Angels | Mike Trout, Erick Aybar fine

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 11:08:39 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout (wrist) and SS Erick Aybar (head) are both expected to be in the lineup when the team plays the Houston Astros Tuesday, July 28, according to manager Mike Scioscia. Aybar was injured in a collision with OF Matt Joyce Sunday, July 26, while Trout landed on his left wrist attempting to make a diving catch. "It's fine. A little sore," said Trout, his wrist wrapped after the game in which he homered twice and drove in five runs. "Just a scary thing for me. I didn't really know what to expect -- it hurt pretty bad, but once I loosened up it was better."

Fantasy Tip: Trout ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) homered twice Sunday, including a grand slam, so he's safe to continue running with on FantasyScore. Aybar ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has been a valuable daily play at shortstop lately and makes for a fine pick Tuesday against Astros starter Collin McHugh.

Angels | Albert Pujols will start

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 15:41:06 -0700

Updating a previous story, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have revised their lineup for Tuesday, July 21, against the Minnesota Twins. 1B Albert Pujols will start and hit third in the order, SS Erick Aybar will bat fourth and 2B Grant Green comes out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) will lose his off day due to the late scratching of OF Mike Trout. Pujols has fared much better against right-handed pitching this season, and FantasyScore owners can freely use him against RHP Kyle Gibson of the Twins.

Angels | Mike Trout out Tuesday

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 15:27:08 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout is out of the lineup Tuesday, July 21, against the Minnesota Twins. SS Erick Aybar will move up to the two-spot in the order, while OF Kole Calhoun drops down to third.

Fantasy Tip: Aybar ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) should receive a boost, as he moves up from fifth. Aybar is hitting .277 against right-handed pitchers, but he has 13 doubles and two home runs on the season. He'll make for a strong option on FantasyScore, as he goes up against RHP Kyle Gibson.

Angels | Erick Aybar thriving out of leadoff role

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 15:52:02 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Erick Aybar has a .421/.430/.566 slash line over 21 games since being moved out of the leadoff spot Friday, June 16. During the stretch, he has 15 runs, eight doubles, a home run, eight RBI and two stolen bases.

Fantasy Tip: Aybar ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has hit fifth the majority of the time, and while he hasn't fully cashed in the RBI department, the shortstop has been a top performer at his position during his recent hot streak. Looking ahead, expect the counting stats to pick up at the expense of his unsustainable slash line (.449 BABIP during the span).

Angels | Career first for Erick Aybar

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 21:15:42 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Erick Aybar had a career-high five hits in an 8-2 win over the Texas Rangers Friday, July 3, scoring twice and driving in a pair.

Fantasy Tip: Aybar ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been swinging the bat well in recent weeks, but he doesn't contribute much outside of runs scored. There are options available in the same price range at FantasyScore with a lot more upside.

Angels | Erick Aybar out Saturday

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 13:19:00 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Erick Aybar (hamstring) is out of the lineup Saturday, June 27. SS Taylor Featherston is hitting ninth in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Featherston ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has a .125-1-4 line and isn't a good option on FantasyScore.

Angels | Erick Aybar exits game

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 05:38:48 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Erick Aybar (hamstring) left the game against the Seattle Mariners Friday, June 26, due to tightness in his left hamstring. Manager Mike Scioscia does not believe it is a serious injury.

Fantasy Tip: Aybar ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has stole just 33 bases since the beginning of the 2013 season, as he is clearly no longer a real threat on the base paths. From 2010 to 2012 he averaged 24 per season. His batting average (.262) and on-base percentage (.304) aren't helpful, either. While there is room for improvement, Aybar's fantasy stock is only helpful in the runs category, and he should be viewed as nothing more than a low-end option outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only formats. Check back for updates on his injury status and make sure he is healthy before utilizing him at FantasyScore.

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 16:06:00 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Erick Aybar is batting sixth in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray Friday, June 19.

Fantasy Tip: Aybar ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has only one hit in his last seven games and is hitting .167 in June. Owners on FantasyScore may want to avoid Aybar until he is more productive at the plate.

Angels | Erick Aybar sitting

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 10:28:34 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Erick Aybar is out of the lineup Thursday, June 18, in favor of SS Taylor Featherston.

Fantasy Tip: Featherston ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting eighth against D-Backs rookie Allen Webster. He's just 3-for-36 (.083) on the year and should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Angels | Halos top of lineup due for big game?

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 10:09:53 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Erick Aybar, OF Mike Trout and 1B Albert Pujols are a combined 17-for-48 (.354) in their careers against Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez, whom they'll be facing Friday, June 12.

Fantasy Tip: Aybar ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is 6-for-18 (.333) against Chavez, Trout ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) is 4-for-14 (.286) with two home runs and five RBI, and Pujols ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is 7-for-16 (.438) with a homer and four RBI. All three should be fine FantasyScore clicks tonight, and you may even want to consider taking more than one of them. Trout and Pujols continue to clear the fences with regularity lately, as both hit their 17th home runs of the year last night.
