Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout has hit .394 with four homers in 33 career at-bats against Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis, who starts Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Trout has a .360-5-18 line this month, and he's a high-end consideration nearly every day.

Angels | C.J. Cron sitting Tuesday

Tue, 24 May 2016 13:02:13 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. OF Mike Trout is serving as the designated hitter, while OF Shane Robinson gets the start in center field and is hitting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez.

Fantasy Tip: This allows the Angels to give Trout's tender ankle a rest. As long as he's in the lineup he should be employed everywhere in seasonal leagues. Robinson has next to no fantasy value at the bottom of the order, and he has three hits in 16 at-bats (.188) for the Halos with a career .236 average in the majors. Avoid him.

Angels | Mike Trout excels against Rangers

Mon, 23 May 2016 13:08:37 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout is batting .329 with 18 home runs, 64 RBI and a .592 slugging percentage in his career against the Texas Rangers, who he faces this week. He ranks No. 1 among active players with at least 100 at-bats against the Rangers with a .450 on-base percentage. He's also hitting .321 with a .583 slugging percentage at Globe Life Park and is 11-for-38 (.289) with two home runs, nine RBI and 11 strikeouts against Rangers SP Derek Holland.

Fantasy Tip: It's not a surprise that one of the best players in baseball has dominated a tough division opponent, especially when Globe Life Park is a notorious hitter's stadium. Against the struggling Holland, it's worth paying up for Trout in daily games tonight.

Fantasy Tip: Trout owners are exhaling everywhere. Trout's batting average has gone from .220 to .327 in the course of a month. He belongs in all formats, as it appears the slump Trout was in has come to a happy end.

Angels | Yunel Escobar sitting out Friday

Fri, 13 May 2016 17:01:16 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Yunel Escobar (thumb) is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 13. 3B Jefry Marte is starting at the hot corner and is batting eighth against Seattle Mariners SP Nathan Karns. OF Kole Calhoun moves up to the leadoff spot, with OF Mike Trout hitting second and 1B Albert Pujols hitting third.

Fantasy Tip: The Angels expect Escobar to be fine and possibly return to the lineup as early as tomorrow. That makes Marte one to avoid in all formats tonight and moving forward. Escobar has been a productive on-base man for the Angels at the top of the order but doesn't contribute much outside of average for fantasy owners.

Angels | Mike Trout staying put with Angels

Fri, 06 May 2016 15:30:19 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout will not be traded, general manager Billy Eppler said Friday, May 6. "We have no intent or desire to consider moving Mike Trout he's not moving."

Fantasy Tip: Trout is scorching hot with 10 runs, six home runs, 18 RBI and a .407/.467/.833 slash line through his past 14 games, as he quiets any early-season doubts about his fantasy value. He is an elite option who is capable of finishing 2016 as the most valuable hitter in our virtual game. However, it is worth noting his supporting cast with the Angels is underwhelming, and could hinder his upside slightly over the long haul.

Angels | Mike Trout does damage Wednesday

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:50:34 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout launched his seventh home run of the season Wednesday, May 4, opposite the Milwaukee Brewers. He finished the day 2-for-4 with a run scored and two RBI. He also added a triple and a walk.

Fantasy Tip: It's funny to think people were actually concerned when Trout carried a .220 batting average going into April 20. He's now up to .317 only a couple weeks later, and also has 22 RBI to go with those seven home runs. Trout should continue to be one of the best players in the game as the season wears on.

Angels | Mike Trout heating up

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 09:28:42 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout hit his fifth home run in a winning effort over the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, April 27. He's hitting .353 in his last 14 games after starting the year 5-for-27. Nine of his 37 career hits against the Royals have been home runs.

Fantasy Tip: He also has four home runs in his last seven games, proving that his slow start is already a thing of the past. If you were considering buying low, that opportunity has already passed. There's a reason he was in consideration once again for the first overall fantasy pick this year.
