Angels | Albert Pujols hits 500th homer

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 05:41:39 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols hit his 500th career home run Tuesday, April 22. It was his second home run of the game, and he drove in five runs. Pujols is the third-youngest player to reach the milestone.

Fantasy Tip: He has hit eight homers in his last 13 games. His swing looks better than it has in two years. He's no longer cheating to make up for an injured base trying to catch up to fastballs.

Angels | Ernesto Frieri missing with heater

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 15:06:27 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Ernesto Frieri is making mistakes with his fastball, and he's being punished for it with home runs this year, according to manager Mike Scioscia. "I think it's pretty clear with Ernie that the balls that have been hit out of the park have been mistakes," Scioscia said. "It's not like he's making good pitches and they're hitting mistakes." Frieri has allowed four home runs in 8 1/3 innings this year.

Fantasy Tip: Frieri doesn't appear to be in any danger of losing the closing gig, but if he continues to make mistakes with his fastball, things won't be pretty. Joe Smith is the next in lane for save opportunities.

Angels | Searching for reliable back-end guy

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 20:49:21 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia is still searching for a consistent third reliever who can join RPs Joe Smith and Ernesto Frieri in closing out games efficiently. "It puts a lot of pressure on Joe Smith and Frieri to be really the only two guys who are throwing the ball at a level to shut games down. Whether it's Michael Kohn or Fernando Salas, some of these guys has to move deeper into the game, or we're going to have trouble finding that continuity."

Angels | David Freese grabs pine

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 20:34:06 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B David Freese (quadriceps) is healthy enough to play after having fully recovered from right quadriceps tightness, but manager Mike Scioscia kept him on the bench Monday, April 21, against the Washington Nationals. Freese was hitless in three at-bats with two strikeouts Sunday, April 20, to drop his average to .143. "There is a level of confidence that needs to grow with David," Scioscia said. "I think coming to a new team, league, he wants it to happen yesterday. He's working hard, understands what he's trying to do at the plate, and I think he will exhale when he gets some hits to fall in, and when he starts driving the ball again."

Angels | Albert Pujols hitting well

Sat, 19 Apr 2014 14:34:28 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols is hitting .282 with six homers and 14 RBIs. He has four homers in the last six games.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good start compared to his .252-4-17 April last year. He's unlikely to return to his MVP form, but he should be a force to be reckoned with.

Angels | David Freese scratched

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 14:30:04 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B David Freese (quadriceps) was scratched from the lineup with right quadriceps tightness Friday, April 18. Manager Mike Scioscia said the injury isn't serious.

Fantasy Tip: Ian Stewart is replacing Freese at the hot corner tonight. This is likely a day-to-day injury.

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 12:32:32 -0700

Angels | Kole Calhoun out 4-6 weeks

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 16:29:00 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Kole Calhoun (ankle) is dealing with a serious ligament sprain and will be out four to six weeks, according to manager Mike Scioscia.

Fantasy Tip: It couldn't be a worse time for the Angels, who just lost Josh Hamilton (thumb) for a similar timetable. Collin Cowgill is the main beneficiary in right field, and he should now be owned in all AL leagues. Brennan Boesch could wind up in a platoon with Cowgill, too.

Angels | David Freese searching for new stance

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 09:42:04 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B David Freese was dropped to the seventh spot in the batting order Tuesday, April 15, and he responded by hitting two singles. However, he's still hitting .170 (8-for-47) with a .231 on-base percentage and a .234 slugging percentage to start the year. Freese says he's not worried, but he has three singles and 10 strikeouts in 21 at-bats since OF Josh Hamilton (thumb) landed on the disabled list. "We have to get David in a comfort zone, and sometimes changing the neighborhood helps," manager Mike Scioscia said. "When David gets going, he's a big part of the middle of our lineup, but he's obviously searching for some things right now."

Freese, who is typically hot to start the year, insists he's not trying too hard to impress his new team. He's been studying film and working with hitting coaches Dave Hansen and Paul Sorrento to find a more comfortable stance that will help him use his hands to drive the ball the other way.

Fantasy Tip: It's highly unlikely that Freese ever matches his 2012 peak again, so you'd be better off expecting numbers similar to what he achieved in his final year in St. Louis. Until he gets going again, you might want to think about benching him. Remember, he can be very streaky.
