Angels | Heavy workload for Hector Santiago

Sun, 24 May 2015 19:38:49 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago threw a career-high 124 pitches in a 6-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox Sunday, May 24. He allowed three runs on seven hits in 6 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Santiago ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has allowed one earned run or less in six of his nine starts this season and has allowed more than three runs only once. However, he threw a ton of pitches Sunday, and you may want to avoid him in his next start to make sure he doesn't have any arm fatigue.

Angels | Collin Cowgill scratched

Sun, 24 May 2015 10:23:28 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Collin Cowgill (undisclosed) was scratched from the starting lineup Sunday, May 24. OF Matt Joyce will take his place in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see when Cowgill ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) will be able to return. Joyce ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has also been struggling at the plate and probably should be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.

Angels | Collin Cowgill starting in LF

Sun, 24 May 2015 09:34:39 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Collin Cowgill will be the starting left fielder against the Boston Red Sox Sunday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Cowgill ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has struggled at the plate this season and has only four hits in 23 at-bats this month. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use in the outfield.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella sitting out

Sun, 24 May 2015 09:26:36 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 24. 2B Taylor Featherston will take his place in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Giavotella ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return soon. Featherston ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has only one hit in 20 at-bats this season and should not be considered by owners on FantasyScore.

Angels | C.J. Cron sitting against righties

Fri, 22 May 2015 15:12:43 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron has a slash line of .200/.222/.274 and hasn't been starting against right-handers, including Friday, May 22. OF Marc Krauss is serving as the designated hitter and hitting eighth in the batting order against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Cron ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) isn't usable at FantasyScore until he turns things around against righties. Krauss ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) hit his first homer last night, but he remains a deep sleeper at FantasyScore, especially against Porcello, who has limited lefty sticks to a .248/.299/.450 slash line in 2015.

Angels | Albert Pujols back in lineup

Fri, 22 May 2015 15:09:24 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (hand) is back in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello Friday, May 22, after missing two days after taking a fastball off his left hand and wrist. He will attempt to return and hit through the pain in his hand.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is hitting only .231 (33-for-143) with seven home runs and 15 RBI on the year. It makes sense to avoid him tonight at FantasyScore against Porcello, who is 3-0 with a 2.10 ERA and 21 K's in 25 2/3 innings in his last four starts.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker's job in danger?

Fri, 22 May 2015 08:48:17 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker appears to be on a short leash, but Angels manager Mike Scioscia was noncommittal on making a roster move just yet. "I think that Matty has thrown some really good games so far this year and some games where he struggled," he said. "We want to see what direction he's going to go. If we were talking after the game he just pitched in Baltimore, you guys were asking a lot of different questions. It's in there. He just needs to find the consistency." SP Andrew Heaney has pitched well in Class AAA ball and could be poised to take Shoemaker's spot in the rotation if the latter continues to struggle.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has surrendered nine home runs in his last four starts and shouldn't be played by fantasy owners until he shows signs of righting the ship. Heaney could be a speculative add in deep setups.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker giving up homers

Thu, 21 May 2015 19:11:07 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker has allowed at least two home runs in three of his last four starts and has allowed an AL-worst 13 for the year.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has allowed nine home runs in his last four starts alone, and his ERA has climbed to 6.29. He needs to be avoided at FantasyScore until he can keep the ball in the park.

Angels | Albert Pujols hopes to return Friday

Thu, 21 May 2015 16:28:14 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (hand) hopes to return to the lineup Friday, May 22, after bruising his left hand while being hit by a pitch Wednesday, May 20. The swelling in his hand has reduced drastically, but he did not take batting practice Thursday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is hitting only .231 (33-for-143) with seven home runs and 15 RBI on the season. You should be cautious with him at FantasyScore tomorrow night and check to see if he's back in. He would be facing Boston Red Sox starter Rick Porcello Friday.

Angels | Albert Pujols injury causing lineup changes

Thu, 21 May 2015 12:46:02 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (wrist) is out with a wrist injury, and the lineup has shuffled as a result. The Angels moved OF Mike Trout to designated hitter and placed OF Collin Cowgill in center for the Thursday, May 21, game against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Trout ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) is a no-brainer to start. The real question is what to do with Cowgill ($2,100, 4.2% of cap). Cowgill won't likely start every game when Pujols is out or Trout serves as DH, but Cowgill should still be ignored with his .182 batting average in the last week.

Angels | Marc Krauss batting Thursday

Thu, 21 May 2015 12:42:32 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Marc Krauss is in the lineup Thursday, May 21, against the Toronto Blue Jays. Krauss is batting second.

Fantasy Tip: Krauss ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting .154 in the last week, so he appears to be the lesser of the two possibilities as long as Albert Pujols is out with a wrist injury. Avoid using Krauss if at all possible.

Angels | Albert Pujols avoids a serious injury

Thu, 21 May 2015 08:26:31 -0700

Updating an ongoing report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols' (wrist) left wrist is not fractured, and he is only expected to miss a few days with the injury.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players will want to avoid Pujols ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) until he returns and proves his health, especially considering the nature of the injury and the potential for it to impact his hitting. Be patient in seasonal leagues, too, as there could be a lingering hindrance to his offensive production. Check back for updates on his status and who may replace him at first base. Marc Krauss and C.J. Cron ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) are candidates.

Angels | Albert Pujols day-to-day

Wed, 20 May 2015 22:37:39 -0700

Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (hand) is considered day-to-day because of his hand contusion but should be fine, according to general manager Jerry Dipoto.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) could miss a game or two but should be back in the starting lineup in the near future. He is only hitting .231 so far this season but could be a starting option against some matchups.

Angels | Jered Weaver continues resurgence

Wed, 20 May 2015 19:34:29 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver continued his bounce back from a poor start to the 2015 season Wednesday, May 20, against the Toronto Blue Jays. Weaver allowed four hits and three runs, but picked up his third consecutive win. Weaver is 3-0 with a 1.54 ERA in his last three outings after losing four of his first six.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) hasn't struck out more than six batters in any one outing, drastically limiting his potential on FantasyScore. Weaver represents too much risk without the potential upside to be a regular FantasyScore option.

Angels | Albert Pujols left game

Wed, 20 May 2015 17:36:05 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (wrist) left the game Wednesday, May 20, against the Toronto Blue Jays. Pujols originally stayed in the game but he was replaced by 1B Marc Krauss for the next turn through the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Krauss ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) would benefit the most if Pujols were to miss any time. Krauss has opened the season with just one hit in his first 14 plate appearances. Not much is known about the extent of Pujols' injury, but Krauss won't be a viable option even with expanded playing time.
