Angels | Albert Pujols joins elite company

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 17:16:08 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols went 1-for-5 with a steal in a 13-7 win over the Texas Rangers Sunday, July 26, becoming just the fourth player with at least 500 home runs, 100 steals and a .300 batting average.

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect Pujols ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) to add to his stolen base total very often, but he is on pace for 48 homers and 102 RBI this year, so he can be worth paying up for at FantasyScore when he draws a favorable pitching matchup.

Angels | Albert Pujols will start

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 15:41:06 -0700

Updating a previous story, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have revised their lineup for Tuesday, July 21, against the Minnesota Twins. 1B Albert Pujols will start and hit third in the order, SS Erick Aybar will bat fourth and 2B Grant Green comes out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) will lose his off day due to the late scratching of OF Mike Trout. Pujols has fared much better against right-handed pitching this season, and FantasyScore owners can freely use him against RHP Kyle Gibson of the Twins.

Angels | Albert Pujols resting Tuesday

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 15:36:02 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols is receiving a rest day Tuesday, July 21, against the Minnesota Twins. 2B Grant Green comes into the lineup as the corresponding roster move, he'll bat eighth in the order against RHP Kyle Gibson.

Fantasy Tip: Green ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is hitting just .267 against righties this season, and he doesn't have a single extra-base hit. FantasyScore owners should stay clear.

Angels | Albert Pujols belts three homers

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 22:39:02 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols belted two home runs Monday, July 20, against the Boston Red Sox in Game 2 of a doubleheader, and he also hit one in Game 1. He moved past Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt into 15th place on the all-time Major League Baseball home runs list. Pujols also passed Hall of Famer Ty Cobb for 12th place in baseball history with his 1,137th extra-base hit.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($6,000; or 12.0% of cap) made FantasyScore owners smile with his performance in the nightcap, and he remains a must-start until he cools off considerably.

Angels | Albert Pujols hits homer No. 547

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 15:11:08 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols hit his 547th career home run Monday, July 20, in Game 1 of the doubleheader against the Boston Red Sox. Pujols needs one more homer to tie Mike Schmidt for 15th on the all-time list.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is up to 27 homers on the season, just one back of last year's total. Pujols' .271 ISO is the highest it's been in five seasons, but it also matches his career average. Owners should be refusing to sell Pujols, as he projects to be even more of an asset when his low .216 BABIP starts trending towards his career rate of .299.

Angels | Albert Pujols to compete in derby

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 15:44:04 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols will compete in the 2015 All-Star Home Run Derby. It will be Pujols' fourth time participating in the event.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is on pace to challenge his career high of 49 home runs. Season-long owners generally don't want to see their hitters take part in the derby for fear of it messing with their swing but there's not much reason to fear it affecting a veteran like Pujols.

Angels | Albert Pujols reaches 25 homers

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 04:37:05 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols hit his 25th homer of the season Sunday, July 5, in a 12-6 win over the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) may be the replacement for Miguel Cabrera on the All-Star Game roster, and if so he certainly put on a good audition like he has all season. He remains a worthy start in FantasyScore.

Angels | Albert Pujols open to HR derby

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 09:29:46 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols told reporters on Monday, June 29, that if he makes the All Star team he would like to participate in the Home Run Derby so that his son AJ can watch him compete. He has participated three times, finishing second, tied for third and fourth. Pujols said that this would likely be his last one. Pujols has 23 home runs, fifth in baseball, entering Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($6,000, 12% of cap) dismissed the idea that participating in the Home Run Derby hurts a players swing or impacts their second half performance, but it is something we have seen before. Pujols is a strong daily game player on FantasyScore at his current price. Pujols is a sell high candidate for a variety of reasons, but owners shouldn't be selling for fear of the "home run derby curse."

Angels | Albert Pujols moves up all-time list

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 22:23:19 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols went 1-for-4 with a double and RBI Monday, June 29, against the New York Yankees. He tied Tris Speaker for 13th place on the career extra-base hits list with 1,131.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($6,000; or 12.0% of cap) has looked a lot like himself lately after struggling with foot issues for most of 2014. He has re-emerged as a must-start FantasyScore option this season. He has 25 RBIs in the month of June.

Angels | Matt Joyce will not start

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 15:35:20 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Monday, June 29. 1B Albert Pujols will serve as the designated hitter and is batting fourth, while 1B C.J. Cron will start at first base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Cron recently rejoined the team but probably is not a great option for fantasy owners at this point.
