Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Jefry Marte is starting at first base and batting fifth, and 2B Gregorio Petit is starting in left field and batting eighth against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy Wednesday, July 27. Angels 1B Ji-Man Choi and OF Daniel Nava are not in the starting lineup Wednesday.
Fantasy Tip: These are all low-end option in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, so there is limited fantasy value here. Marte does have some power upside, and hitting behind the four best players on the team improves his value in daily contests.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Ji-Man Choi is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. 3B Jefry Marte is playing first base and is batting fifth against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez.
Fantasy Tip: Marte should only be owned in the deepest of AL-only leagues for bench depth, as he's batting just .224 (24-for-107) with five home runs and 14 RBI. He doesn't play much, either, and that's really saying something considering the Angels have one of the thinnest rosters in the majors due to injuries.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Daniel Nava, 2B Johnny Giavotella and C Jett Bandy are not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman Sunday, July 10. INF Jefry Marte will bat fifth and play first base, 1B/OF Ji-Man Choi will start in left field and hit sixth, C Geovany Soto will start behind the plate and bat eighth and INF Gregorio Petit will hit ninth and play second base.
Fantasy Tip: Soto is making his first appearance since being activated from the disabled list due to a torn meniscus in his right knee and should be avoided in his first game back. Marte and Choi are both batting well below the Mendoza line this season and are not worthy of consideration for daily fantasy lineups, while Petit is nothing more than a source of emergency cap relief.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Ji-Man Choi will bat sixth and play first base against Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo Saturday, July 9.
Fantasy Tip: Choi was just 1-for-18 in a previous stint with the Halos earlier this season and should be avoided in all fantasy formats Saturday.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron (hand) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, July 9, because of a broken hand. The team also recalled 1B Ji-Man Choi from Class AAA Salt Lake.
Fantasy Tip: Cron will miss multiple weeks because of the injury, but owners should keep an eye out for a possible timetable for him. Owners should keep him on their roster if they can because he was playing well before the injury. Jefry Marte should see more playing time because of the injury and will have value in deeper mixed leagues. Choi likely will be a bench player and is an AL-only player at this point.
