Angels | Albert Pujols on fire

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 23:04:48 -0700

Angels | Grant Green playing first base Sunday

Sun, 31 May 2015 14:17:23 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Grant Green is playing first base Sunday, May 31, against the Detroit Tigers. 1B Albert Pujols is the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Green is hitting .111 in the last week, so the best bet here is to keep Green on your bench and use that money elsewhere.

Angels | Albert Pujols nursing sore groin

Sun, 31 May 2015 04:43:25 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (groin) was the team's designated hitter Saturday, May 30, against the Detroit Tigers due to a sore groin.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) homered in the contest, so the groin isn't too much of an issue for now when it comes to his hitting. Keep Pujols in mind as a solid lineup option.

Angels | Albert Pujols heating up

Sat, 30 May 2015 05:23:16 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols has a .326/.380/.652 slash line over his past 12 games with eight runs, four home runs and six RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is no longer the toast of his position, but when he is dialed in at the dish, he is still a solid source of fantasy production. At his reasonable FantasyScore salary, it is a good time to save cap room at first base by utilizing Pujols to spend up elsewhere, especially when Pujols lands in a plus-matchup.

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.
