Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Grant Green is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 1. SS Taylor Featherstone is starting at the keystone and is batting ninth against Oakland Athletics SP Cody Martin.
Fantasy Tip: Even against a pitcher making his first start of the season in the big leagues, Featherston ($1,600, 3.2% of cap), who's hitting only .130 (12-for-92) with one home run, shouldn't be used on FantasyScore.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B David Freese (finger) was activated from the disabled list and is in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Cody Martin Tuesday, Sept. 1. Freese is hitting seventh in the batting order.
Fantasy Tip: Freese ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) should return to a regular role at the hot corner for the Halos, so look to add him in deeper mixed leagues if he's available and you're in need at a corner infield spot. Starting him on FantasyScore tonight would be an under-the-radar play in his first game back against a weaker starter.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker is 0-2 with a 7.85 ERA in four starts against the Oakland Athletics this season. He has only one win in six career games against the A's. Shoemaker is facing Oakland Tuesday, Sept. 1.
Fantasy Tip: The fact that Shoemaker ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has struggled against the A's this year and in general for the Angels could work in your favor as a sleeper pick on FantasyScore. He's also allowed frequent long balls, but he'll be in a park that suppresses homers, and he's coming off a solid outing against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Cron ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) typically slides into the four-hole against lefties, and he lands in a great matchup Monday. Cron owns a .324/.377/.549 slash line over his past 22 games with four home runs, and he is worth a long look as a value play at FantasyScore Monday.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Iannetta ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is just 6-for-40 (.150) with four RBIs at the plate this month and is hitting .188 for the season. Better low-priced catching options are available in FantasyScore today, so he should be avoided.

Fantasy Tip: It's possible that Heaney ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) could have been on a pitch count during Friday's start to save wear and tear on his arm. He is scheduled to make his next start against the Oakland Athletics Wednesday, Sept. 2.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 18:08:58 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) had been sent down to Class AAA Salt Lake earlier in the month following a pair of ineffective starts but was dominant in his first game back Thursday. If he remains in the starting rotation, he could make his next outing against the Oakland Athletics next week.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 08:24:15 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cron ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has a .291-3-6 line in 86 at-bats against lefties and is a solid low-end buy on FantasyScore.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:19:48 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has flashed excellent form on the mound at times this season, but he allowed 13 runs over 7 1/3 innings during his past two starts. He cannot be started with confidence in any fantasy format at this point, as he is just 11 days removed from that horrible two-start showing. Plus, the Tigers are far from a pushover offensively.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 13:24:39 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) typically leads off against southpaws, and hitting atop of a potent lineup is a significant value boost for him. He is worth a look as a value play at FantasyScore Wednesday. Anthony Gose ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) shifts down to the nine-hole and his upside takes a hit.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Ryan Jackson is starting at second base and batting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander Wednesday, Aug. 26. 2B Grant Green (knee) tweaked his knee during the game Tuesday, Aug. 25.
Fantasy Tip: With Johnny Giavotella ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) and Grant Green ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) out, Jackson draws into the lineup, but he is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore players. Jackson also has fleeting AL-only and cavernous mixed value.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 12:28:22 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Shoemaker ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) will return to the fifth spot in the rotation for the final month of the season. He was struggling before his demotion with a 4.76 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 1.6 home runs allowed per nine innings. Using him on FantasyScore tomorrow against the Detroit Tigers wouldn't be a wise decision.

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Grant Green (knee) went for an MRI Tuesday, Aug. 25, and the tests showed just a "tweak" to his right knee. Green is hopeful of returning to game action Wednesday, Aug. 26.
Fantasy Tip: Green ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he officially plays and can prove his health in a full game without incident. If he sits Wednesday it is likely Ryan Jackson ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) would get the nod.
Tue, 25 Aug 2015 18:10:07 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Green ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) had a single in his only at-bat before departing. Ryan Jackson ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) took over for him at second base and could be a short-term FantasyScore option and salary saver if he makes a start or two.
