Angels | Johnny Giavotella has nerve palsy

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 15:43:35 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella (illness) is dealing with fourth-nerve palsy, which has led to double vision. However, his condition is not life-threatening.

Fantasy Tip: This condition could be quite debilitating for a hitter in the major leagues. It's unclear if Giavotella ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will return this year, but he's unlikely to have much fantasy impact if he does. You can drop him everywhere.

Angels | Unclear when Johnny Giavotella returns

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 18:22:05 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella (illness) is expected to re-join the team Friday, Sept. 4. Manager Mike Scioscia said little about Giavotella's progress, and it is uncertain if he will return to playing when he is back with the team.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players can avoid Giavotella ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) until he can officially return and prove his health in multiple games.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella will return this season

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:53:57 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella's (personal) medical issue is not considered serious, and he is expected to return to the team this season.

Fantasy Tip: Giavotella ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) might be worth stashing in deep leagues, but you'll want to take a long look at upgrading given we're in the home stretch of seasonal leagues. At FantasyScore, Grant Green ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) can serve as a potential source of cap relief, but you'll want to keep your expectations in check.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella to DL

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 11:55:44 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella (personal) was placed on the disabled list with a "personal medical condition" Tuesday, Aug. 25. 2B Grant Green is likely to play second base every day in Giavotella's absence.

Fantasy Tip: Because Giavotella's situation is a bit unclear, you should hang onto him for now if you own him in deeper leagues, but be prepared for the chance that we don't see him again this year. Green ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) offers very little offensive upside and should be ignored at FantasyScore.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella out again

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 15:40:28 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella (illness) is out of the lineup Saturday, Aug. 22, with OF Kole Calhoun hitting leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Calhoun ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has a high price to use when he's moving from the middle of the order to leadoff. He has a decent matchup against Marco Estrada and has hit three homers in the last seven days so he's worth the FantasyScore play.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella out due to illness

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 15:52:30 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella (illness) has left the stadium because he is sick Friday, Aug. 21, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Keep tabs on Giavotella's ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) status for the game Saturday, Aug. 22. Ryan Jackson ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is starting at second base Friday, and he could receive another start, if Giavotella misses additional time. Jackson is nothing more than an ill-advised desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella sitting Friday

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 15:19:31 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 21. SS Ryan Jackson is starting at second base and hitting eighth against Toronto Blue Jays SP David Price.

Fantasy Tip: You have no business going with Jackson ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) as your shortstop on FantasyScore, especially against Price, who has been really stingy since being traded to Toronto.

Angels | Erick Aybar sitting Saturday

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 15:05:45 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Erick Aybar (back) is out of the lineup again Saturday, Aug. 15, with 2B Johnny Giavotella hitting leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Giavotella ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) faces ace Johnny Cueto tonight, so he might not be the best start on FantasyScore.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella dropped in order

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 15:36:48 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella was dropped to eighth in the order against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Wednesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: The acquisitions of David Murphy and David DeJesus will likely mean a permanent drop in the batting order for Giavotella ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) and with it a decrease in his daily fantasy value. Giavotella is more of a low-end second base option in daily leagues.

Angels | No Johnny Giavotella Friday

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 17:17:35 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. SS Taylor Featherston is starting at the keystone and hitting ninth against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker.

Fantasy Tip: Featherston ($1,600, 3.2% of cap), who has just five hits in 44 at-bats this year, isn't worth your time on FantasyScore.
