Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Hank Conger has seen more playing time lately, which is a combination of the struggles of C Chris Iannetta and Conger's overall improved play offensively and defensively.
Fantasy Tip: Conger has thrown out more would-be base stealers than Iannetta, and he is seeing more at-bats. He is worth using as a No. 2 catcher in AL-only fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Hank Conger is catching SP C.J. Wilson's fifth straight start, but manager Mike Scioscia said it has more to do with C Chris Iannetta's struggles. Scioscia isn't necessarily trying to pair Conger with Wilson. "First and foremost, we want him to get a little more of a comfort level behind the plate. He's doing a good job, but it just doesn't look like he's as comfortable as he needs to be back there. On the offensive side, he hasn't gotten a lot of hits to fall in, but that's secondary to what our starting pitchers need especially," Scioscia said.
