Angels | Three Angels sitting out Friday

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 15:52:30 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Yunel Escobar, OF Daniel Nava and C Carlos Perez are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Eric Surkamp Friday, June 24. 3B Jefry Marte will start at third base and is batting sixth. C Jett Bandy will start at catcher and is batting seventh, while OF Shane Robinson will start in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Marte has cooled off a bit and has only two hits in his last five games. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better options to use. Bandy has gone 4-for-4 against left-handed pitchers since being called up and may be used in two-catcher leagues. Robinson has had some success over the last week or two but is not a strong option.

Angels | C.J. Cron, Daniel Nava on the bench

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 10:44:22 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron and OF Daniel Nava are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Eric Surkamp Sunday, June 19. 3B Jefry Marte will start at first base and is batting fifth. OF Shane Robinson will start in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Marte has at least one hit in seven of his last nine games and has seven RBI during that span. He should be a decent starting option in AL-only leagues and some daily fantasy leagues.

Angels | Mike Trout back in lineup

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 16:12:30 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout (thumb) is back in the starting lineup and is serving as the designated hitter and batting third against Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco Monday, June 13. OF Shane Robinson is starting in center field and is batting ninth. Also, 1B C.J. Cron will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Get Trout back into all starting lineups immediately. He remains one of the best all-around outfielders in the game and is hitting a cool .309/.415/.543 with 13 home runs, 44 RBI and nine stolen bases. Robinson is a desperation low-end outfield pick in daily formats while hitting ninth.

Angels | Rafael Ortega playing left field

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 08:34:53 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Rafael Ortega is batting sixth and playing left field against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole Sunday, June 5. OF Shane Robinson is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Ortega is batting just .192 (10-for-52) with one home run and five RBI over the past four weeks and should not be viewed as a great fantasy option this afternoon.

Angels | Albert Pujols resting

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 14:30:33 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 1. 1B C.J. Cron is starting at first base and is hitting cleanup against Detroit Tigers SP Michael Fulmer. Also, OF Mike Trout is serving as the designated hitter, which allows OF Shane Robinson to enter the lineup in the No. 8 spot in center field.

Fantasy Tip: It's Pujols' first day off of the season. The veteran slugger isn't the hitter he once was, but he still has 11 home runs and 36 RBI despite a .231 average. He's well on his way to another 30-homer season, just don't expect him to help in average anymore. Cron might be worth a look in daily games after a two-homer contest last night, including the walk-off shot. Robinson should be ignored everywhere. Trout, as always, is a must-start.

Angels | Rafael Ortega out of Saturday lineup

Sat, 28 May 2016 15:51:07 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Rafael Ortega will not start Saturday, May 28, against the Houston Astros. OF Shane Robinson is starting and hitting ninth against Astros SP Dallas Keuchel.

Fantasy Tip: Ortega is a lefty and so is Keuchel, and that is most likely the reason for Ortega's absence from the lineup. Robinson carries little fantasy value with a .143 average in the past week and primary pinch-hitting duty late in games. Ortega is a .274-1-9 hitter in 23 games whose primary help comes in DFS leagues. Even so, Ortega doesn't have enough power to merit starting him every time he plays.

Angels | C.J. Cron sitting Tuesday

Tue, 24 May 2016 13:02:13 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. OF Mike Trout is serving as the designated hitter, while OF Shane Robinson gets the start in center field and is hitting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez.

Fantasy Tip: This allows the Angels to give Trout's tender ankle a rest. As long as he's in the lineup he should be employed everywhere in seasonal leagues. Robinson has next to no fantasy value at the bottom of the order, and he has three hits in 16 at-bats (.188) for the Halos with a career .236 average in the majors. Avoid him.

Angels | Kole Calhoun with day off

Mon, 23 May 2016 13:00:17 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Kole Calhoun is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 23. OF Shane Robinson draws into left field and is batting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland.

Fantasy Tip: It's Calhoun's first day off of the season. Even though Holland has been struggling mightily, Robinson should be avoided everywhere. He has a .237 career average with only five home runs in seven seasons in the big leagues.

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 | Craig Gentry on the DL

Mon, 02 May 2016 10:14:02 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Craig Gentry (back) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, May 1, with a right lumbar spine strain. OF Shane Robinson was called up from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Robinson is expected to share time in left field with Rafael Ortega with Gentry sidelined. The 5-9 outfielder has only five career home runs in seven years in the majors and won't offer fantasy owners much even with his new opportunity. Save him for the most cavernous AL-only leagues if you're hurting for a warm body.
