Angels | Halos to attend Tim Lincecum showcase

Mon, 02 May 2016 23:24:46 -0700

Free-agent SP Tim Lincecum (Giants) will throw in front of scouts Friday, May 6, in Arizona, and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim will be one of the teams in attendance.

Fantasy Tip: It would be interesting to see if Lincecum can re-gain his form. A move to the American League might help to keep batters off balance since they're not as familiar with his stuff as NL teams. Stay tuned.

Angels | Nick Tropeano looks to stay hot

Mon, 02 May 2016 22:30:08 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Nick Tropeano will face the Milwaukee Brewers Tuesday, May 3. He has allowed two runs or less in each of his four starts this season.

Fantasy Tip: Tropeano has emerged as a must-start in all AL-only fantasy leagues, some deeper mixed formats and as a steal in DFS play due to his mid-tier price tag and overall solid performance.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs shut down for a week

Mon, 02 May 2016 21:43:16 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (biceps) returned to Southern California to have an MRI. He is dealing with biceps tendinitis, and will not throw for a week before being re-evaluated.

Fantasy Tip: Skaggs had been dealing with tightness in his shoulder recently, and now this. He is only worth a look in AL fantasy play and deeper mixed formats when healthy.

Angels | Daniel Nava back this weekend?

Mon, 02 May 2016 16:21:05 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Daniel Nava (knee) will begin his rehab assignment with Class A Inland Empire Monday, May 2, and he could be ready to come off the disabled list this weekend. He's expected to resume his role as the starting left fielder against right-handed pitchers. OF Rafael Ortega or 1B Ji-Man Choi are the options to be sent down when Nava returns. Choi, a Rule 5 pick, can't be optioned or the Angels will lose him.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Nava is guaranteed to return to the strong side of a platoon when he's ready since the Angels don't have any better options. The bad news is that Nava doesn't help fantasy owners very much in any one particular category. He's strictly AL-only fodder for outfield depth.

Angels | There is still a LAA catcher platoon

Mon, 02 May 2016 15:22:36 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Geovany Soto has started three of the past four games after C Carlos Perez started 15 of the first 22 outings, but manager Mike Scioscia still says the two catchers will split time behind the plate.

"I don't think the depth chart has changed," Scioscia said Monday, May 2. "Nothing has changed since we talked in the spring. We're going to need both of these guys. The playing time will certainly be split on performance, behind the plate and at the plate, primarily behind the plate."

Fantasy Tip: There is a stark difference offensively, as Soto is hitting .344 to start the season and Perez owns a .148 batting average. Clearly, neither backstop is going to run away with all the starts, but in the immediate future, Soto is the best fantasy asset. He is worth a look in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only formats as a low-end option.

Angels | Geovany Soto draws another start

Mon, 02 May 2016 12:50:25 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Geovany Soto is batting seventh against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson Monday, May 2. C Carlos Perez is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Soto has started three of the past four games behind the dish for the Angels, and he has a rock-solid .344/.382/.656 slash line through 35 at-bats with six runs, three home runs and seven RBI to start the season. The veteran backstop appears to be earning more playing time, which makes Soto a potential add in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only formats.

Angels | C.J. Cron sitting vs. Brewers

Mon, 02 May 2016 12:42:40 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron is not in the starting lineup against the Milwaukee Brewers Monday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: With the Angels visiting Milwaukee, Cron draws out of the lineup without the ability to utilize him or Albert Pujols as the designated hitter. Cron is off to a rough start, too. He has just six runs, a home run, six RBI and an underwhelming .230/.313/.311 slash line through 83 plate appearances. At this stage, Cron is a fringe own outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only formats.

Angels | Craig Gentry on the DL

Mon, 02 May 2016 10:14:02 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Craig Gentry (back) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, May 1, with a right lumbar spine strain. OF Shane Robinson was called up from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Robinson is expected to share time in left field with Rafael Ortega with Gentry sidelined. The 5-9 outfielder has only five career home runs in seven years in the majors and won't offer fantasy owners much even with his new opportunity. Save him for the most cavernous AL-only leagues if you're hurting for a warm body.

Angels | Three Angels not in the lineup

Sun, 01 May 2016 11:13:13 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Rafael Ortega, C Carlos Perez and 2B Johnny Giavotella are not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels Sunday, May 1. C Geovany Soto will start at catcher and is batting sixth in the lineup. OF Shane Robinson will start in left field and is batting eighth, while SS Cliff Pennington will start at second base and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Soto has at least one hit in six of his last seven starts and has six RBI during that span. Soto could be used in two-catcher leagues. Owners should avoid using Pennington and Robinson for the time being.

Angels | Daniel Nava to head out for rehab soon

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 23:47:43 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Daniel Nava (knee) is eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list Sunday, May 1, as he is nearly recovered after a bout of left patellar tendinitis. He might start getting some at-bats in a minor-league rehab assignment sometime next week.

Fantasy Tip: Avoid Nava in AL-only fantasy leagues and DFS play until he can officially return, knock off the rust and prove his health in a full game or two without any setbacks.

Angels | Craig Gentry nursing stiff back

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 23:47:15 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Craig Gentry (back) was unavailable Saturday, April 30, against the Texas Rangers due to a stiff back.

Fantasy Tip: Gentry is considered day to day. When healthy he is only worth a look in the deepest of AL-only fantasy play.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker gets knocked around

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 23:46:44 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker allowed seven runs over just 2 1/3 innings Saturday, April 30, against the Texas Rangers while recording just one strikeout.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker has been touched for 13 runs in just 5 1/3 innings in two outings against Texas this season. Remember that, and avoid him in DFS play and most fantasy formats the next time these clubs square off.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella hitting second

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 14:04:26 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella is hitting second Saturday, April 30, with OF Rafael Ortega down to ninth against a left-hander.

Fantasy Tip: Giavotella has hit better of late with four hits, including a homer, in 10 at-bats the last week. He only hit .234 against lefties the previous three years, but he should see some pitches to hit ahead of Mike Trout. He's a decent option if you're looking for a basement flyer against Derek Holland. Ortega is hitting .368 the last seven days, but he hasn't faced a lefty this year. Hold off on him tonight.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs suffers setback

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 10:34:56 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (shoulder, elbow) will travel to Los Angeles to get evaluated by the club Monday, May 2, because he has been experiencing tightness in his throwing shoulder recently.

Fantasy Tip: Skaggs had been scheduled to make a rehab start Monday, but he hasn't thrown off a mound since doing a bullpen session Wednesday, April 27. Owners in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues should continue to stash him on their rosters and should have a better idea of his timetable to return to action following Monday's exam.

Angels | Mike Trout on nine-game run

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 21:48:19 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout had a single and double Friday, April 29, to extend his hitting streak to nine games. He has also reached base safely in 15 consecutive outings.

Fantasy Tip: Trout is simply doing what fantasy owners expect. He is hitting .438 with four homers and nine RBIs with six runs scored during the impressive nine-game run.
