Angels | Johnny Giavotella caps rally

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 19:36:45 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella drove in the go-ahead run in an 11-10 win over the Texas Rangers Saturday, Oct. 3, finishing 3-for-5 with a double, three RBI and a run scored.

Fantasy Tip: Giavotella ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has been coming through in the clutch lately, and he has seven RBI in his last six games. He is worth a look as a source of cap relief in the season finale.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella back at the keystone

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 14:53:35 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella (illness) was activated from the disabled list Friday, Sept. 25. He is starting at second base and batting ninth against Seattle Mariners SP Vidal Nuno Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Giavotella ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) missed approximately a month due to vision limitations related to a nerve issue. He stands as a true dice roll at FantasyScore Friday due to his lengthy absence, poor play when he was healthy (.662 OPS this season) and unfavorable lineup spot.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella could be back soon

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 15:19:43 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella (illness) saw live pitching Tuesday, Sept. 22, and manager Mike Scioscia said Giavotella's vision is fine. He could return to action this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Time is running out in the season, and even if Giavotella ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) returns sometime this weekend, there's not really much he can do for your fantasy squads. Leave him to the waiver wire unless you're really desperate in a cavernous league. He won't be an attractive pick on FantasyScore if he starts anymore games this season.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella not close to returning

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 08:57:01 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella (illness) took swings in the cages Thursday, Sept. 17, but manager Mike Scioscia said he is not close to returning. Giavotella has been out since Sept. 5 with a nerve issue that gives him double vision.

Fantasy Tip: At this point it's unlikely that Giavotella ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) makes it back at all for the Angels as a liability when they're trying to get into the postseason. Don't rely on him in any fantasy formats.

Mon, 14 Sep 2015 15:38:26 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella (illness) has been cleared to take batting practice Tuesday, Sept. 15.

Fantasy Tip: There's no timetable for Giavotella ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) to return; it could be days or weeks. Don't count on him for the remainder of the year in fantasy baseball leagues, whether it be traditional formats or daily.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella swinging a bat

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 16:31:27 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella (illness) is hitting off a tee and taking ground balls, and he is hoping to take batting practice Monday, Sept. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Giavotella's ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) palsy condition, while not life-threatening, can be debilitating for a hitter. Expecting him to come back and make any kind of impact for the rest of this year is wishful thinking.

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.
