Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Luis Jimenez has impressed in the absence of 3B Alberto Callaspo (calf) and has impressed scouts. "He has been a good spark for them," one scout says. "I see him as an eventual super-utility type who can play all over. We will see how he reacts after the advance guys get a look at him – see if he can respond after pitchers adjust for the first time."
Fantasy Tip: Jimenez should be owned in deeper AL leagues with Callaspo on the disabled list, and it's looking quite possible that Jimenez could stick around in a utility role when Callaspo comes back. Jimenez possesses nice power to all fields, but his batting average will drop in a larger sample size.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim placed 3B Alberto Callaspo (calf) on the 15-day disabled list Friday, April 19, and recalled P Michael Kohn from the minors in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Callaspo hadn't been improving enough to warrant keeping him on the roster. Luis Jimenez has been filling in at the hot corner nicely and should now be added in AL leagues.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim recalled INF Luis Jimenez from the minors Friday, April 12. SS Erick Aybar (heel) is taking batting practice Friday, so he's still not expected to land on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Jimenez may be another option to fill in at shortstop while Aybar heals, but he shouldn't be looked to for fantasy consideration. There is still a chance Aybar lands on the DL if he doesn't improve this weekend.
