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.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella leading off

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 10:32:32 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella is leading off Thursday, June 18.

Fantasy Tip: Giavotella ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) hasn't done much to be excited about with a .267-2-21 line on the year. He has some upside in this spot in the lineup with Erick Aybar resting as a low-end option on FantasyScore.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella out Tuesday

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 16:10:26 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella isn't in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 16, against the Arizona Diamondbacks and RHP Jeremy Hellickson. SS Taylor Featherston will start at second base and hit ninth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Featherston ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has just three hits in 37 plate appearances this season, and he should be avoided on FantasyScore whenever he makes a rare start.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella up to fifth spot

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 11:32:32 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella is hitting fifth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Colome Thursday, June 11.

Fantasy Tip: Giavotella ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has basically hit at the very bottom of the Halos batting order for most of the year, so this move up could significantly impact his fantasy value, at least for today. It surely will give him more opportunities to drive in runs, but he still likely remains a lower-end second base play due to his lack of pop.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella leading off vs. Detroit

Fri, 29 May 2015 14:49:42 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella is hitting leadoff against Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez Friday, May 29, with SS Erick Aybar (hamstring) sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: Giavotella ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has cooled off considerably in May (.235/.284/.296) after a hot first month (.317/.380/.413). Because of his recent slump, he could be a great contrarian play while hitting in a favorable lineup spot tonight. Plus, Sanchez has given up 14 earned runs in his last two starts, including five long balls.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella still the starter

Wed, 27 May 2015 16:30:32 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella will still see most of the playing time at second base, but 2B Grant Green will occasionally mix in, according to manager Mike Scioscia.

Fantasy Tip: Giavotella ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is hitting just .211 (16-for-76) with five RBI in May after coming out hot in April after winning the job in spring training. He won't be very valuable at FantasyScore for the rest of the year, aside from being a deep sleeper option that can save you money on the rest of your lineup.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella resting

Wed, 27 May 2015 15:23:04 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 27. 2B Grant Green is starting at the keystone and hitting ninth in the batting order against San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner.

Fantasy Tip: Green ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will be mainly used for infield depth by the Angels, and he'll likely be an afterthought at FantasyScore, especially while hitting at the bottom of the order.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella sitting out

Sun, 24 May 2015 09:26:36 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 24. 2B Taylor Featherston will take his place in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Giavotella ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return soon. Featherston ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has only one hit in 20 at-bats this season and should not be considered by owners on FantasyScore.

Wed, 20 May 2015 13:06:24 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 20, against the Toronto Blue Jays. SS Taylor Featherston is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: It appears to be an off night only for Giavotella ($2,900, 5.8% of cap). As for Featherston ($1,600, 3.2% of cap), he carries no fantasy value at the moment.
