Angels | C.J. Wilson to return during road trip

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 14:17:32 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP C.J. Wilson (ankle) tossed 5 1/3 innings in his first rehab outing with Double-A Arkansas Monday, July 28, and he is expected to return to the team during the current road trip.

Fantasy Tip: The Halos will likely want Wilson to make another rehab start before he returns to the rotation. If he doesn't have any setbacks, Wilson could return early next week. His return will probably push Hector Santiago back into a relief role.

Angels | Josh Hamilton needs better zone control

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 13:09:51 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Josh Hamilton is hitting .391 on pitches in the middle zone vertically, which is 100 points above the league average. When a pitch is either up or down he is hitting .243, though. Hamilton is swinging at 37 percent of pitches he has seen out of the strike zone. As a result, pitchers are throwing 60 percent of their pitches to Hamilton outside the strike zone.

Fantasy Tip: Clearly, coaches and pitchers have a plan to attack a weakness Hamilton has to his approach at the plate. Hamilton and the Angels' coaching staff will begin to make adjustments. Don't expect significant improvement, but Hamilton will likely try adopt a more selective approach at the plate, which can only help him going forward.

Angels | Josh Hamilton eaten up by the curveball

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 13:00:24 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Josh Hamilton is batting .200 against curveballs this season. The league average is .247. Hamilton has missed on 49 percent of his swings against curveballs.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Hamilton to begin correcting to the norm. Connecting with a few more curveballs could help his counting stats, but he is unlikely improve drastically enough to help his batting average.

Angels | Josh Hamilton lacking pop

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 12:48:45 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Josh Hamilton has three home runs in 45 games since returning from the disabled list Tuesday, June 3. Hamilton tore a ligament in his left thumb sliding into first base, and the injury could be lingering and impacting his power.

Fantasy Tip: Hand injuries can be disastrous for hitters, especially concerning their power potential. Hamilton hits in a potent lineup, and he should show more pop as the season continues, though. He is a buy-low candidate.

Angels | C.J. Wilson update

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 11:47:10 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP C.J. Wilson (ankle) threw a 60-pitch bullpen session Wednesday, July 23, that manager Mike Scioscia said went "really well." Wilson threw four innings' worth of up-and-down action with simulated breaks in activity. He's expected to log another session Friday, July 25, or Saturday, July 26, and may need a rehab start.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson should return in the next few weeks to being a matchup-based decision for most mixed leaguers.

Angels | Josh Hamilton facing historic amount of breaking pitches

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 11:15:25 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Josh Hamilton is seeing more breaking pitches than at any other time in his career. According to Fangraphs, only 35.5 percent of the pitches Hamilton has seen in 2014 have been fastballs. It appears to be the lowest percentage recorded by PITCHf/x data since it started collecting such data in 2002. The next lowest percentage is 44.6 of any other hitter with at least 100 at-bats. Hamilton has been more patient this season, but the more passive approach may be hurting him.

Fantasy Tip: Hitter of only five home runs, Hamilton still ranks as a decent buy-low candidate for the desperate, who should merely hope for an extreme regression to the positive when it comes to power. Hamilton's perceived name value is probably at an all-time low.

Angels | Grant Green to DL, C.J. Cron returns

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 15:29:10 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim INF Grant Green (back) was placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a lumbar strain. The Angels recalled 1B C.J. Cron from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Fantasy Tip: Cron immediately regains deep-mixed value. Green is stashable in cavernous games, notably AL-only atmospheres.
