Angels | Jerry Dipoto out as LAA GM?

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 09:43:56 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim general manager Jerry Dipoto has left his post with the team, according to several reports. FOXSports.com's Jon Paul Morosi reports that Angels owner Arte Moreno and president John Carpino are trying to broker a peace between Dipoto and manager Mike Scioscia.

Fantasy Tip: Dipoto and Scioscia have apparently been feuding, and Dipoto was the one on the outs. It doesn't have an effect on fantasy, but it's a situation worth watching if the team decides to start rebuilding and unloading veterans.

Tigers | James McCann impresses Angels manager

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 00:06:21 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann impressed Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia, himself a former catcher. "It looks like he's got all the tools and you never know where it leads for a career but, yeah, he's impressive," Scioscia said.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is turning a lot of heads with his decision-making and his .286 batting average and two home runs. You may want to see what the Tigers do when Alex Avila is healthy and returns to the active roster, as speculation has McCann making the leap to No. 1.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker still starting

Tue, 12 May 2015 23:55:48 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker is still starting over the weekend against the Baltimore Orioles. The Angels have two off days this week, but manager Mike Scioscia is not altering the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has already given up 10 home runs this season. He still has a place in the starting rotation, but you may not want him in your lineup because of all the long balls he has surrendered.

Angels | Albert Pujols has hamstring tightness

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 04:37:47 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (hamstring) left the team's game Wednesday, April 29, due to tightness in his left hamstring. Angels manager Mike Scioscia told media he doesn't expect Pujols to end up on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: You will want to sit Pujols ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) in all daily leagues for the time being. Pujols may miss a few days with this injury issue. Meanwhile, C.J. Cron ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) could end up playing at first base for a few games.

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.

Angels | Manager frustrated with Josh Hamilton

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.
