The latest Gregorio Petit MLB and fantasy baseball news

From -- thru  --


Angels | Yunel Escobar out Monday

Mon, 30 May 2016 14:19:18 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Yunel Escobar (wrist) is not in the lineup Monday, May 30. SS Gregorio Petit is starting in his place at third base and batting ninth opposite Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar left Sunday's game with a bruised left wrist, so it's no surprise to see him out of the batting order for this evening's contest. This will give Petit a chance, though the 31-year-old is very limited with the bat. Kole Calhoun is also affected by this, as he gets bumped back up into the leadoff spot.

Angels | Carlos Perez, Gregorio Petit out

Sun, 29 May 2016 11:18:48 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Carlos Perez and SS Gregorio Petit are not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Doug Fister Sunday, May 29. SS Cliff Pennington will start at shortstop and is batting seventh, while C Jett Bandy will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Bandy is hitting .286 in limited playing time this season but is not a strong option in most leagues. Pennington is hitting only .217 in the first two months and probably can be avoided in most leagues.

Angels | Carlos Perez, Brendan Ryan out

Sun, 15 May 2016 12:14:36 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Carlos Perez and SS Brendan Ryan are not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Sunday, May 15. C Geovany Soto will start at catcher and is batting seventh, while SS Gregorio Petit will start at shortstop and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Soto is hitting .231 with one home run and one RBI this month but should still be a starting candidate in two-catcher leagues and some daily fantasy leagues. Petit has gone 2-for-5 since joining the Angels but is not a great option at this point.

Angels | Cliff Pennington placed on disabled list

Fri, 13 May 2016 17:27:40 -0700

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have placed SS Cliff Pennington (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained left hamstring. In a corresponding move, INF Gregorio Petit has been recalled from Class AAA Salt Lake.

Fantasy Tip: Pennington's tenure as the Angels' No. 1 shortstop was short-lived, after Andrelton Simmons (thumb) went down with a sprained left thumb that will have him sidelined for six to eight weeks. At this point, it is uncertain if Brendan Ryan will receive most of the action at short while Pennington is sidelined or if he will split time with Petit. However, neither player should be considered as anything more than middle infield depth in AL-only fantasy leagues.

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.

Yankees | Chase Headley not playing

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 12:56:02 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Chase Headley is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 8. SS Gregorio Petit is starting at the hot corner and hitting ninth against Oakland Athletics SP Scott Kazmir.

Fantasy Tip: Petit ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is a light-hitting utility infielder that doesn't have value at all for FantasyScore players. Ignore him.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran to DL

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 12:45:48 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran (oblique) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique muscle. The move is retroactive to Wednesday, July 1. In corresponding moves, the club also recalled OF Ramon Flores and IF Gregorio Petit from Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and optioned OF Taylor Dugas to Class AAA.

Fantasy Tip: This move was widely expected for Beltran ($3,900, 7.8% of cap), who may need some time to recover from this injury. At the best, he'll be back just after the All-Star break, but age and the injury may conspire to keep him out longer.

Yankees | Didi Gregorius sitting out

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 14:04:26 -0700

New York Yankees SS Didi Gregorius is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 25. SS Stephen Drew is playing shortstop and batting sixth, and SS Gregorio Petit is playing second base and batting ninth against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players will want to avoid all three middle infielders Thursday. Drew ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is just returning from a paternity leave, and Petit offers little upside and has no track record of success in the majors. Plus, Keuchel is a capable starter.

Yankees | Gregorio Petit lands on DL

Wed, 06 May 2015 19:50:36 -0700

The New York Yankees placed INF Gregorio Petit (hand) on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, May 6, due to a bruised right hand.

Fantasy Tip: When healthy and in the starting lineup the reserve infielder is only worth using in FantasyScore as a salary saver option.

Yankees | Chase Headley sitting Tuesday

Tue, 05 May 2015 14:14:40 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Chase Headley is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 5. SS Gregorio Petit is starting at the hot corner and hitting ninth in the batting order against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada.

Fantasy Tip: Petit ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has just six hits in 31 at-bats (.194) in backup duty for the Yanks this year, and this light-hitting utility infielder should be ignored everywhere.
