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 | Daniel Nava off DL, starting

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 15:31:08 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Daniel Nava (groin) was activated from the disabled list Friday, June 17, and is starting in left field and batting sixth against Oakland Athletics SP Kendall Graveman.

Fantasy Tip: Nava should return to being on the strong side of a platoon in left field now that he's back off the DL. Angels left fielders have been brutally bad this year, though, and Nava hasn't been any different. He's hitting .222 with one homer and six RBI on the year and is a low-end depth option in AL-only leagues.

Angels | Daniel Nava could return Friday

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 09:52:16 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Daniel Nava (groin) had three hits in a rehab game with Class AAA Salt Lake Wednesday, June 15, in his fourth minor league rehab game. He could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Friday, June 17, which will give the Angels another option in left field against right-handed pitchers.

Fantasy Tip: Nava had first crack at the majority of playing time in left field to begin the year, but he didn't do anything to prove he's the guy, hitting just .222/.286/.311 with one homer and six RBI in 17 games. He's likely to split playing time with the likes of Todd Cunningham, Jefry Marte and Shane Robinson, and Nava is strictly outfield depth in AL-only leagues.

Angels | Andrelton Simmons, Daniel Nava playing

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 15:12:10 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Andrelton Simmons (thumb) and OF Daniel Nava (groin) are both playing for Class AAA Salt Lake Monday, June 13.

Fantasy Tip: Simmons and Nava are low-end options in cavernous mixed and AL-only formats, as they sit with .219/.246/.281 and .222/.286/.311 slash lines, respectively. Their returns will likely end what little fantasy value Todd Cunningham and Gregorio Petit currently have.

Angels | Daniel Nava begins baseball activity

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 15:08:07 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Daniel Nava (groin) has begun baseball activity.

Fantasy Tip: With a .222/.286/.311 line in 17 games, no one will be rushing to the waiver wire for Nava's services, and with good reason. He'll also most likely be getting limited starts, as he will try to fend off the likes of Rafael Ortega and Shane Robinson for playing time.

Angels | Daniel Nava back to the DL

Tue, 17 May 2016 15:52:36 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Daniel Nava (groin) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, May 17. OF Rafael Ortega was called up from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Nava just can't stay healthy and should be jettisoned at this point in deep mixed leagues if you owned him. Ortega, who hit .294 (15-for-51) with no home runs and four RBI earlier this year, is likely to start in left field against righties. He doesn't have a ton of offensive upside, so consider him as outfield depth in AL leagues.

Angels | Daniel Nava exits

Mon, 16 May 2016 23:36:43 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Daniel Nava (groin) left the game Monday, May 16, with a left groin strain. He'll have an MRI Tuesday, May 17.

Fantasy Tip: The Halos are running out of healthy bodies. Shane Robinson could get first crack at left field if Nava requires a DL stint. Todd Cunningham or Nick Buss could be options at Class AAA Salt Lake. None of them really have much value except as AL-only depth.

Angels | Kole Calhoun in two-hole again

Tue, 10 May 2016 15:11:41 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Kole Calhoun is hitting second for the second straight game against St. Louis Cardinals SP Mike Leake Tuesday, May 10. OF Daniel Nava moves down to the fifth spot in the order.

Fantasy Tip: It's a more familiar lineup position for Calhoun, and he should benefit from hitting ahead of Mike Trout. Calhoun's .295 average is nice, but his owners are likely concerned with just two home runs and 12 RBI. If he sticks in this spot, his numbers could improve in the power department. Continue running him out there in traditional leagues, and he's not a bad midrange outfielder in daily games.

Angels | Daniel Nava, Johnny Giavotella out

Sun, 08 May 2016 11:07:59 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Daniel Nava and 2B Johnny Giavotella are not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese Sunday, May 8. SS Cliff Pennington will start at second base and is batting seventh, while OF Ji-Man Choi will start in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Pennington has gone 3-for-12 with zero RBI in five games this month and is not a great fantasy option in most leagues. Choi is hitting only .067 this season and should be avoided in all leagues.
