowess. Look elsewhere for salary cap saviors in daily fantasy formats.

Angels | Carlos Perez, Johnny Giavotella out

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 09:03:19 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Carlos Perez and 2B Johnny Giavotella are not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco Saturday, April 16. C Geovany Soto will start at catcher and is batting eighth, while SS Cliff Pennington will start at second base and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Soto and Pennington have received limited playing time over the first two weeks of the season. Soto could be a sleeper option for owners in daily fantasy leagues, but owners in most leagues likely will be able to find better options for both positions.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella sitting

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 15:27:20 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 11. SS Cliff Pennington is starting at the keystone and is hitting ninth against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray.

Fantasy Tip: Pennington only hit .210 last year with three home runs and 21 RBI in 105 games, so he's clearly not strong with the lumber. Avoid him in all fantasy formats Monday night.

Angels | C.J. Cron, Johnny Giavotella not playing

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 14:54:54 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron and 2B Johnny Giavotella are not in the starting lineup Friday, April 8. 1B Ji-Man Choi is starting at first base and hitting seventh, while SS Cliff Pennington is at the keystone and is hitting ninth against Texas Rangers SP A.J. Griffin.

Fantasy Tip: While Griffin is as shaky as they come for starting pitching in a spot start against the Angels, daily gamers still won't have much interest in using Choi or Pennington as cheap daily options. Look elsewhere.

Angels | Halos 2B competition open

Thu, 18 Feb 2016 12:08:14 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia said the team's second base competition is open and will be between 2Bs Johnny Giavotella, Rey Navarro, Gregorio Petit and Cliff Pennington.

Fantasy Tip: Giavotella was the Angels starter for most of the year in 2015, and he should have the edge for the most playing time here, but his defense may betray him. Giavotella makes the most contact and has a little speed to contribute double-digit steals over a full season. None of these options are spectacular, though, so they're mainly filler in AL-only leagues.

Blue Jays | Troy Tulowitzki out Saturday

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 11:46:44 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Troy Tulowitzki is not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer Saturday, Oct. 3. INF Ryan Goins will play shortstop and bat eighth, while INF Cliff Pennington plays second base and bats ninth.

Fantasy Tip: This was a scheduled off day for Tulowitzki ($3,800, 7.6% of cap), who went 2-for-5 in his return to action Friday, Oct. 2. Goins ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is batting .474 over the past seven days and is worth considering as a FantasyScore value play, while Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 1-for-13 over the same stretch and should be ignored in FantasyScore.
