Angels | Albert Pujols back in lineup

Fri, 22 May 2015 15:09:24 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (hand) is back in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello Friday, May 22, after missing two days after taking a fastball off his left hand and wrist. He will attempt to return and hit through the pain in his hand.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is hitting only .231 (33-for-143) with seven home runs and 15 RBI on the year. It makes sense to avoid him tonight at FantasyScore against Porcello, who is 3-0 with a 2.10 ERA and 21 K's in 25 2/3 innings in his last four starts.

Angels | Albert Pujols hopes to return Friday

Thu, 21 May 2015 16:28:14 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (hand) hopes to return to the lineup Friday, May 22, after bruising his left hand while being hit by a pitch Wednesday, May 20. The swelling in his hand has reduced drastically, but he did not take batting practice Thursday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is hitting only .231 (33-for-143) with seven home runs and 15 RBI on the season. You should be cautious with him at FantasyScore tomorrow night and check to see if he's back in. He would be facing Boston Red Sox starter Rick Porcello Friday.

Angels | Albert Pujols injury causing lineup changes

Thu, 21 May 2015 12:46:02 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (wrist) is out with a wrist injury, and the lineup has shuffled as a result. The Angels moved OF Mike Trout to designated hitter and placed OF Collin Cowgill in center for the Thursday, May 21, game against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Trout ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) is a no-brainer to start. The real question is what to do with Cowgill ($2,100, 4.2% of cap). Cowgill won't likely start every game when Pujols is out or Trout serves as DH, but Cowgill should still be ignored with his .182 batting average in the last week.

Angels | Albert Pujols avoids a serious injury

Thu, 21 May 2015 08:26:31 -0700

Updating an ongoing report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols' (wrist) left wrist is not fractured, and he is only expected to miss a few days with the injury.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players will want to avoid Pujols ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) until he returns and proves his health, especially considering the nature of the injury and the potential for it to impact his hitting. Be patient in seasonal leagues, too, as there could be a lingering hindrance to his offensive production. Check back for updates on his status and who may replace him at first base. Marc Krauss and C.J. Cron ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) are candidates.

Angels | Albert Pujols day-to-day

Wed, 20 May 2015 22:37:39 -0700

Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (hand) is considered day-to-day because of his hand contusion but should be fine, according to general manager Jerry Dipoto.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) could miss a game or two but should be back in the starting lineup in the near future. He is only hitting .231 so far this season but could be a starting option against some matchups.

Angels | Albert Pujols left game

Wed, 20 May 2015 17:36:05 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (wrist) left the game Wednesday, May 20, against the Toronto Blue Jays. Pujols originally stayed in the game but he was replaced by 1B Marc Krauss for the next turn through the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Krauss ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) would benefit the most if Pujols were to miss any time. Krauss has opened the season with just one hit in his first 14 plate appearances. Not much is known about the extent of Pujols' injury, but Krauss won't be a viable option even with expanded playing time.

Angels | C.J. Cron not playing Tuesday

Tue, 12 May 2015 16:01:22 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF C.J. Cron is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 12. OF Marc Krauss is starting at first base and hitting ninth in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick. 1B Albert Pujols will serve as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Krauss ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has a good matchup against the struggling Kendrick, but his lineup position hurts his chances of coming through for you as a low-priced deep sleeper pick.

Angels | Albert Pujols homers in return

Sat, 02 May 2015 19:01:54 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (hamstring) returned to the lineup and went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 5-4 loss the San Francisco Giants Saturday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) now has four home runs on the year, but he is hitting just .210. Saturday's home run came off Tim Hudson, who Pujols entered hitting .438 against, and he is only worth chancing at FantasyScore when he draws favorable matchups.

Angels | Albert Pujols remains out Friday

Fri, 01 May 2015 15:46:01 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup again Friday, May 1. DH C.J. Cron is starting at first base and hitting sixth in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is day-to-day and is hoping to return to the lineup sometime this weekend. His absence continues the shakeup at the top of the lineup. Erick Aybar ($3,100, 6.2% of cap), Johnny Giavotella ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) continue to gain daily value while hitting at the top of the lineup, and Kole Calhoun ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is also more appealing hitting in the cleanup spot.
