Angels | Chris Iannetta catching Saturday

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 12:19:40 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Chris Iannetta is starting behind the plate against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber Saturday, Aug. 29. C Carlos Perez is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Iannetta ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is just 6-for-40 (.150) with four RBIs at the plate this month and is hitting .188 for the season. Better low-priced catching options are available in FantasyScore today, so he should be avoided.

Angels | Andrew Heaney impressive Friday

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 19:05:48 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney allowed six hits over six scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Cleveland Indians Friday, Aug. 28, with one walk and three strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: It's possible that Heaney ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) could have been on a pitch count during Friday's start to save wear and tear on his arm. He is scheduled to make his next start against the Oakland Athletics Wednesday, Sept. 2.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker earns win Thursday

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 18:08:58 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker (6-9) allowed one hit over 7 1/3 scoreless innings in a victory over the Detroit Tigers Thursday, Aug. 27, with one walk and five strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) had been sent down to Class AAA Salt Lake earlier in the month following a pair of ineffective starts but was dominant in his first game back Thursday. If he remains in the starting rotation, he could make his next outing against the Oakland Athletics next week.

Angels | C.J. Cron cleaning up

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 08:24:15 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron is hitting cleanup Thursday, Aug. 27, against left-handed Detroit Tigers SP Randy Wolf.

Fantasy Tip: Cron ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has a .291-3-6 line in 86 at-bats against lefties and is a solid low-end buy on FantasyScore.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker starting Thursday

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:19:48 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker will start against the Detroit Tigers Thursday, Aug. 27, according to manager Mike Scioscia.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has flashed excellent form on the mound at times this season, but he allowed 13 runs over 7 1/3 innings during his past two starts. He cannot be started with confidence in any fantasy format at this point, as he is just 11 days removed from that horrible two-start showing. Plus, the Tigers are far from a pushover offensively.

Tigers | Rajai Davis setting the table vs. Angels

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 13:24:39 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis is leading off against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) typically leads off against southpaws, and hitting atop of a potent lineup is a significant value boost for him. He is worth a look as a value play at FantasyScore Wednesday. Anthony Gose ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) shifts down to the nine-hole and his upside takes a hit.

Angels | Ryan Jackson starting vs. Tigers

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 13:18:46 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Ryan Jackson is starting at second base and batting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander Wednesday, Aug. 26. 2B Grant Green (knee) tweaked his knee during the game Tuesday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: With Johnny Giavotella ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) and Grant Green ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) out, Jackson draws into the lineup, but he is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore players. Jackson also has fleeting AL-only and cavernous mixed value.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker returning to rotation?

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 12:28:22 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker is expected to be called up from the minors to make the start Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Shoemaker ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) will return to the fifth spot in the rotation for the final month of the season. He was struggling before his demotion with a 4.76 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 1.6 home runs allowed per nine innings. Using him on FantasyScore tomorrow against the Detroit Tigers wouldn't be a wise decision.

Angels | Grant Green receives good news

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 21:47:42 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Grant Green (knee) went for an MRI Tuesday, Aug. 25, and the tests showed just a "tweak" to his right knee. Green is hopeful of returning to game action Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Green ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he officially plays and can prove his health in a full game without incident. If he sits Wednesday it is likely Ryan Jackson ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) would get the nod.

Angels | Grant Green leaves game

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 18:10:07 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Grant Green (knee) left the game against the Detroit Tigers Tuesday, Aug. 25, due to discomfort in his right knee.

Fantasy Tip: Green ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) had a single in his only at-bat before departing. Ryan Jackson ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) took over for him at second base and could be a short-term FantasyScore option and salary saver if he makes a start or two.

Angels | New timeline for David Freese

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:58:12 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B David Freese (finger) will play third base for Class AAA Salt Lake this weekend, and there is a chance he rejoins the Angels during their current road trip

Fantasy Tip: The Angels are on the road until Wednesday, Sept. 2, so that means Freese ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is nearing a return. You'll want to be patient with him in all formats upon his return, as he hasn't played since Wednesday, July 22. Kaleb Cowart's ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) minimal fantasy value will plummet once Freese returns.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella will return this season

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:53:57 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella's (personal) medical issue is not considered serious, and he is expected to return to the team this season.

Fantasy Tip: Giavotella ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) might be worth stashing in deep leagues, but you'll want to take a long look at upgrading given we're in the home stretch of seasonal leagues. At FantasyScore, Grant Green ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) can serve as a potential source of cap relief, but you'll want to keep your expectations in check.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella to DL

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 11:55:44 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella (personal) was placed on the disabled list with a "personal medical condition" Tuesday, Aug. 25. 2B Grant Green is likely to play second base every day in Giavotella's absence.

Fantasy Tip: Because Giavotella's situation is a bit unclear, you should hang onto him for now if you own him in deeper leagues, but be prepared for the chance that we don't see him again this year. Green ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) offers very little offensive upside and should be ignored at FantasyScore.

Angels | Jered Weaver healthy, more effective

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 10:36:04 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver is one of the slowest-throwing pitchers in the league this year, but he has been dominating hitters with a fastball that tops out in the low- to mid-80s since returning from the disabled list. He has a 2.08 ERA with 15 strikeouts and two walks in 17 1/3 innings in his last three starts, and he credits his better results to better health. With his hip acting up earlier this year, he was unable to use his unusual delivery in which he throws across his body to trick hitters. A massage therapist worked to loosen up Weaver's muscles through exercises and stretching. Weaver's deception and command have returned now that he is looser and healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Weaver's ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) low velocity will likely scare most off on FantasyScore, but if he continues to locate, he could continue to surprise and rack up more strikeouts. Still, he'll continue to be a risk/reward start, including for his matchup tonight against the Detroit Tigers.

Angels | No plans for Taylor Ward?

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 19:29:17 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Taylor Ward is not expected to be promoted when rosters expand Sept. 1, manager Mike Scioscia said Sunday, Aug. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Ward was the Angels' No. 1 pick in this year's draft, and although he is hitting .346 in the minors, it sounds like fantasy owners will have to wait until at least next year to use him as a sleeper.
