Angels | Hector Santiago continues strong July

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 00:30:00 -0700

Los Angeles Angels OF Hector Santiago improved to 5-0 overall with a 1.48 ERA in July following a 6-2 win over the Kansas City Royals. Santiago is 9-4 overall.

Fantasy Tip: Santiago has hit his stride, partially due to hot-hitting Angels players in the lineup. This, and Santiago's excellent command at the plate this month, makes him a solid fantasy player for daily and deeper AL and mixed leagues.

Angels | Albert Pujols drives in four runs

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 00:26:14 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols had four RBI Monday, July 25, in a 6-2 win over the Kansas City Royals. Pujols upped his RBI total to 76 this season.

Fantasy Tip: Barring injury, Pujols is in line for a monster season at the plate, partially thanks to hitting behind players like Mike Trout, Kole Calhoun and Yunel Escobar. Needless to say, all formats should have Pujols in their lineup. He's an excellent daily player and a regular-lineup guy as well.

Angels | Nick Tropeano gets second opinion

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 16:55:11 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Nick Tropeano (elbow) went to see Dr. David Altcheck in New York Monday, July 25, for a second opinion on his damaged ulnar collateral ligament. There has been no word yet on a decision.

Fantasy Tip: Tropeano is facing the likelihood of Tommy John surgery with a torn UCL in his right elbow. Understandably, he's looking for a different method to get through the injury, but unfortunately, it seems more likely than not that he'll have to eventually undergo the season-ending operation. If that happens, that would also cost him the entire 2017 season as well.

Angels | Albert Pujols has owned Ian Kennedy

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 15:22:38 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols is 4-for-10 with three home runs in his career against Kansas City Royals SP Ian Kennedy, who he faces Monday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols won't help your team's batting average (.249) anymore, but he is still very productive in the power department, hitting 19 home runs and driving in 72 on the season. It's a small sample size against Kennedy, but you can't argue with the success. You could do much worse than Pujols tonight as your daily first baseman.

Angels | Hector Santiago pitching well lately

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 15:19:19 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago has a 2.28 ERA in his last seven starts and has allowed just 12 runs (11 earned) in 43 1/3 innings in that span. He has a 1.70 ERA in 42 1/3 career innings against the Kansas City Royals, who he faces Monday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the recent strong stretch, Santiago still has mediocre numbers for the Halos this year with a 4.32 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 7.8 K/9. He's been the subject of trade rumors and could be moved by Aug. 1, which could either hurt or help his fantasy value depending on where he goes. He'll likely remain a matchup play in deep mixed and AL-only universes.

Angels | Andrelton Simmons on a tear

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 15:15:17 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Andrelton Simmons had two more hits Sunday, July 24, and is hitting .404 since June 23.

Fantasy Tip: He's on fire, but he has no home runs and 11 RBI in that same span, which shows his limited offerings with the bat for fantasy owners. Because he lacks power and runs rarely, Simmons is basically a guy to own for middle infield depth in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Consider riding the hot hand as a value pick in DFS.

Angels | Hector Santiago available

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 11:08:08 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago is available on the trade market, and several teams have inquired about him with the Angels listening.

Fantasy Tip: Santiago is a middling pitcher for owners in deep mixed and AL-only leagues with his 4.32 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 7.8 strikeouts per nine innings. He could see a slight boost in fantasy value if he's traded to a contender, but he did have a cozy pitching environment in L.A.

Angels | Ugly outing for Tim Lincecum

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 18:47:06 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tim Lincecum allowed eight runs on seven hits while walking two over 1 1/3 innings in a loss to the Houston Astros Sunday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum's ERA ballooned to 8.70, and he has struggled since a solid debut. For those owners clinging to the hope of some kind of resurgence, it is time to cut bait with Lincecum.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs to start Tuesday

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 13:32:28 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (elbow, shoulder) is scheduled to be the starting pitcher against the Kansas City Royals Tuesday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Skaggs has been pitching well in the minors and will be making his first MLB start in nearly two seasons. He will be facing a tough opponent in the Royals in his first game back, but he should be owners in deeper mixed leagues.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella not starting

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 10:05:44 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers Sunday, July 24. 2B Gregorio Petit will start at second base and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Petit has receive decent playing time over the last few weeks and is hitting .300 with one RBI over the last seven days. Petit should be used in AL-only leagues but probably can be avoided in mixed leagues.

Angels | Jered Weaver tuned up in H-Town

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 21:19:36 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver allowed six earned runs, seven hits and three walks with just one strikeout over four innings in a loss Saturday, July 23, against the Houston Astros. He threw just 51 of his 84 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver is 8-8 with a 5.32 ERA overall and should only be rostered in deeper AL-only fantasy leagues at this point. He is 0-3 with a 9.39 ERA in three outings against the Astros this season, so remember that and avoid him next time Houston pops up on the schedule.

Angels | Yunel Escobar continues to shine

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 20:02:21 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Yunel Escobar went 2-for-4 with a run scored Saturday, July 23, against the Houston Astros to push his batting average up to .318.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar has rolled up eight games with two or more hits in eight of the past 16 games. He has re-emerged as a must-start fantasy option in all AL-only leagues and deeper mixed rotisserie formats with his high average.

Angels | Carlos Perez returns to action

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 13:29:04 -0700

Los Angeles Angels C Carlos Perez is in the starting lineup and will bat eighth against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh on Saturday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: Perez was optioned to the minors earlier this month after Geovany Soto returned from the disabled list to work on his bat. Mission accomplished. Perez went 11-for-31 with five extra-base hits after being sent down and will likely be in line for regular at-bats for the next week or so as Soto recovers from a left knee injury. Despite the surge, Perez is unlikely to have value outside of AL-only leagues.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella takes a seat

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:10:20 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. 2B Gregorio Petit is starting at the keystone and is hitting ninth against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers.

Fantasy Tip: It's likely a normal day of rest for Giavotella. Petit is hitting .281 on the year but has limited offensive skills with only two home runs and 15 RBI in 128 at-bats. He's also never stolen a base in his five-year career. Ignore him everywhere.

Angels | Tyler Skaggs ready for the majors?

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:06:49 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tyler Skaggs (elbow) could be activated from the disabled list to start as soon as Sunday, July 24, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: It would be wise to take a wait-and-see approach with Skaggs outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, but he did post a 2.51 ERA with 45 strikeouts over 32 1/3 innings through seven starts with Class AAA Salt Lake. There is some upside and Skaggs is a hurler to watch.
