Angels | Andrelton Simmons 'weeks away'

Tue, 24 May 2016 15:18:42 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Andrelton Simmons (thumb) is doing baseball activities such as swinging a bat, playing catch and fielding ground balls. However, manager Mike Scioscia said Simmons is still "weeks away."

Fantasy Tip: Gregoria Petit has been playing mainly at the 6 with Simmons out, but he carries very minimal fantasy value in the deepest of AL leagues. Fantasy owners aren't itching for Simmons to return, though, as he was hitting only .219/.246/.281 with one home run and eight RBI. He'll likely remain on the waiver wire in many leagues even when he's back.

Angels | C.J. Cron sitting Tuesday

Tue, 24 May 2016 13:02:13 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. OF Mike Trout is serving as the designated hitter, while OF Shane Robinson gets the start in center field and is hitting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez.

Fantasy Tip: This allows the Angels to give Trout's tender ankle a rest. As long as he's in the lineup he should be employed everywhere in seasonal leagues. Robinson has next to no fantasy value at the bottom of the order, and he has three hits in 16 at-bats (.188) for the Halos with a career .236 average in the majors. Avoid him.

Angels | Joe Smith earns another save

Mon, 23 May 2016 21:42:22 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Joe Smith pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Texas Rangers Monday, May 23, to pick up his sixth save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Smith bounced back after he allowed three runs Saturday, May 21. Smith will continue to serve as the closer for now but likely will lose the job when Huston Street returns from the disabled list. Smith will still have some value in leagues that use holds.

Angels | Nick Tropeano has solid outing

Mon, 23 May 2016 21:33:11 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Nick Tropeano pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings against the Texas Rangers Monday, May 24, to earn his third win of the season. He allowed four hits during the game, while striking out six batters and walking one.

Fantasy Tip: Tropeano has allowed two runs or fewer in seven of his nine starts this season and has at least five strikeouts in six of the games. He is scheduled to face the Houston Astros in his next start and probably will be a fine option in some leagues.

Angels | Albert Pujols adds to HR total

Mon, 23 May 2016 21:24:09 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols went 1-for-4 with one home run and two RBI against the Texas Rangers Monday, May 23. He is now tied for 12th in career home runs with 569.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols has improved his play in May and has at least one hit in 11 of his last 13 games. He is still hitting only .228 this season but is still a decent option in most fantasy leagues.

Angels | Mike Trout excels against Rangers

Mon, 23 May 2016 13:08:37 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout is batting .329 with 18 home runs, 64 RBI and a .592 slugging percentage in his career against the Texas Rangers, who he faces this week. He ranks No. 1 among active players with at least 100 at-bats against the Rangers with a .450 on-base percentage. He's also hitting .321 with a .583 slugging percentage at Globe Life Park and is 11-for-38 (.289) with two home runs, nine RBI and 11 strikeouts against Rangers SP Derek Holland.

Fantasy Tip: It's not a surprise that one of the best players in baseball has dominated a tough division opponent, especially when Globe Life Park is a notorious hitter's stadium. Against the struggling Holland, it's worth paying up for Trout in daily games tonight.

Angels | Kole Calhoun with day off

Mon, 23 May 2016 13:00:17 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Kole Calhoun is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 23. OF Shane Robinson draws into left field and is batting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland.

Fantasy Tip: It's Calhoun's first day off of the season. Even though Holland has been struggling mightily, Robinson should be avoided everywhere. He has a .237 career average with only five home runs in seven seasons in the big leagues.

Angels | Cliff Pennington to be activated Saturday

Sun, 22 May 2016 18:45:12 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Cliff Pennington (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the 15-day disabled list Saturday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Pennington should see regular at-bats until Andrelton Simmons returns, but he is only an option for desperate owners in AL-only formats.

Angels | Career game for Carlos Perez

Sun, 22 May 2016 18:39:42 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Carlos Perez tied a career high with three hits and drove in a career-high five runs in a 10-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles Sunday, May 22. He finished 3-for-4 with a home run.

Fantasy Tip: Perez has nine RBI over his last four games, and he could be a useful option in AL-only leagues and two-catcher formats while Geovany Soto is out with a knee issue.

Angels | Jered Weaver working on his curve

Sun, 22 May 2016 18:33:15 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver allowed two runs on five hits while walking one and striking out six over seven innings in a win over the Baltimore Orioles Sunday, May 22, and he credited consistency with his curveball for the solid outing.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver's strong outings are few and far between at this point, and he should be reserved for AL-only leagues.

Angels | Craig Gentry returning next week

Sun, 22 May 2016 03:41:49 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Craig Gentry (back) played his second game of his rehab assignment with Class A Inland Empire Saturday, May 21, and he is expected to be activated from the disabled list next week.

Fantasy Tip: Gentry is nothing more than a low-end cavernous mixed and AL-only option. He has received just 353 plate appearances over the past three seasons and returned an underwhelming .222/.290/.263 slash line. However, he should see semi-regular playing time, which keeps him in the mix in those deep formats.

Angels | Huston Street to throw simulated game

Sun, 22 May 2016 00:47:10 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Huston Street (oblique) will pitch a simulated game on Monday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Interim closer Joe Smith blew a save on Saturday, but it was only the second time in seven chances where he blew the save. Smith will do fine until Street returns, and when Street does he should go back into his closing job. Until then, bench Street accordingly.

Angels | C.J. Wilson set for rehab stint

Sun, 22 May 2016 00:41:08 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP C.J. Wilson (shoulder) will make his first rehab start with Class A Inland Empire on Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson may need some time in the minors before being activated, and you might want to stay away until he proves himself. The Angels need pitching help, but whether it comes from Wilson right away remains to be seen.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker fans 12 in solid outing

Sun, 22 May 2016 00:29:49 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker struck out 12 batters in a no-decision Saturday, May 21. The Angels lost, 3-1, to the Baltimore Orioles.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker had a 2-5 record and 8.49 ERA entering the game, and his ERA dropped to 6.81. Shoemaker was sent down to Class AAA to work on his mechanics earlier this month, and it looks like Shoemaker is settling down a bit. You might want to wait another start to see if Shoemaker can put together back-to-back contests that are good.

Angels | Hector Santiago ejected

Sat, 21 May 2016 05:46:42 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago was ejected in the third inning against the Baltimore Orioles Friday, May 20, because he was arguing ball and strikes. He allowed four runs on three hits in 2 2/3 innings while striking out two and walking three.

Fantasy Tip: Santiago has not allowed more than four earned runs in any of his starts this season but has allowed 10 home runs in nine starts, which is tied for sixth most among pitchers. He will be a risky option moving forward since he is scheduled to face the Texas Rangers in his next start.
