Angels | Halos shake up lineup Thursday

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 10:43:00 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Erick Aybar is leading off against Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez Thursday, April 30, with 2B Johnny Giavotella hitting second, followed by OFs Mike Trout and Kole Calhoun.

Fantasy Tip: The lineup shift likely has to do mainly with Albert Pujols (hamstring) being out. The change mainly affects Aybar ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) and Giavotella ($3,000, 6.0% of cap), as they'll see more at-bats today as a result. Aybar has struggled to begin the season (.211-0-7), but Giavotella (.317-1-9) has been one of the team's more consistent hitters. Giavotella is the safer FantasyScore entry today, but Aybar could be a sleeper.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella starting at second

Sat, 04 Apr 2015 11:25:18 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella has won the starting job at second base. He beat out INFs Grant Green and Josh Rutledge, both of whom will begin the 2015 season with Triple-A Salt Lake.

Fantasy Tip: Giavotella ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) only has value in deep universal leagues and AL-only formats at the moment. However, his low FantasyScore price tag could be tempting for owners who want to spend big bucks at other positions on days when he has a favorable matchup.
