Angels | Efren Navarro starting at 1B

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 12:16:53 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Efren Navarro is starting at first base and hitting ninth against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi Wednesday, July 1. 1B Albert Pujols is serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is limited offensively and no home runs and five RBI in 71 at-bats for the Halos this year. Consider him a low-end desperation play as a source of salary cap relief tonight.

Angels | Jerry Dipoto out the door

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 09:58:34 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim general manager Jerry Dipoto has resigned, according to two sources.

Fantasy Tip: Dipoto and manager Mike Scioscia have been feuding, and Scioscia appears to have survived the power struggle. A source said Dipoto gave owner Arte Moreno an ultimatum that backfired. This situation has little effect on fantasy.

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.

Angels | Andrew Heaney sharp in victory

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 22:54:12 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney allowed just one run and two hits with two walks and seven strikeouts over seven innings in a win against the New York Yankees Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Heaney ($4,600; or 9.2% of cap) is filling in for the injured Jered Weaver, but he might be staking his claim to a rotation spot in the process. FantasyScore players will want to roll with him as long as he sticks around.

Angels | C.J. Cron with another start

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 16:49:26 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron is serving as the designated hitter and is batting eighth against New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Cron ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) homered in his first game after being called up Monday night. He has plenty of pop, but he's had just 23 hits in 111 at-bats (.207) this season. Cron is a weak FantasyScore option Tuesday evening.

Angels | Albert Pujols open to HR derby

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 09:29:46 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols told reporters on Monday, June 29, that if he makes the All Star team he would like to participate in the Home Run Derby so that his son AJ can watch him compete. He has participated three times, finishing second, tied for third and fourth. Pujols said that this would likely be his last one. Pujols has 23 home runs, fifth in baseball, entering Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($6,000, 12% of cap) dismissed the idea that participating in the Home Run Derby hurts a players swing or impacts their second half performance, but it is something we have seen before. Pujols is a strong daily game player on FantasyScore at his current price. Pujols is a sell high candidate for a variety of reasons, but owners shouldn't be selling for fear of the "home run derby curse."

Angels | Albert Pujols moves up all-time list

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 22:23:19 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols went 1-for-4 with a double and RBI Monday, June 29, against the New York Yankees. He tied Tris Speaker for 13th place on the career extra-base hits list with 1,131.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($6,000; or 12.0% of cap) has looked a lot like himself lately after struggling with foot issues for most of 2014. He has re-emerged as a must-start FantasyScore option this season. He has 25 RBIs in the month of June.

Angels | Jered Weaver throws bullpen

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 16:16:42 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (hip) threw a 20-pitch bullpen session that consisted of all fastballs Monday, June 29, and he felt good. He will throw another session in a couple of days and feature all of his pitches.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) won't suddenly gain velocity after rehabbing his hip injury. You'll have to live with fewer strikeouts and more contact from him from here on out, which makes him strictly a matchup play on FantasyScore and in traditional leagues, preferably when he starts at home.

Angels | Efren Navarro on the bench

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 15:49:02 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Efren Navarro is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Monday, June 29. OF Daniel Robertson is starting in left field and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) struggles against left-handed pitching, which is why he is not playing Monday. Robertson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting .238 in limited playing time this season and is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Angels | Matt Joyce will not start

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 15:35:20 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Monday, June 29. 1B Albert Pujols will serve as the designated hitter and is batting fourth, while 1B C.J. Cron will start at first base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Cron recently rejoined the team but probably is not a great option for fantasy owners at this point.

Angels | Huston Street blows third save

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 19:07:16 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Huston Street blew his third save in 24 chances, allowing a solo home run to Seattle Mariners 3B Kyle Seager Sunday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the blown save, Street's job is one of the most secure in baseball. He owns a 2.27 ERA and 0.92 WHIP overall, and he would need to imlplode before he would be removed as closer.

Angels | Chris Iannetta catching Sunday

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 12:04:49 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Chris Iannetta is back in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Sunday, June 28, batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Iannetta ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has only two hits in 24 lifetime at-bats against Hernandez and is batting just .186 for the season. Look elsewhere for FantasyScore catching options today.

Angels | Albert Pujols serving as DH

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 11:44:43 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols will serve as the designated hitter against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Sunday, June 28, after starting the last two games at first base. INF Efren Navarro will play first base Sunday and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) has been on fire this month, batting .326 with 12 home runs and 24 RBIs. He is 10-for-42 (.238) against Hernandez in his career, with a home run and seven RBIs. Navarro ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitless in nine career at-bats against Hernandez and should be avoided in FantasyScore.

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.
