Angels | Halos interested in Ben Zobrist

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 06:12:35 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B/OF Ben Zobrist is a player the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have inquired about.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has turned it up by hitting .314 in his last 15 games. He's also making more frequent contact as he has struck out 18 times in 180 at-bats this year. He's a decent midrange 2B option on FantasyScore.

Angels | Halos tried trading for Josh Reddick

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 15:26:11 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick was a trade target of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim before general manager Jerry Dipoto resigned. The Angels even tried to get the Boston Red Sox involved in the potential deal.

Fantasy Tip: Reddick ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has been a very consistent performer for his fantasy owners this season. A trade could still happen before the deadline at the end of this month, and his value would likely rise with a trade away from pitcher-friendly O.co Coliseum.

Angels | Collin Cowgill delayed one week

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 04:49:50 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Collin Cowgill (wrist) will be shut down for at least one more week, according to manager Mike Scioscia.

Fantasy Tip: Cowgill ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) should be avoided on FantasyScore and in all other formats until he is healthy. However, Cowgill was hitting .180 at the time of the injury, so his effectiveness could be called into question and it is unknown how much playing time he will get upon returning.

Angels | Albert Pujols reaches 25 homers

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 04:37:05 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols hit his 25th homer of the season Sunday, July 5, in a 12-6 win over the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) may be the replacement for Miguel Cabrera on the All-Star Game roster, and if so he certainly put on a good audition like he has all season. He remains a worthy start in FantasyScore.

Angels | Jered Weaver throws 50

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 05:24:39 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (hip) threw more than 50 pitches in a bullpen session Saturday, July 4. Weaver didn't have any issues.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) hasn't pitched since June 20, and he had given up at least four earned runs in four consecutive starts before landing on the DL. FantasyScore owners will need to see a few impressive outings from Weaver before investing.

Angels | Hector Santiago dominates Rangers

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 05:17:31 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago improved to 5-0 with a 1.64 ERA in six career starts versus the Texas Rangers Saturday, July 4.

Fantasy Tip: Santiago ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has allowed one or zero runs in each of his last three starts. While Santiago's strikeout rate isn't overly impressive, he's allowed more than three runs in just two starts this season. Santiago will be worth FantasyScore consideration when he takes the mound Friday, July 10, against the Seattle Mariners.

Angels | C.J. Cron has career day

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 23:44:39 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron had three hits and a career-high six RBIs Saturday, July 4, in a 13-0 shutout of the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Cron was hitting .198 after Saturday's game, so that tells you how absent his bat has been this season. Leave his bat on the bench.

Angels | Daniel Robertson starting Saturday

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 15:04:19 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Daniel Robertson is starting in left field and hitting ninth in the order Saturday, July 4, against the Texas Rangers and LHP Wandy Rodriguez. OF Matt Joyce comes out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Robertson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) doesn't have a single extra-base hit in 31 plate appearances at the major league level this season, and he doesn't offer any upside while batting ninth.

Angels | Career first for Erick Aybar

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 21:15:42 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Erick Aybar had a career-high five hits in an 8-2 win over the Texas Rangers Friday, July 3, scoring twice and driving in a pair.

Fantasy Tip: Aybar ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been swinging the bat well in recent weeks, but he doesn't contribute much outside of runs scored. There are options available in the same price range at FantasyScore with a lot more upside.

Angels | Kole Calhoun drives in four

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 20:58:00 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Kole Calhoun went 2-for-5 with four RBI and a run scored in an 8-2 win over the Texas Rangers Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Calhoun ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has had an occasional big game, but for the most part, he has underwhelmed this season. At best, he is a roll-of-the-dice play at FantasyScore.

Angels | C.J. Cron starting at first base

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 14:03:37 -0700

Los Angeles Angels 1B C.J. Cron is starting at first base and batting eighth agaisnt Texas Rangers SP Alex Gonzalez Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Cron ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has a sub-.200 batting average and FantasyScore players will likely want to aim higher Friday. He is currently in a 7-for-49 slide, too.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker still winless at home

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 20:32:07 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker dropped to 0-6 at Angel Stadium this season, yielding seven hits and two runs while pitching into the sixth inning against the New York Yankees Wednesday, July 1

Fantasy Tip: Coming off a solid 2014 campaign, Shoemaker ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has seen his ERA rise and his strikeouts dip this season. He should only be considered at FantasyScore when facing the weakest of opponents.

Angels | Bill Stoneman to serve as interim GM?

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 17:55:53 -0700

Former Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim general manager Bill Stoneman is expected to be named the team's interim general manager, with Matt Klentak likely to remain as the assistant GM, according to a source. Stoneman held the position with the club from 2000 to 2007.

Fantasy Tip: This situation is unlikely to have much of an impact on fantasy baseball, unless Stoneman (or whoever takes over the GM position) begins dealing away high-priced veterans for prospects.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran sitting vs. Angels

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:43:02 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran (ribs) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 1. 1B Garrett Jones is playing right field and batting sixth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker has been teed off on this season and sports a 1.72 HR/9 and 14.7 percent HR/FB rate. Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) checks out as a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players, but just note, you're passing up a lot of upside utilizing him at first base.

Angels | Efren Navarro starting at 1B

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 12:16:53 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Efren Navarro is starting at first base and hitting ninth against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi Wednesday, July 1. 1B Albert Pujols is serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is limited offensively and no home runs and five RBI in 71 at-bats for the Halos this year. Consider him a low-end desperation play as a source of salary cap relief tonight.
