Fantasy Tip: Heaney ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) earned his first win since July 26, putting an end to a six-game winless stretch. He will make his next start against the Los Angeles Dodgers Tuesday, Sept. 8.

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray allowed six runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out two batters through five innings during the Athletics' 9-4 loss to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Wednesday, Sept. 2.
Fantasy Tip: It was only the second time in 12 outings Gray ($9,500, 19.0% of cap) allowed more than three earned runs, as he continues to be a top-notch pitcher in all formats. It is worth being somewhat picky with who you start him against at FantasyScore, though, especially at his hefty salary.
Wed, 02 Sep 2015 16:25:25 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) entered the game with an underwhelming .212/.259/.343 slash line over his past 35 games and had been looking like he was slowing down. Don't rule out his struggles continuing, either. Still, the veteran has had an excellent season with 35 home runs and 80 RBI.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella (illness) is expected to re-join the team Friday, Sept. 4. Manager Mike Scioscia said little about Giavotella's progress, and it is uncertain if he will return to playing when he is back with the team.
Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players can avoid Giavotella ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) until he can officially return and prove his health in multiple games.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Grant Green is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 1. SS Taylor Featherstone is starting at the keystone and is batting ninth against Oakland Athletics SP Cody Martin.
Fantasy Tip: Even against a pitcher making his first start of the season in the big leagues, Featherston ($1,600, 3.2% of cap), who's hitting only .130 (12-for-92) with one home run, shouldn't be used on FantasyScore.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B David Freese (finger) was activated from the disabled list and is in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Cody Martin Tuesday, Sept. 1. Freese is hitting seventh in the batting order.
Fantasy Tip: Freese ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) should return to a regular role at the hot corner for the Halos, so look to add him in deeper mixed leagues if he's available and you're in need at a corner infield spot. Starting him on FantasyScore tonight would be an under-the-radar play in his first game back against a weaker starter.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker is 0-2 with a 7.85 ERA in four starts against the Oakland Athletics this season. He has only one win in six career games against the A's. Shoemaker is facing Oakland Tuesday, Sept. 1.
Fantasy Tip: The fact that Shoemaker ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has struggled against the A's this year and in general for the Angels could work in your favor as a sleeper pick on FantasyScore. He's also allowed frequent long balls, but he'll be in a park that suppresses homers, and he's coming off a solid outing against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Cron ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) typically slides into the four-hole against lefties, and he lands in a great matchup Monday. Cron owns a .324/.377/.549 slash line over his past 22 games with four home runs, and he is worth a long look as a value play at FantasyScore Monday.
Mon, 31 Aug 2015 15:48:13 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Victorino ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) lands in a great spot Monday, and he is worth considering at FantasyScore. He has been platooning with David Murphy ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) in left field with Victorino drawing in against lefties. Victorino owns a respectable .341 on-base percentage against them.

Fantasy Tip: Iannetta ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is just 6-for-40 (.150) with four RBIs at the plate this month and is hitting .188 for the season. Better low-priced catching options are available in FantasyScore today, so he should be avoided.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 19:05:48 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It's possible that Heaney ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) could have been on a pitch count during Friday's start to save wear and tear on his arm. He is scheduled to make his next start against the Oakland Athletics Wednesday, Sept. 2.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 18:08:58 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) had been sent down to Class AAA Salt Lake earlier in the month following a pair of ineffective starts but was dominant in his first game back Thursday. If he remains in the starting rotation, he could make his next outing against the Oakland Athletics next week.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 08:24:15 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cron ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has a .291-3-6 line in 86 at-bats against lefties and is a solid low-end buy on FantasyScore.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:19:48 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has flashed excellent form on the mound at times this season, but he allowed 13 runs over 7 1/3 innings during his past two starts. He cannot be started with confidence in any fantasy format at this point, as he is just 11 days removed from that horrible two-start showing. Plus, the Tigers are far from a pushover offensively.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 13:24:39 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) typically leads off against southpaws, and hitting atop of a potent lineup is a significant value boost for him. He is worth a look as a value play at FantasyScore Wednesday. Anthony Gose ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) shifts down to the nine-hole and his upside takes a hit.
