Angels | Grant Green starting at first base

Thu, 28 May 2015 14:45:53 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Grant Green is batting eighth and starting at first base against the Detroit Tigers Thursday, May 28.

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.

Angels | Kirk Nieuwenhuis coming up?

Thu, 28 May 2015 10:33:06 -0700

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.

Angels | Marc Krauss likely to be optioned

Thu, 28 May 2015 06:58:27 -0700

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.

Angels | Collin Cowgill may go on DL

Wed, 27 May 2015 18:28:38 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Collin Cowgill (hand) could be headed for a stint on the disabled list, if he doesn't turn the corner, according to manager Mike Scioscia Wednesday, May 27.

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.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella still the starter

Wed, 27 May 2015 16:30:32 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella will still see most of the playing time at second base, but 2B Grant Green will occasionally mix in, according to manager Mike Scioscia.

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.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella resting

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.

Angels | Chris Iannetta serving as DH

Wed, 27 May 2015 15:14:59 -0700

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.

Padres | Austin Hedges starting against Angels

Wed, 27 May 2015 14:57:52 -0700

San Diego Padres C Austin Hedges is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Wednesday, May 27.

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.

Angels | Chris Iannetta draws into lineup

Tue, 26 May 2015 16:57:14 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Chris Iannetta will start at catcher and bat eighth in the order Tuesday, May 26, against the San Diego Padres.

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.

Angels | C.J. Cron sent down

Tue, 26 May 2015 09:47:06 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron was optioned to Class AAA Salt Lake Tuesday, May 26.

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.

Angels | Collin Cowgill out of starting lineup Monday

Tue, 26 May 2015 04:50:08 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Collin Cowgill (hand) did not start Monday, May 25, due to pain in his right hand. Cowgill did pinch-hit later in the game.

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.

Angels | Heavy workload for Hector Santiago

Sun, 24 May 2015 19:38:49 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago threw a career-high 124 pitches in a 6-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox Sunday, May 24. He allowed three runs on seven hits in 6 2/3 innings.

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.

Angels | Collin Cowgill scratched

Sun, 24 May 2015 10:23:28 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Collin Cowgill (undisclosed) was scratched from the starting lineup Sunday, May 24. OF Matt Joyce will take his place in the lineup.

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.

Angels | Collin Cowgill starting in LF

Sun, 24 May 2015 09:34:39 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Collin Cowgill will be the starting left fielder against the Boston Red Sox Sunday, May 24.

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.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella sitting out

Sun, 24 May 2015 09:26:36 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 24. 2B Taylor Featherston will take his place in the lineup.

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.
