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.

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.

Angels | Chris Snyder signs

Mon, 18 Mar 2013 13:27:00 -0700

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim signed C Chris Snyder (Nationals) to a minor league contract Monday, March 18. "We want catching depth; we're looking to provide the staff with as many options as we can. Obviously, Chris comes in on a minor league contract, so he's going to have to compete for a spot. John Hester, Luke Carlin and Hank Conger, all of them, still have an opportunity to win that spot, as does Chris," general manager Jerry Dipoto said.

Fantasy Tip: The signing likely means Conger is ticketed for the minors to start the year so he can work on his defense and throws to the bases. Snyder, or whoever else wins the backup job, will only be valuable in AL leagues or two-catcher setups.

Angels | Hank Conger has three more errors

Mon, 11 Mar 2013 13:56:12 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Hank Conger had three more throwing errors Sunday, March 10, but manager Mike Scioscia is happy that Conger is still being aggressive. Conger said he feels great and he continues to work on his throwing mechanics. He's 7-for-17 with two home runs and a team-leading 10 RBIs. Conger's throwing woes may ultimately keep him from winning the backup catching job.
