MLB | Shane Victorino looking for one-year deal

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 14:12:49 -0800

Free-agent OF Shane Victorino (Angels) is looking for a one-year contract to re-establish his market value, according to John Boggs, his agent.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino has drawn interest from the Cleveland Indians, and Boggs himself said there has been interest from two clubs. Two years ago, Victorino hit .294 with 15 home runs for the Red Sox, but injuries derailed his power. If he lands in the right situation, Victorino could be worth a late-round selection.

Indians | Cleveland interested in Shane Victorino

Mon, 07 Dec 2015 12:58:23 -0800

Free-agent OF Shane Victorino (Red Sox) is of interest to the Cleveland Indians.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino has only played 223 games over the past three seasons, and he has been a major fantasy disappointment the past two years. Outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only formats, he isn't worth a selection in seasonal leagues this spring. After all, Victorino is entering his age-35 season and has stole just nine bases over the past two years.

Indians | CLE interested in Shane Victorino

Sat, 28 Nov 2015 10:07:15 -0800

The Cleveland Indians have expressed interest in free-agent OF Shane Victorino (Angels).

Fantasy Tip: The 35-year-old Victorino is capable of playing all three outfield positions and has resumed switch hitting but he isn't much more than a late-round flier in single-league fantasy formats due to his recent injury history. He hit .230 with one home run and seven RBIs in 178 at-bats with the Red Sox and Angels in 2015.

MLB | Shane Victorino to resume switch hitting

Sun, 08 Nov 2015 11:15:31 -0800

Free-agent OF Shane Victorino (Angels) is finally healthy and expects to return to switch hitting with his new team, according to agent John Boggs.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino batted exclusively right-handed during the 2015 season because he experienced soreness whenever he hit from the left side in spring training. He hit just .230 with one home run, seven RBIs and seven steals in 178 at-bats this year and isn't worth much more than a late-round flier in single-league fantasy formats.

Angels | Shane Victorino draws into lineup

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 15:48:13 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Shane Victorino is batting sixth against Oakland Athletics SP Felix Doubront Monday, Aug. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) lands in a great spot Monday, and he is worth considering at FantasyScore. He has been platooning with David Murphy ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) in left field with Victorino drawing in against lefties. Victorino owns a respectable .341 on-base percentage against them.

Angels | Shane Victorino leading off vs. Chicago

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 13:33:10 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Shane Victorino is starting in left field and batting first against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Monday, Aug. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has just three extra-base hits this season over 120 plate appearances and is 2-for-12 since joining the Angels. With Sale ($9,400, 18.8% of cap) on the mound, there is no reason to target Victorino in FantasyScore contests Monday, especially in his current form at the dish.

Angels | Shane Victorino playing right field

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 10:23:30 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Shane Victorino is leading off and playing right field against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw Saturday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is batting .316 versus lefties with a home run and two RBIs in 38 at-bats this season and is 4-for-18 against Kershaw in his career with a double, home run and two RBIs. FantasyScore owners looking for an inexpensive outfielder may want to consider him today.

Angels | Shane Victorino bats leadoff tonight

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 15:47:56 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Shane Victorino is making his second start with his new team Thursday, July 30, and will be batting leadoff against Houston Astros SP Scott Kazmir.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) had a satisfactory debut on Wednesday in which he recorded a hit in four at-bats while also scoring a run. When he's in the lineup, he's a decent daily option, as most players generally are when they hit right in front of the likes of Mike Trout and Albert Pujols. At the same time, though, it's hard to rely on him in standard leagues, as he'll be platooning in left field while going up against left-handers.

Angels | Shane Victorino to face lefties

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 17:45:35 -0700

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim plan to use OF Shane Victorino as their regular left fielder against left-handed pitchers.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is batting .343 with one home run and two RBIs in 35 at-bats against lefties this year, while only batting .190 with two RBIs in 63 at-bats versus righties. He can be viewed as a low-priced flier in FantasyScore.
