Fantasy Tip: Expect plenty of news on the pending deal over the weekend, and none of it will significantly impact Hamilton's fantasy value. He has the potential to have a solid season, but there is also plenty of risk. Continue to stash him in the majority of formats. However, if you find your hand forced with a lineup decision, cutting bait isn't out of the question.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to stash Hamilton in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. However, there is no indication of what is in store for him going forward, and it isn't out of the question to cut bait if you in a roster pickle. Continue to check back for updates on Hamilton's future and where he might land. Plus, when he'll be healthy enough to return.

Fantasy Tip: Street has been lights out. He allowed his first base runner of the season Thursday, is unscored upon in five innings with seven strikeouts and is 5-for-5 in save chances. He's a good first reliever to own.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Chris Iannetta is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 23. C Drew Butera is behind the plate and hitting eighth in the batting order against Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez.
Fantasy Tip: Butera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is as cheap as they come on FantasyScore, but he's not a very attractive FantasyScore catcher Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: With the injury speculation confirmed, it is a bleak turn for Wilson's ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) fantasy stock. Starting a pitcher with an arm injury is the last thing you want to do in daily contests. Avoid Wilson in all formats until he proves he is healthy and capable of pitching deep into a game with success. He is a low-end arm in the majority of matchups anyway, though.
Wed, 22 Apr 2015 16:29:28 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Considering the Athletics just tuned Shoemaker ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) up for five earned runs through three innings, it might not be the best matchup to start Shoemaker in at FantasyScore. Continue to check back for an official announcement on when he'll return to the hill.
Wed, 22 Apr 2015 16:13:55 -0700
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP C.J. Wilson will have his next start pushed back to Saturday, April 25, against the Texas Rangers. He was originally scheduled to start against the Oakland Athletics Thursday, April 23.
Fantasy Tip: Wilson ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is likely nursing a minor nagging injury, which raises red flags. Although the matchup against Texas isn't daunting, Wilson has been prone to blowup starts dating back to 2013, and he might not be 100%. He is noting more than a flier for daily contests Saturday.
Wed, 22 Apr 2015 16:00:25 -0700
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Nick Tropeano will start against the Oakland Athletics Thursday, April 23, which will push C.J. Wilson's next start back to Saturday, April 25, against the Texas Rangers.
Fantasy Tip: Wilson ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) may be dealing with a minor injury, which makes him a risky FantasyScore start Saturday, especially with his blowup potential. Tropeano should be viewed as a desperation start in all formats Thursday.
Wed, 22 Apr 2015 15:25:37 -0700
Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore and seasonal players will want to check back for an update on whether Shoemaker ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is expected to make his next scheduled start against the Texas Rangers Saturday, April 25. After winning his first two starts of the season, Shoemaker had a rough outing in his last start. The Rangers present a nice bounce-back matchup, though.
Wed, 22 Apr 2015 14:35:04 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cron ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has been struggling mightily to start the season, but he had a two-hit, two-run showing Tuesday, April 21. Make sure to avoid him in all fantasy formats Wednesday. It is likely best to wait for him to string together a few solid games at the plate before utilizing him in FantasyScore contests, too.
Wed, 22 Apr 2015 10:00:31 -0700
Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray is 2-1 with a 2.68 ERA in six outings (five starts) in his career against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He's also 5-1 with a 2.08 ERA in eight career April starts, and he is 13-5 with a 2.14 ERA in 24 career outings against the American League West.
Fantasy Tip: Gray ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) should be an acceptable start against the Angels tonight at FantasyScore after getting knocked around in his last outing. The Angels, as a team, only sport a .228 batting average so far in the season's first month.
Tue, 21 Apr 2015 16:27:02 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hamilton's ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) recovery from shoulder surgery reportedly is going well, but there's no timetable for when he'd be able to return to the team, and it's still possible he won't play for the Angels at all this year after relapsing from substance abuse. Progress on the playing front is good, though, and you should continue stashing him in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Collin Cowgill is starting in left field and batting sixth in the batting order against Oakland Athletics left-handed SP Drew Pomeranz Tuesday, April 21. OF Matt Joyce is starting on the bench.
Fantasy Tip: Joyce ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is slumping to begin the year, so even when he's in the lineup, you'll want to avoid him at FantasyScore until he gets going. Cowgill ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) had a fine spring and has carried it over into the regular season. He did well against lefties in 2014, going 36-for-125 (.288) with three of his five home runs. Consider him as a sleeper for your daily lineups tonight.
Tue, 21 Apr 2015 10:04:18 -0700
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago is 2-2 with a 1.99 ERA in 31 2/3 innings over seven career starts against the Oakland Athletics. Last year, Santiago was 1-0 with a 0.77 ERA in four starts against the A's. This year so far, he is 1-1 with a 2.92 ERA in two starts.
Fantasy Tip: Santiago ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is off to a great start for the Angels, and he should be at least a midrange starter for tonight's games at FantasyScore. Don't put too much stock in his performance against the A's last year, since they are almost an entirely different squad in 2015.
Tue, 21 Apr 2015 09:01:33 -0700
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce and DH C.J. Cron are hitting .167 and .129, respectively, to begin the 2015 season in the absence of OF Josh Hamilton (shoulder). The two have combined for one home run and seven RBI.
Fantasy Tip: It'd be wise to avoid Joyce ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) and Cron ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) at FantasyScore for the time being. Joyce should only be started in daily lineups when he's facing a right-handed pitcher.
