Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Geovany Soto (knee) expects to activated from the 15-day disabled list when he is first eligible. An MRI on Soto's knee showed inflammation but no structural damage.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Soto suffers any setback before he is able to return. He is hitting .284 with three home runs and eight RBI this season and is a decent option in two-catcher leagues when he plays again.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Geovany Soto (knee) was put on the 15-day disabled list with left knee inflammation Monday, July 18. C Juan Graterol was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Soto's knee is bothering him again. He's hit well when healthy for the Angels (.284-3-8), but he hasn't been able to stay on the field. Jett Bandy should continue to see the majority of starts behind the plate and is hitting .264 with two long balls and 12 RBI. He's a viable candidate for a roster spot in two-catcher and AL-only leagues. Ignore Graterol everywhere.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Geovany Soto (undisclosed) was scratched from the starting lineup Sunday, July 17, because of an undisclosed reason. C Jett Bandy will start at catcher.
Fantasy Tip: Bandy has at least one hit in four of his last five games but has only one RBI this month. Bandy can be considered in two-catcher leagues but does not have value in most mixed leagues.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Daniel Nava, 2B Johnny Giavotella and C Jett Bandy are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jacob Turner Sunday, July 17. C Geovany Soto will start at catcher and is batting sixth. 2B Gregorio Petit will start at second base and is batting eighth. OF Todd Cunningham will start in left field and is batting ninth.
Fantasy Tip: Soto has gone 2-for-7 since returning from the disabled list and should be a decent option in two-catcher leagues. Soto has gone 3-for-11 in his limited playing time this month, but owners should be able to find better options. Cunningham is hitting only .067 this season and should be avoided in all leagues.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Daniel Nava, 2B Johnny Giavotella and C Jett Bandy are not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman Sunday, July 10. INF Jefry Marte will bat fifth and play first base, 1B/OF Ji-Man Choi will start in left field and hit sixth, C Geovany Soto will start behind the plate and bat eighth and INF Gregorio Petit will hit ninth and play second base.
Fantasy Tip: Soto is making his first appearance since being activated from the disabled list due to a torn meniscus in his right knee and should be avoided in his first game back. Marte and Choi are both batting well below the Mendoza line this season and are not worthy of consideration for daily fantasy lineups, while Petit is nothing more than a source of emergency cap relief.
