Angels | Collin Cowgill scratched

Sun, 24 May 2015 10:23:28 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Collin Cowgill (undisclosed) was scratched from the starting lineup Sunday, May 24. OF Matt Joyce will take his place in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see when Cowgill ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) will be able to return. Joyce ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has also been struggling at the plate and probably should be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.

Angels | Matt Joyce start time confusion

Wed, 20 May 2015 06:02:57 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce was benched Monday, May 18, after mistakenly believing the game started at night since the Angels played a day game Sunday, May 17. Angels manager Mike Scioscia called the move a "lineup decision" Monday, and Joyce cleared the air the next day. Joyce was not fined for the mishap.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is struggling in 2015 and should be in your lineup only against right-handed pitchers. Avoid him unless you're looking for a cheap source of cap relief.

Angels | Collin Cowgill receives start

Fri, 15 May 2015 11:33:32 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Collin Cowgill will be the starting left fielder against the Baltimore Orioles Friday, May 15. OF Matt Joyce is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) probably is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed starter. Cowgill ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has struggled at the plate so far this season with a .184 batting average and is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Angels | Matt Joyce hitting cleanup

Thu, 07 May 2015 14:44:18 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce is hitting cleanup against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Thursday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: It seems very odd that a player hitting just .148 (12-for-81) would be in the cleanup spot, but the Halos are trying to get Joyce ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) going against a right-hander. Until he shows more signs of life, though, you should avoid him at FantasyScore.

Angels | Matt Joyce gets vote of confidence

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 15:30:59 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce got a vote of confidence from manager Mike Scioscia,

Fantasy Tip: Joyce ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has the vote for now, but how much longer? Hitters like Collin Cowgill and Grant Green could get more at-bats, or the Angels could call up a hitter like Efren Navarro. Any way you slice it, Joyce's leash is short and he should be avoided.

Angels | Collin Cowgill draws start Tuesday

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 16:21:29 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Collin Cowgill is starting in left field and batting sixth in the batting order against Oakland Athletics left-handed SP Drew Pomeranz Tuesday, April 21. OF Matt Joyce is starting on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is slumping to begin the year, so even when he's in the lineup, you'll want to avoid him at FantasyScore until he gets going. Cowgill ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) had a fine spring and has carried it over into the regular season. He did well against lefties in 2014, going 36-for-125 (.288) with three of his five home runs. Consider him as a sleeper for your daily lineups tonight.

Angels | Matt Joyce, C.J. Cron struggling

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 09:01:33 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce and DH C.J. Cron are hitting .167 and .129, respectively, to begin the 2015 season in the absence of OF Josh Hamilton (shoulder). The two have combined for one home run and seven RBI.

Fantasy Tip: It'd be wise to avoid Joyce ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) and Cron ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) at FantasyScore for the time being. Joyce should only be started in daily lineups when he's facing a right-handed pitcher.

Angels | Matt Joyce has sore foot

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 15:07:03 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce (foot) is serving as the designated hitter Friday, April 17, after fouling a ball off his foot Wednesday, April 15. DH C.J. Cron is on the bench Friday as a result.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce's ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) foot shouldn't keep you from considering him at FantasyScore tonight in a juicy matchup as the cleanup hitter against Houston Astros starter Roberto Hernandez.

Angels | Matt Joyce hitting cleanup

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 14:08:18 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce is serving as the designated hitter and is in the cleanup spot against Houston Astros SP Roberto Hernandez Friday, April 17, with DH C.J. Cron once again on the bench. OF Efren Navarro is starting in left field and hitting eighth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) becomes much more attractive hitting in the heart of the Halos lineup against a weak starter in Hernandez. It doesn't hurt to consider the veteran lefty swinger as a sleeper pick at FantasyScore in the outfield.

Angels | Matt Joyce sitting against Kansas City

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 13:34:03 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce is not in the starting lineup against the Kansas City Royals Friday, April 10.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Joyce from your lineups in all fantasy formats. He has traditionally been viewed as a platoon player and has limited plate appearances against left-handed pitchers in his career. So with southpaw Jason Vargas on the hill Friday, Joyce has slotted back to the bench. While Joyce still projects to receive the lion's share of at-bats, his fantasy stock takes a hit without everyday looks at the plate.
