Angels | Albert Pujols has fine day

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 00:16:56 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols had two hits and scored two runs Wednesday, July 20, in a 7-4 win over the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols has been getting better with age. Rather, it's the fact he's escaped serious injury that has Pujols owners happy. Pujols owns a .448 slugging percentage and .255 batting mark, and that alone should have owners wanting to start him in daily and overall leagues.

Angels | Albert Pujols destroys Rangers

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 22:07:36 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols went 3-for-3 with two home runs and six RBI against the Texas Rangers on Tuesday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols has four home runs and 11 RBI over his last three games, giving him 19 jacks and 71 RBI on the year -- only two players in baseball have more ribbies than the former MVP. He'll never be the guy he was in St. Louis again, but Pujols can still make a difference for fantasy owners in the power categories.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols continues to be an all-or-nothing option, but he is on pace for 30 homers and more than 100 RBI and is still worth starting in all formats.

Angels | Albert Pujols has been productive

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 16:11:22 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols went 2-for-3 with an RBI and has 15 RBI in his last 15 games. He also stole his fourth base of the season Thursday, July 7, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols isn't the hitter he once was and won't help your fantasy team in batting average (.247), but he's on pace for another 30-homer season and has a respectable 57 RBI for the last-place Angels. He remains relevant as a mid-tier fantasy first baseman in all formats.

Angels | Albert Pujols piecing it together

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 22:38:30 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols went 1-for-3 with a double, two walks and a run scored Friday, July 1, against the Boston Red Sox to push his hitting streak to seven games.

Fantasy Tip: A seven-game hitting streak back in the day wouldn't be newsworthy for Pujols, but it is newsworthy to Pujols in 2016, as he is hitting just .248. He remains a must-start fantasy option for his potential.

Angels | Albert Pujols back in the cleanup spot

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 15:51:10 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (hamstring, ankle) is batting fourth as the designated hitter against Oakland Athletics SP Kendall Graveman Thursday, June 23.

Fantasy Tip: While Pujols has 12 home runs and 45 RBI, his .234/.312/.396 slash line is more of what to expect from the 36-year-old veteran. He remains a starter in all fantasy formats, but don't expect prime production from Pujols at any time in 2016.

Angels | Albert Pujols not taking any chances

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 09:34:02 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (hamstring, ankle) has not been swinging a bat, and said, "When I'm good, I'm good, and I'm going to play. Right now, I'm not going to take my chances."

Fantasy Tip: The 36-year-old veteran has a respectable 12 home runs and 45 RBI this season, but his .234/.312/.396 slash line highlights his offensive decline. He remains a viable option in the majority of seasonal leagues, but you should expect to be without Pujols for the immediate future. Stay tuned for updates.
