Angels | Daniel Robertson starting Saturday

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 15:04:19 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Daniel Robertson is starting in left field and hitting ninth in the order Saturday, July 4, against the Texas Rangers and LHP Wandy Rodriguez. OF Matt Joyce comes out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Robertson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) doesn't have a single extra-base hit in 31 plate appearances at the major league level this season, and he doesn't offer any upside while batting ninth.

Angels | Matt Joyce will not start

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 15:35:20 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Monday, June 29. 1B Albert Pujols will serve as the designated hitter and is batting fourth, while 1B C.J. Cron will start at first base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Cron recently rejoined the team but probably is not a great option for fantasy owners at this point.

Angels | Matt Joyce back in a platoon

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 15:13:48 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Brett Oberholtzer Monday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) last started against a left-handed pitcher Sunday, June 7, so it is pretty clear he has returned to a platoon and is starting only against righties. However, given his .186/.274/.319 slash line, there currently isn't a lot of lure to utilize Joyce in any fantasy format.

Angels | Matt Joyce hitting sixth

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 16:05:31 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce will hit sixth in the lineup Tuesday, June 16, against the Arizona Diamondbacks and RHP Jeremy Hellickson.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) should have the advantage with the LHH vs. RHP matchup, but he's still hitting just .193 against righties this season, and he has struggled tremendously of late. Joyce should be completely avoided on FantasyScore.

Angels | Matt Joyce not in lineup

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 12:18:45 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce is not in the starting lineup against the Oakland Athletics Sunday, June 14. OF/1B Efren Navarro is playing left field and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is batting .303 in 33 at-bats this year but he's facing Sonny Gray this afternoon, so he is not a great FantasyScore option.

Angels | Kirk Nieuwenhuis coming up?

Thu, 28 May 2015 10:33:06 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis is expected to be called up from the minors Thursday, May 28, after the team traded for him Wednesday, May 27. He is likely to start in left field against right-handed pitchers, with OF Matt Joyce serving as the designated hitter. 2B Grant Green or OF Alfredo Marte could start in left field against lefties.

Fantasy Tip: Nieuwenhuis ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) had just three hits in 38 at-bats (.079) with the New York Mets before being traded to the west coast. His value will be limited to deep AL-only leagues with increased playing time with a new team. Avoid him for now at FantasyScore.

Angels | Collin Cowgill scratched

Sun, 24 May 2015 10:23:28 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Collin Cowgill (undisclosed) was scratched from the starting lineup Sunday, May 24. OF Matt Joyce will take his place in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see when Cowgill ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) will be able to return. Joyce ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has also been struggling at the plate and probably should be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.

Angels | Matt Joyce start time confusion

Wed, 20 May 2015 06:02:57 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce was benched Monday, May 18, after mistakenly believing the game started at night since the Angels played a day game Sunday, May 17. Angels manager Mike Scioscia called the move a "lineup decision" Monday, and Joyce cleared the air the next day. Joyce was not fined for the mishap.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is struggling in 2015 and should be in your lineup only against right-handed pitchers. Avoid him unless you're looking for a cheap source of cap relief.

Angels | Collin Cowgill receives start

Fri, 15 May 2015 11:33:32 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Collin Cowgill will be the starting left fielder against the Baltimore Orioles Friday, May 15. OF Matt Joyce is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) probably is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed starter. Cowgill ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has struggled at the plate so far this season with a .184 batting average and is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Angels | Matt Joyce hitting cleanup

Thu, 07 May 2015 14:44:18 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce is hitting cleanup against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Thursday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: It seems very odd that a player hitting just .148 (12-for-81) would be in the cleanup spot, but the Halos are trying to get Joyce ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) going against a right-hander. Until he shows more signs of life, though, you should avoid him at FantasyScore.
