Angels | Matt Joyce gets vote of confidence

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 15:30:59 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce got a vote of confidence from manager Mike Scioscia,

Fantasy Tip: Joyce ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has the vote for now, but how much longer? Hitters like Collin Cowgill and Grant Green could get more at-bats, or the Angels could call up a hitter like Efren Navarro. Any way you slice it, Joyce's leash is short and he should be avoided.

Angels | C.J. Cron to see everyday duty

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 13:55:47 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim DH C.J. Cron will likely be in the lineup on an everyday basis, according to manager Mike Scioscia. "The plan is to get C.J. in for a lot of at-bats," Scioscia said. "No doubt in the spring he was swinging the bat better than he was last year. I want to give him a chance to see if he can come out and contribute."

Fantasy Tip: Cron ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) could see time at first base to relieve Albert Pujols, or he could DH as long as Josh Hamilton is out. Cron had a hot-hitting spring and is a decent play at this low price.

Angels | Andrew Heaney has shot at LAA rotation

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 12:23:25 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney has a "legitimate shot" at cracking the starting rotation, according to manager Mike Scioscia. "We think he's ready for the challenge of the major leagues," Scioscia said. "(Making a team for the first time) is sometimes the toughest bridge for a player to cross."

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on Heaney's progress. Heaney may be worth a flyer in late rounds of mixed leagues and deeper AL leagues if he makes the starting rotation.

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 00:26:56 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia has expressed frustration with OF Josh Hamilton, saying he isn't the same player that the Angels signed before the 2013 season. "He's not in the batter's box with the confidence we know he has. He's not attacking the ball like he can. He's working hard to try to find it …but we need him to do what he's capable of doing, or close to that," Scioscia said.

Angels | Mike Scioscia not on hot seat

Wed, 15 May 2013 12:46:09 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim owner Arte Moreno indicated that manager Mike Scioscia is not on the hot seat despite the team's franchise-worst start to the season. Scioscia has more than $25 million left on his current contract that runs through the 2018 season. "Mike has zero problems, OK?" Moreno told FoxSports.com. "This is his 14th year. Mike goes beyond what he does on the field. He's a good person. He's a good person in the community, a very good baseball guy. You don't have to ask me. You just ask other managers, other baseball people."
