Angels | Chris Iannetta using contacts

Thu, 13 Feb 2014 16:41:43 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Chris Iannetta used contacts down the stretch last season, and they were a big reason he finished the last two months with a slash line of .263/.366/.453. He only uses the contacts for games, and he thinks it made a big difference. "I started seeing the ball a lot better," Iannetta said. "Even catching, (before contacts) I felt the ball was jumping on me. I was focusing so hard to find a release point and I wasn't reacting the way I know I can, and I didn't really know why."

Blue Jays | Interested in adding catching

Mon, 21 Oct 2013 12:11:29 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays are interested in trading for Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Cs Chris Iannetta or Hank Conger, according to a person familiar with the team's plans. C J.P. Arencibia hit just .194 with 21 home runs, 55 RBIs and a .592 OPS in 138 games this year. He's eligible for salary arbitration next year after he made $505,600 in 2013.

Angels | Hank Conger seeing more playing time

Fri, 28 Jun 2013 20:46:48 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Hank Conger has seen more playing time lately, which is a combination of the struggles of C Chris Iannetta and Conger's overall improved play offensively and defensively.

Fantasy Tip: Conger has thrown out more would-be base stealers than Iannetta, and he is seeing more at-bats. He is worth using as a No. 2 catcher in AL-only fantasy leagues.

Angels | Hank Conger seeing more time

Tue, 07 May 2013 16:03:16 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Hank Conger is catching SP C.J. Wilson's fifth straight start, but manager Mike Scioscia said it has more to do with C Chris Iannetta's struggles. Scioscia isn't necessarily trying to pair Conger with Wilson. "First and foremost, we want him to get a little more of a comfort level behind the plate. He's doing a good job, but it just doesn't look like he's as comfortable as he needs to be back there. On the offensive side, he hasn't gotten a lot of hits to fall in, but that's secondary to what our starting pitchers need especially," Scioscia said.

Angels | Hank Conger catches again

Wed, 01 May 2013 20:56:26 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia used C Hank Conger for the fourth straight start of SP C.J. Wilson, but he said he is not pairing Conger and Wilson exclusively. Conger also started Tuesday, April 30, and was used again because Scioscia said C Chris Iannetta was still "a little stiff" after catching 18 2/3 innings Monday, April 29, against the Oakland Athletics.
