Angels | Johnny Giavotella takes a seat

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:10:20 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. 2B Gregorio Petit is starting at the keystone and is hitting ninth against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers.

Fantasy Tip: It's likely a normal day of rest for Giavotella. Petit is hitting .281 on the year but has limited offensive skills with only two home runs and 15 RBI in 128 at-bats. He's also never stolen a base in his five-year career. Ignore him everywhere.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs ready for the majors?

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:06:49 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (elbow) could be activated from the disabled list to start as soon as Sunday, July 24, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: It would be wise to take a wait-and-see approach with Skaggs outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, but he did post a 2.51 ERA with 45 strikeouts over 32 1/3 innings through seven starts with Class AAA Salt Lake. There is some upside and Skaggs is a hurler to watch.

Astros | Evan Gattis sitting vs. Angels

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 14:50:40 -0700

Houston Astros C Evan Gattis (hand) is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22, because his right hand is still swollen. C Jason Castro is starting behind the plate and batting ninth, and OF Preston Tucker is batting eighth as the designated hitter against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis' fantasy value is tied to his power and eligibility at catcher, and with 13 home runs and 36 RBI in just 69 games, he's delivering. Expect Gattis to be back in the lineup soon. Castro is seeing enough playing time to remain a low-end starter in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues and has 31 runs, six home runs and 22 RBI for the campaign. Tucker is nothing more than a desperation start in all fantasy formats given his .566 OPS this season.

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 | Jefry Marte homers in win

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 00:08:59 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Jefry Marte hit a three-run homer Wednesday, July 20, in a 7-4 win over the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: With C.J. Cron (hand) on the disabled list until at least early September, players like Marte will get an audition at first base while Albert Pujols is a designated hitter. With Ji-Man Choi also in the mix, first could be a very entertaining position in Anaheim this summer. Marte is best played in DFS formats due to the sporadic nature of when he starts.

Angels | Yunel Escobar continues to rake

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 22:30:57 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Yunel Escobar went 2-for-4 with a run scored and two RBIs Wednesday, July 20, against the Texas rangers to push his average to .317.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar continues to do a good job setting the table at the top of Mike Scioscia's lineup, posting his seventh multi-hit game in 15 games in the month of July. He remains a must-start fantasy option in all AL-only leagues, most mixed formats and DFS play.

Angels | Hector Santiago does enough for win

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 22:30:35 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago allowed three earned runs, five hits and three walks with three strikeouts over five innings in a win Wednesday, July 20, against the Texas Rangers. He threw 63 of his 100 pitches for strikes in the quality start.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the win, Santiago has been way more impressive on the road than at home. He is 4-2 with a 5.82 ERA with 12 home runs allowed in 51 innings at the Big A, while going 4-2 with a 3.03 ERA in 10 road outings, posting a .217 opponent batting average with just six homers allowed in 59 1/3 innings. Fantasy owners and DFS players need to remember those splits.

Angels | Ji-Man Choi not playing Wednesday

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 15:25:59 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Ji-Man Choi is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. 3B Jefry Marte is playing first base and is batting fifth against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez.

Fantasy Tip: Marte should only be owned in the deepest of AL-only leagues for bench depth, as he's batting just .224 (24-for-107) with five home runs and 14 RBI. He doesn't play much, either, and that's really saying something considering the Angels have one of the thinnest rosters in the majors due to injuries.

Rangers | Kyle Lohse gets ripped by Angels

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 22:51:17 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Kyle Lohse gave up seven runs on six hits in 4 1/3 innings against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Tuesday, July 19. He walked three and failed to register a strikeout.

Fantasy Tip: Lohse was even worse against the Rangers than he was in his 2016 debut versus the Twins. Don't let the veteran anywhere near your fantasy roster.

Angels | Tim Lincecum secures second win

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 22:27:41 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tim Lincecum allowed five runs -- three earned -- on nine hits in five innings against the Texas Rangers on Tuesday, July 19. He walked two and struck out seven.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum was far from dominant against the Rangers, but he worked his way out of trouble and did enough to win for the first time since his 2016 debut on June 18. That being said, he once again posted a WHIP above 2.00 and did little to quell doubts about his future in the rotation. Lincecum is speculative AL-only fodder at best right now.

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.

Angels | Huston Street secures save

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 21:28:35 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Huston Street secured his eighth save of the season against the Texas Rangers Tuesday, July 19, and his first since June 14.

Fantasy Tip: Not only is Street injury-prone, but he's sporting a 4.82 ERA, 1.87 WHIP and is fanning only 5.3 hitters per nine innings. Those numbers aren't very appealing to fantasy owners, and on top of it, the Angels aren't giving Street many opportunities to close out games. Street is a low-end fantasy closer.

Angels | Geovany Soto expects to be back soon

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 17:14:47 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Geovany Soto (knee) expects to activated from the 15-day disabled list when he is first eligible. An MRI on Soto's knee showed inflammation but no structural damage.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Soto suffers any setback before he is able to return. He is hitting .284 with three home runs and eight RBI this season and is a decent option in two-catcher leagues when he plays again.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella sitting out

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 16:57:25 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Kyle Lohse Tuesday, July 19. 2B Gregorio Petit will start at second base and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Petit is hitting .282 in his limited playing time this season and has five hits in 15 at-bats this month. He can be an option in some daily fantasy leagues, but owners in most leagues should be able to find better options.

Angels | Nick Tropeano has significant injury

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 15:49:17 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Nick Tropeano (elbow) has a medium- to high-grade ulnar collateral ligament tear in his elbow. He will have a second opinion on the elbow but likely will need Tommy John surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Trepeano likely will miss the rest of this season and probably will miss a majority of the 2017 season if he undergoes surgery. Owners on all leagues should avoid him until he is able to pitch again.
