Angels | There is still a LAA catcher platoon

Mon, 02 May 2016 15:22:36 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Geovany Soto has started three of the past four games after C Carlos Perez started 15 of the first 22 outings, but manager Mike Scioscia still says the two catchers will split time behind the plate.

"I don't think the depth chart has changed," Scioscia said Monday, May 2. "Nothing has changed since we talked in the spring. We're going to need both of these guys. The playing time will certainly be split on performance, behind the plate and at the plate, primarily behind the plate."

Fantasy Tip: There is a stark difference offensively, as Soto is hitting .344 to start the season and Perez owns a .148 batting average. Clearly, neither backstop is going to run away with all the starts, but in the immediate future, Soto is the best fantasy asset. He is worth a look in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only formats as a low-end option.

Angels | Geovany Soto draws another start

Mon, 02 May 2016 12:50:25 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Geovany Soto is batting seventh against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson Monday, May 2. C Carlos Perez is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Soto has started three of the past four games behind the dish for the Angels, and he has a rock-solid .344/.382/.656 slash line through 35 at-bats with six runs, three home runs and seven RBI to start the season. The veteran backstop appears to be earning more playing time, which makes Soto a potential add in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only formats.

Angels | Geovany Soto, Carlos Perez to compete

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 12:29:30 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Cs Geovany Soto and Carlos Perez will compete for the starting catching job. The Angels would like to see the younger Perez take the next step and win the job, but Soto will see valuable playing time regardless.

Fantasy Tip: Perez is younger and has more offensive upside, so he should be the front-runner for more playing time. Neither catcher is very attractive outside of two-catcher or AL-only formats, though.

Angels | Carlos Perez catching Sunday

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 10:40:53 -0700
