Angels | David DeJesus out of Sunday lineup

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 12:02:48 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF David DeJesus is not in the lineup Sunday, Aug. 2, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. OF David Murphy is in left field.

Fantasy Tip: DeJesus ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) projects as a platoon outfielder, but the absence of a DH most likely played a role in this. Because the game is at Dodger Stadium, pitcher Cory Rasmus is in the bottom spot. DeJesus should be back in a day or two, but keep an eye on his playing time.

Angels | C.J. Wilson out for season?

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 11:05:03 -0700

Updating a previous report, MRI results for Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP C.J. Wilson (elbow) show a left elbow impingement secondary to arthritis. He is expected to undergo surgery to clean out bone spurs from his elbow which have caused diminished range of motion and increased risk of shoulder injury. The procedure could end his season prematurely but Wilson expects to be able to pitch effectively in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson's ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) injury means that Matt Shoemaker ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is likely to retain his spot in the Angels' starting rotation after Jered Weaver (hip) is activated from the disabled list. He went 8-8 with a 3.89 ERA in 21 starts this season, with his lowest WHIP (1.242) since 2011. He can be dropped in redraft leagues.

Angels | Taylor Featherston starting Saturday

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 10:52:21 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Taylor Featherston will bat eighth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw Saturday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: This is not a great matchup for Featherston ($1,600, 3.2% of cap), who is hitting just .200 with three RBIs in 20 at-bats this season against southpaws and just .139 overall. FantasyScore owners should be able to find better options.

Angels | Carlos Perez catching Sunday

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 10:40:53 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Carlos Perez will bat sixth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw Saturday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: C Chris Iannetta ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is receiving a scheduled day off. Perez ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is only batting .200 (7-for-35) versus lefties this season and is facing one of the most dominant hurlers in the game, so he should be avoided in FantasyScore today.

Angels | David DeJesus starting in left field

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 10:38:26 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF David DeJesus is batting seventh and playing left field against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw Saturday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: DeJesus ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is batting .338 during day games this year but is only 1-for-8 against lefties and has never faced Kershaw in his career. Avoid using him in FantasyScore this afternoon.

Angels | Shane Victorino playing right field

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 10:23:30 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Shane Victorino is leading off and playing right field against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw Saturday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is batting .316 versus lefties with a home run and two RBIs in 38 at-bats this season and is 4-for-18 against Kershaw in his career with a double, home run and two RBIs. FantasyScore owners looking for an inexpensive outfielder may want to consider him today.

Angels | Mike Trout provides the offense

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 05:46:55 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout went 3-for-4 with a run, a triple, a home run and three RBI during the Angels' 5-3 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Trout ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) leads the American League is runs (76), home runs (32), slugging percentage (.642), OPS (1.049) and total bases (235). He is worth considering nightly at FantasyScore, but especially in favorable matchups.

Angels | Dodgers beat around Hector Santiago

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 05:33:52 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago allowed five earned runs on nine hits and a walk during the Angels' 5-3 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: There has been a lot more good than bad for Santiago ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) this season, but he has now allowed nine runs -- eight earned -- over his past two starts, which is the same amount as he allowed through his previous seven outings. Fantasy owners shouldn't make any hasty moves or jump to conclusions, but it wouldn't be out of the question to see Santiago regress slightly through the end of the year.

Angels | Jered Weaver to make rehab start Tuesday

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 17:25:08 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (hip) is scheduled to make at least one more rehab start for Class A Inland Empire Tuesday, Aug. 4. He is expected to throw 70-80 pitches.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) was 4-8 with a 4.75 ERA in 15 starts before landing on the disabled list with a left hip injury. His decreased velocity has made him more dependent on hitting his spots to keep hitters off balance and he will be a risky play in FantasyScore when he returns to action.

Angels | David Murphy playing left field

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 17:21:45 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF David Murphy will bat fifth and start in left field against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: This could be a sign that manager Mike Scioscia prefers using Murphy ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) in left field versus right-handers, as opposed to David DeJesus ($3,600, 7.2% of cap), who is not in the lineup. Murphy is 4-for-16 in his career against Greinke and FantasyScore owners searching for cap relief should consider him for their lineups.

Angels | Jered Weaver close to returning

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 16:02:50 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (hip) feels ready to go and said "he's not that far off" with his mechanics in his delivery. Weaver will throw a bullpen session Saturday, Aug. 1, and then decide when he will return from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: C.J. Wilson was put on the disabled list today by the Angels, so Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) figures to take his rotation spot as soon as next week. Weaver has been extremely disappointing for his fantasy owners this year, though, posting a 4.75 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and just 4.6 strikeouts per nine innings with decreased fastball velocity. He's unlikely to make drastic adjustments to turn things around in the dominance department, though, so he'll remain a shaky matchup play on FantasyScore.

Angels | C.J. Wilson lands on disabled list

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 14:00:51 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP C.J. Wilson (elbow) was placed on the disabled list with inflammation in his left elbow Friday, July 31. In a corresponding move, the Angels recalled SP Drew Rucinski from Class AAA Salt Lake.

Fantasy Tip: Check back for an update on whether Rucinski will start. It seems unlikely because he has really struggled with Salt Lake and the Angels. Plus, Jered Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is returning from a hip injury soon, so he could rejoin the rotation in Wilson's spot. Stay tuned for further updates on the severity of Wilson's injury and how long he projects to be out, too.

Angels | Halos talking Yoenis Cespedes

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 11:10:38 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes is being discussed by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is a hot topic as the trade deadline quickly approaches with the Tigers looking to sell on this season. Even though the Angels' home ballpark is more of a pitcher's park, Cespedes' fantasy value is unlikely to change all that much if he lands in the American League West.

Angels | Taylor Featherston gets rare start at 3B

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 15:52:58 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Taylor Featherston is in the lineup Thursday, July 30, making the start at third base and facing Houston Astros SP Scott Kazmir.

Fantasy Tip: Since David Freese landed on the disabled list, Conor Gillaspie has received the bulk of the playing time at the hot corner, and has earned his playing time with some relatively solid numbers. The same cannot be said for Featherston ($1,600, 3.2% of cap), though, who rarely gets a start, which might have something to do with his ugly .143/.187/.229 batting line. In other words, there's nothing to see here as it regards to fantasy.

Angels | Mike Trout returns to lineup

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 15:51:25 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout (wrist) is back in the lineup against Houston Astros SP Scott Kazmir Thursday, July 30, after missing the previous two games. He's returned to his normal spot in the batting order hitting third.

Fantasy Tip: This is a no-brainer. Trout ($6,500, 13.0% of cap), the general consensus best player in baseball, should be restored in all fantasy starting lineups immediately. He's also tasked with facing a left-hander this evening, and Trout has actually been better against lefties compared to righties, posting a remarkable .329/.406/.659 slash line against southpaws this season.
