From -- thru  --


Angels | Andrelton Simmons activated

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 15:28:16 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Andrelton Simmons (thumb) has been activated from the disabled list and inserted back into the lineup for Wednesday, June 15. He's starting at shortstop and batting ninth opposite Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey. SS Brendan Ryan was designated for assignment as well.

Fantasy Tip: Simmons hasn't appeared in a game since May 8, and given his poor .219/.246/.281 line on the year, owners shouldn't be in a rush to get him back into lineups. Let Simmons settle in first before considering his services for deeper leagues.

Angels | Cliff Pennington hits the DL

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 21:35:48 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim placed INF Cliff Pennington (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, June 1, due to a left hamstring injury. SS Brendan Ryan was recalled from Class AAA Salt Lake to take his spot on the roster.

Fantasy Tip: Pennington's stay in the majors was brief, as he just returned Saturday from the DL. Neither he nor Ryan are worth rostering outside of the deepest of NL-only fantasy leagues.

Angels | Carlos Perez, Brendan Ryan out

Sun, 15 May 2016 12:14:36 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Carlos Perez and SS Brendan Ryan are not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Sunday, May 15. C Geovany Soto will start at catcher and is batting seventh, while SS Gregorio Petit will start at shortstop and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Soto is hitting .231 with one home run and one RBI this month but should still be a starting candidate in two-catcher leagues and some daily fantasy leagues. Petit has gone 2-for-5 since joining the Angels but is not a great option at this point.

Angels | Brendan Ryan, Shane Robinson starting

Wed, 11 May 2016 15:30:11 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Brendan Ryan and OF Shane Robinson are both in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia Wednesday, May 11. Ryan is starting at the 6 and is hitting ninth, while Robinson is in left field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan is making his first start after he was traded to the Angels yesterday. He's likely to split time at shortstop with Cliff Pennington, and both light-hitting middle infielders are strictly depth options in deep AL-only leagues. Robinson has a career .239 average and only five career home runs. Avoid him in DFS tonight.

Angels | LA Angels acquire Brendan Ryan

Tue, 10 May 2016 13:57:30 -0700

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim acquired SS Brendan Ryan from the Washington Nationals on Tuesday, May 10. No information was available on other players involved in the deal.

Fantasy Tip: The Angels need a shortstop and quickly, especially with Andrelton Simmons out for 6-8 weeks (and possibly longer) with a thumb injury. Ryan was with Class AAA Syracuse and not with the Nationals, but he will get a chance to play in the bigs. It may be in a platoon with Cliff Pennington, who is 7-for-40 this season. Neither player carries significant fantasy value, so you will want to look elsewhere for a substitute shortstop.

Cubs | Chicago lands Adam Warren in trade

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 17:10:14 -0800

The Chicago Cubs acquired SP Adam Warren and SS Brendan Ryan from the New York Yankees Tuesday, Dec. 8, in exchange for SS Starlin Castro.

Fantasy Tip: The signing of Ben Zobrist in Chicago clearly spurred this move. Now the Cubs have more flexibility with Zobrist at either second base or left field. Javier Baez could also be on the trade block, and his fantasy value is in flux right now without a clear path to consistent playing time. Warren will likely be a swing man for the Cubs in either a starting role or as a long reliever. He doesn't carry much fantasy value but could be a cheap matchup play on FantasyScore if he sees time in a starting role. Ryan can be ignored everywhere.

Yankees | Greg Bird, Didi Gregorius sitting

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 08:22:24 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Greg Bird and SS Didi Gregorius are not in the starting lineup for the first game of a doubleheader against the Baltimore Orioles Saturday, Oct. 3. C Austin Romine will start at first base against SP Wei-Yin Chen and is batting eighth in the lineup, while SS Brendan Ryan will start at shortstop and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Bird ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) and Gregorius ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) likely are sitting out because the team if facing a left-handed pitcher. Ryan ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Romine ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) have not done much at the plate this season and are not great option for fantasy owners.

Yankees | Didi Gregorius sitting vs. White Sox

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 14:31:31 -0700

New York Yankees SS Didi Gregorius is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 24. SS Brendan Ryan is starting in left field and batting ninth against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Gregorius ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has raised his game in he second half with a respectable .302/.342/.423 slash line, but he is still a low-end fantasy option in all formats. Against Sale ($8,900, 17.8% of cap), Ryan ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief and ill-advised play at FantasyScore Thursday.

Yankees | Chase Headley not starting Tuesday

Tue, 08 Sep 2015 12:43:22 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Chase Headley is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 8, against the Baltimore Orioles. SS Brendan Ryan is manning third base and hitting ninth against Orioles SP Kevin Gausman.

Fantasy Tip: Headley ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) may be sitting because of his .182 mark in the past seven days and a .200 average against Gausman. Ryan ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) doesn't do much better against Gausman and carries little FantasyScore value.

Yankees | Stephen Drew on the bench

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 08:08:04 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Stephen Drew is not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Saturday, Sept. 5. SS Brendan Ryan will start at second base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Drew ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) likely is receiving a day off Saturday. Ryan ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .214 this season and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.
