Fantasy Tip: Green only has nine plate appearances this season and two home runs over 265 career plate appearances. He is nothing more than a desperation flier in all fantasy formats.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis is expected to be called up from the minors Thursday, May 28, after the team traded for him Wednesday, May 27. He is likely to start in left field against right-handed pitchers, with OF Matt Joyce serving as the designated hitter. 2B Grant Green or OF Alfredo Marte could start in left field against lefties.
Fantasy Tip: Nieuwenhuis ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) had just three hits in 38 at-bats (.079) with the New York Mets before being traded to the west coast. His value will be limited to deep AL-only leagues with increased playing time with a new team. Avoid him for now at FantasyScore.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim DH Marc Krauss is expected to be optioned to Class AAA Salt Lake Thursday, May 28. He was seen packing up his locker after the Angels' 5-4 loss to the San Diego Padres Tuesday, May 27. In a corresponding move, Angels OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis is expected to replace him on the active roster.
Fantasy Tip: Krauss is a fringe player and had only spot-play worth in daily action, so this isn't exactly an earth-shattering move.

Fantasy Tip: Cowgill ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) could be replaced by the recently acquired Kirk Nieuwenhuis. Whether or not he gets regular playing time, Nieuwenhuis should be avoided on FantasyScore, until he proves his worth.

Fantasy Tip: Giavotella ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is hitting just .211 (16-for-76) with five RBI in May after coming out hot in April after winning the job in spring training. He won't be very valuable at FantasyScore for the rest of the year, aside from being a deep sleeper option that can save you money on the rest of your lineup.
Wed, 27 May 2015 15:23:04 -0700
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 27. 2B Grant Green is starting at the keystone and hitting ninth in the batting order against San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner.
Fantasy Tip: Green ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will be mainly used for infield depth by the Angels, and he'll likely be an afterthought at FantasyScore, especially while hitting at the bottom of the order.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Chris Iannetta is serving as the designated hitter and hitting seventh in the batting order against San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner Wednesday, May 27. 1B Marc Krauss is starting on the bench.
Fantasy Tip: Iannetta ($2,300, 4.6% of cap), despite recently breaking a long slump, is still hitting only .161 (15-for-93) on the season, with two home runs and nine RBI. There's nothing that says to trust Iannetta against Cashner, who has been solid despite nothing to show for it in the win column in 2015.
Wed, 27 May 2015 14:57:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has only received 16 plate appearances this season, so he should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief by FantasyScore players Wednesday.
Tue, 26 May 2015 16:57:14 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Iannetta ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is just 1-for-11 since his four-game hitting streak ended. Iannetta hit a three-run homer in his second-last game but it was his only hit in three outings. FantasyScore owners can consider Iannetta for GPP tournaments, as he goes up against Odrisamer Despaigne of the Padres.
Tue, 26 May 2015 09:47:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cron was hitting only .204 (20-for-98) with one home run and six RBI on the year and had only been hitting against left-handed pitchers. His demotion means Marc Krauss ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) should continue to serve as the main designated hitter. He's only relevant in deep AL-only leagues, and he's a weak FantasyScore option for his power stroke.
Tue, 26 May 2015 04:50:08 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cowgill ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) appears to be shaking off the after-effects of his injury, but he may not quite be 100 percent yet. Keep an eye on his status.
Sun, 24 May 2015 19:38:49 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Santiago ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has allowed one earned run or less in six of his nine starts this season and has allowed more than three runs only once. However, he threw a ton of pitches Sunday, and you may want to avoid him in his next start to make sure he doesn't have any arm fatigue.
Sun, 24 May 2015 10:23:28 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see when Cowgill ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) will be able to return. Joyce ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has also been struggling at the plate and probably should be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.
Sun, 24 May 2015 09:34:39 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cowgill ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has struggled at the plate this season and has only four hits in 23 at-bats this month. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use in the outfield.
Sun, 24 May 2015 09:26:36 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Giavotella ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return soon. Featherston ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has only one hit in 20 at-bats this season and should not be considered by owners on FantasyScore.
