Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B David Freese (finger) was placed on the 15-day disabled list. OF J.B. Shuck was sent down to Triple-A Salt Lake.
Fantasy Tip: Tough break for Freese, who was starting to come around after a slow start. He's really only worth stashing in AL-only leagues.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Grant Green is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake Friday, May 2, according to a source. Green is expected to see a fair amount of playing time. He was hitting for a slash line of .365/.412/.529 through 25 games in the Pacific Coast League, and he had started each of his last six games in left field. Green could take at-bats away from OFs J.B. Shuck and Raul Ibanez.
Fantasy Tip: Green's positional eligibility makes him very attractive in AL-only leagues if he's receiving semi-regular playing time with the Halos. Green hasn't ever had consistent enough PT to transfer his minor league success to the bigs. He has some pop and speed, but he doesn't walk much, so don't expect much out of his BA.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF J.B. Shuck ended a career-high 0-for-22 drought Tuesday, April 29.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim placed OF Josh Hamilton (thumb) on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, April 9, and recalled OF J.B. Shuck from Triple-A Salt Lake.
Fantasy Tip: Shuck had 400 at-bats and hit .300 last season in what was a big surprise for the Angels. He makes enough contact and is quick enough to make an impact again, but don't expect such a lofty BA. He'll likely split time with Collin Cowgill in the outfield with Hamilton sidelined.

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Josh Hamilton (thumb) will have surgery on his left thumb after suffering a complete tear of the ulnar collateral ligament along with a torn capsule. He'll be out six to eight weeks. The Angels have recalled OF J.B. Shuck to replace Hamilton on the roster.
Fantasy Tip: This is a huge blow to Hamilton owners, but this came with the territory when buying the oft-injured outfielder. This is the type of injury that can wipe out an entire season, since thumb and wrist injuries to hitters can erase much of their power. Dropping Hamilton in shallow mixed leagues wouldn't be crazy if you don't have any more room on roster.
Shuck and Collin Cowgill will likely split time in the outfield with Hamilton out. Shuck, who doesn't have much pop but is an asset because of his speed, should be your first choice in AL-only leagues.
