Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Kole Calhoun went hitless in two at-bats with a walk Saturday, July 16, against the Chicago White Sox to snap an 11-game hitting streak.
Fantasy Tip: Despite the hitless game Calhoun remains a solid fantasy option in all AL-only leagues and deeper mixed formats as well as DFS play, as he offers a little bit of help in the batting average and power categories.

Fantasy Tip: Calhoun is off to a respectable start with 18 runs, three home runs, 19 RBI, a stolen base and a .305/.376/.435 slash line. There is room for improve in the slugging department, but fantasy owners have to be pleased with the batting average. Calhoun remains a mid-tier starter in all fantasy formats.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Yunel Escobar (thumb) is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 13. 3B Jefry Marte is starting at the hot corner and is batting eighth against Seattle Mariners SP Nathan Karns. OF Kole Calhoun moves up to the leadoff spot, with OF Mike Trout hitting second and 1B Albert Pujols hitting third.
Fantasy Tip: The Angels expect Escobar to be fine and possibly return to the lineup as early as tomorrow. That makes Marte one to avoid in all formats tonight and moving forward. Escobar has been a productive on-base man for the Angels at the top of the order but doesn't contribute much outside of average for fantasy owners.
