Angels | Matt Joyce's time with Angels done?

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 09:27:49 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce (concussion), who is currently on the seven-day concussion disabled list, might not have a spot on the team anymore after the Angels traded for OFs Shane Victorino, David Murphy and David DeJesus in the last two days. Joyce was hitting .178 with five home runs and 21 RBI as the team's left fielder. General manager Bill Stoneman made no announcements on Joyce's future. Joyce was in an 0-for-23 slump and is hitless since July 9. Stoneman is hesitant to part with any of the team's top prospects, such as SP Sean Newcomb, in order to further improve the outfield.

Fantasy Tip: If you were holding onto Joyce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) in a deep AL-only league, it's probably time to cut him. Victorino, Murphy and DeJesus could all see consistent playing time in platoon roles in left field and at designated hitter, but it could be a frustrating situation for fantasy owners to tread through.

Angels | MRI clean for Mike Trout

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 21:29:18 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout (wrist) had an MRI on his wrist and it checked out normal, manager Mike Scioscia said Tuesday, July 28. He is considered day to day. Scioscia said it's even possible Trout could start Wednesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players would be wise to avoid Trout ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) until he can officially play a game and prove his health in a full outing without any setbacks.

Angels | Conor Gillaspie hitting second

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:55:09 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Conor Gillaspie is starting at third base and hitting second against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Tuesday, July 28, with OF Mike Trout (wrist) out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gillaspie ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has three hits in seven at-bats to start his time with the Angels after hitting .237 (41-for-173) with just three home runs and 15 RBI for the Chicago White Sox. Hitting out of the two-hole increases his daily value a bit tonight, but he remains more of a low-end third base option on FantasyScore.

Angels | Jered Weaver close to return

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:22:45 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (hip) will throw four innings or 60 pitches in his rehab start Thursday, July 30, and it could be his last minor league outing before being activated from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) won't suddenly come back and pitch with increased velocity, so he'll need to continue to hit his spots and keep hitters off balance to be effective. His return could signal the loss of a rotation spot for impressive youngster Andrew Heaney or Matt Shoemaker. Either way, Weaver is a risky starting pitching commodity in shallow mixed leagues and on FantasyScore.

Angels | Matt Joyce to lose playing time

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:22:33 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce is likely to have his playing time greatly reduced following the acquisitions of OFs David DeJesus (Rays) and David Murphy (Indians) Tuesday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) failed to contribute to the Angels through most of his 278 plate appearances this season. FantasyScore owners no longer need to give Joyce any consideration, or risk accidentally putting him in a lineup.

Angels | David DeJesus going to Anaheim

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:11:08 -0700

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim acquired OF David DeJesus from the Tampa Bay Rays Tuesday, July 28. Tampa Bay will receive RHP Eduar Lopez in return.

Fantasy Tip: DeJesus ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is a serviceable platoon option against right-handed pitching. He'll likely split his time with Shane Victorino in left field.

Angels | David Murphy joining Halos

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:03:15 -0700

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim acquired OF David Murphy from the Cleveland Indians Tuesday, July 28, in exchange for SS Eric Stamets.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) will continue to see the majority of his playing time against right-handed pitchers, against whom he is hitting .297 for the season, with 11 doubles and five home runs. Murphy will likely platoon with C.J. Cron as a designated hitter.

Angels | Mike Trout going for MRI

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 15:36:35 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout (wrist) is going for an MRI exam on his left wrist Tuesday, July 28. Manager Mike Scioscia is "hopeful" that Trout will remain day-to-day. Trout's wrist is feeling better than it did Monday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: It would be a huge loss if fantasy owners were to be without Trout ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) for an extended amount of time. Make plans for the worst-case scenario in the meantime and check back for Trout's MRI results.

Angels | Matt Joyce to DL

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:18:54 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce (concussion) was placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list Tuesday, July 28, and OF Efren Navarro was recalled from Class AAA Salt Lake in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap), who is hitting a putrid .178 (43-for-242) on the season, should only be held onto in the deepest of leagues. He's surely going to lose valuable playing time when he's back after the Angels acquired Shane Victorino in a trade yesterday.

Angels | Shane Victorino starting in LF

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:15:19 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Shane Victorino is making his debut with the Angels and is starting in left field and batting eighth Tuesday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino's ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) fantasy value shouldn't change all that much with the move to the west coast, although he could see more stable playing time, especially now that Matt Joyce (concussion) is on the DL. He's merely an outfield depth piece in deep mixed leagues, and his daily value won't be helped at all if he hits near the bottom of the order.

Angels | Mike Trout sitting out

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:08:16 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout (wrist) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 28, due to a sore left wrist after he dove for a ball Sunday, July 26. Trout later hit a grand slam in that game Sunday, but his wrist was too sore to play against the Houston Astros Tuesday. OF Daniel Robertson is starting in center field Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Trout's injury isn't believed to be very serious, but keep an eye on his condition heading into Wednesday. Robertson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has hit .290 (20-for-69) for the Angels in a small sample size. He's more of a low-end option for salary cap relief in daily lineups.

Angels | Halos not going after Carlos Gonzalez

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 10:59:04 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez hasn't been a "point of emphasis" for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim as the trade deadline nears, according to a source. The Angels are trying to get "incrementally" better in left field.

Fantasy Tip: The Rockies are now trying to trade Gonzalez ($5,100, 10.% of cap) after trading away Troy Tulowitzki last night. Car-Go has been on fire at the plate, finally appeasing his fantasy owners. A trade out of Colorado would be a hit to his fantasy value, but if he continues to swing the bat like he has been, his new digs won't really matter much.

Angels | Shane Victorino likely to play LF

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:48:22 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Shane Victorino likely will see most of his playing time in left field but will be able to help at all of the outfield spots, according to interim general manager Bill Stoneman.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) should see a good amount of playing time with the Angels. Victorino has struggled at the plate recently, so owners may want to see how he plays with his new team before considering him as an option on FantasyScore.

Angels | Shane Victorino acquired by Angels

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:09:18 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino was acquired by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Monday, July 27, in exchange for 2B Josh Rutledge.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) likely will be a fourth outfielder for the Angels but could be part of a platoon at one of the outfield positions as a right-handed hitter.

Angels | Jered Weaver to make rehab start

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:40:22 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver (hip) is scheduled to make a rehab start for Class A Inland Empire Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has not pitched since June 20 but appears to be working his way back. He probably will need to make several rehab starts before he returns, and owners may want to see him pitch in a game before consider him as an option on FantasyScore.
