Angels | Garrett Richards won't make Friday start

Thu, 05 May 2016 15:10:39 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (dehydration) has been scratched from his scheduled start against the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, May 6. RP Cory Rasmus will receive the start.

Fantasy Tip: It's a bummer for Richards and his fantasy owners in what was a plus matchup. Keep an eye on how he progresses from his illness and be ready to plug him back in if he can make a start next week. Rasmus is a reliever and should be avoided everywhere. All Tampa hitters will be attractive in daily formats Friday night.

Angels | Garrett Richards taking it day-to-day

Wed, 04 May 2016 17:06:59 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (dehydration) said he is still fatigued and does not feel "crisp." He and the organization are taking a day-by-day approach to his scheduled start against the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, May 6.

"I'm just trying to take it day by day," Richards said. "Stay on top of it, stay hydrated, try to bounce back. Everything just kind of doesn't feel crisp right now. We're going to re-evaluate tomorrow and go from there."

Fantasy Tip: It would be wise to prepare to be without Richards Friday, and he should be viewed as a risky start if he's able to take the hill, especially in daily contests. Richards has been excellent to start the season with a 2.34 ERA and 8.8 K/9, so expect the wins to begin piling up once he's returned to full health.

Angels | Mike Trout does damage Wednesday

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:50:34 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout launched his seventh home run of the season Wednesday, May 4, opposite the Milwaukee Brewers. He finished the day 2-for-4 with a run scored and two RBI. He also added a triple and a walk.

Fantasy Tip: It's funny to think people were actually concerned when Trout carried a .220 batting average going into April 20. He's now up to .317 only a couple weeks later, and also has 22 RBI to go with those seven home runs. Trout should continue to be one of the best players in the game as the season wears on.

Angels | Hector Santiago not good in Milwaukee

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:42:49 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago failed to escape the sixth inning for a second consecutive start Wednesday, May 4, against the Milwaukee Brewers. He lasted 5 1/3 innings, allowing three runs on eight hits and four walks, while striking out four, en route to picking up the no-decision.

Fantasy Tip: One of Santiago's strengths in fantasy is his ability to get strikeouts. However, after logging seven or more K's in three of his first four starts, he's now compiled only five punch-outs in his last two assignments combined. Santiago was an All-Star last year, and still has a respectable 3.58 ERA, so he should get back on track at some point.

Angels | Andrew Heaney has injection

Wed, 04 May 2016 11:22:23 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney (forearm) recently received a platelet-rich plasma injection that will keep him from playing catch at least until the middle of June.

Fantasy Tip: Heaney is facing a lost season, and there's still a chance he could need Tommy John surgery if rest and rehab doesn't work. At this point, you can drop him in most fantasy leagues in favor of healthy and productive starting arms. Heaney's injury, as well as a lack of depth for the rotation in Anaheim, could allow Nick Tropeano to stick all season long.

Angels | Garrett Richards dealing with dehydration

Wed, 04 May 2016 09:50:06 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards (dehydration) left his last start early due to dehydration, and it's not a sure thing that he'll make his next start against the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, May 6. Richards skipped his normal bullpen session between his starts as a precaution. The Angels will evaluate him after he throws on flat ground. Richards hasn't seen any doctors or taken any MRI exams. Los Angeles would most likely use the bullpen if Richards can't start Friday. SP Matt Shoemaker, who was sent to the minors, is unlikely to be an option.

Fantasy Tip: Despite being 1-3, Richards has pitched well with a 2.34 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 8.8 strikeouts per nine innings. Because of his condition this week, you'll want to be extremely cautious in deploying him if he pitches against the Rays later this week.

Angels | C.J. Cron out again

Wed, 04 May 2016 07:55:53 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 4, with 1B Albert Pujols hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: AP has played first base in all three games in Milwaukee, which shouldn't come as a surprise. Pujols has played eight games at first, which means he only needs two more to keep 1B eligibility next year in a lot of formats. His .204-6-17 line is rather average, but he's hitting .304 the last seven days, and he's an upper-middle option against Zach Davies.

Angels | Mike Trout carrying team

Tue, 03 May 2016 23:23:35 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout has 16 RBI in his last 12 games.

Fantasy Tip: Trout has a .310-6-20 line on the season with two steals. He continues to be an elite option everywhere.

Angels | C.J. Cron out again Tuesday

Tue, 03 May 2016 14:47:50 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron is out of the starting lineup for the second straight day Tuesday, May 3, in a National League park.

Fantasy Tip: Cron has been slow out of the gates in the first month, hitting .240 (18-for-75) with one home run and seven RBI, and he should really only be owned in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Expect him to return to the lineup when the Halos return to an AL park.

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.
