Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Joe Smith (hamstring) was activated from the disabled list Friday, July 1. In a corresponding move, RP Mike Morin was optioned to the minors.
Fantasy Tip: Smith is worth a speculative add for fantasy owners chasing saves, or at worst, he's a player to watch. Current closer Huston Street has allowed eight runs over his past 4 1/3 innings and has blown two of his past three save opportunities. It's a situation to watch.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Joe Smith (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring injury. In other corresponding moves, RP Javy Guerra was designated for assignment, and SP David Huff and RP Mike Morin were called up from Class AAA Salt Lake.
Fantasy Tip: If Huston Street weren't back already this might have been a disaster for the Angels, but Street is back and healthy so Smith lost much of his fantasy value at that point. File Smith away on your disabled list accordingly but keep him handy for later in the year in case Street gets hurt again.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Huston Street (oblique) was activated from the disabled list Monday, May 30. The team also optioned RP Mike Morin to Class AAA Salt Lake.
Fantasy Tip: Street was out to a strong start this year before landing on the shelf for over a month. He'll slide right back into the closer's role, and can also be plugged back into fantasy lineups right away as a result. Joe Smith, meanwhile, will return to set-up duty and can still be useful in leagues that score holds.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Mike Morin struck out two in a perfect ninth inning to earn his first save of the season Sunday, Sept. 27, against the Seattle Mariners.
Fantasy Tip: With Huston Street expected to miss the remainder of the regular season with a groin injury, Morin was given the first chance to handle the ninth inning. With a 5.29 ERA this year, it remains to be seen if the job is his alone, but Morin is still worth grabbing if you are desperate for saves.
