Angels | Yunel Escobar could play Saturday

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 17:13:42 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Yunel Escobar (knee) was not in the starting lineup against the Oakland Athletics Friday, June 24, because of a minor knee injury. Manager Mike Scioscia expects him to return to the lineup Saturday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: The 33-year-old Escobar is batting .310 with three home runs and 20 RBI through 69 games this season and is hitting .346 over the past week. INF Jefry Marte would likely play the hot corner if Escobar needs to miss additional games.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella leading off

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 16:10:40 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella is batting first in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Eric Surkamp Friday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Giavotella is hitting a solid .263 with three RBI against left-handed pitchers this season. He could be a decent sleeper option for some owners in daily fantasy leagues.

Angels | Three Angels sitting out Friday

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 15:52:30 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Yunel Escobar, OF Daniel Nava and C Carlos Perez are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Eric Surkamp Friday, June 24. 3B Jefry Marte will start at third base and is batting sixth. C Jett Bandy will start at catcher and is batting seventh, while OF Shane Robinson will start in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Marte has cooled off a bit and has only two hits in his last five games. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better options to use. Bandy has gone 4-for-4 against left-handed pitchers since being called up and may be used in two-catcher leagues. Robinson has had some success over the last week or two but is not a strong option.

Athletics | Coco Crisp sitting vs. Angels

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 15:02:32 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 24. OF Max Muncy draws into the lineup in right field and is batting ninth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SPJered Weaver Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp's cross-category production remains viable in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, but otherwise, he shouldn't be on your radar. Muncy is best left to similar deep settings as a depth option.

Angels | Albert Pujols back in the cleanup spot

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 15:51:10 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (hamstring, ankle) is batting fourth as the designated hitter against Oakland Athletics SP Kendall Graveman Thursday, June 23.

Fantasy Tip: While Pujols has 12 home runs and 45 RBI, his .234/.312/.396 slash line is more of what to expect from the 36-year-old veteran. He remains a starter in all fantasy formats, but don't expect prime production from Pujols at any time in 2016.

Athletics | Arismendy Alcantara draws in vs. Angels

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 15:20:34 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Arismendy Alcantara is starting at second base and batting ninth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Thursday, June 23. DH Billy Butler is not in the starting lineup with 2B Jed Lowrie serving as the designated hitter Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Alcantara's fantasy value is tied to his potential on the base paths, and if he can carve out a semi-regular role, he'll be a viable option in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Despite a .333/.375/.528 slash line in June, Butler remains a part-time player, so his value is tied to similar deep setups.

Athletics | No Billy Burns vs. Angels

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 15:12:41 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 23. OF Max Muncy draws into the lineup in right field and is batting second against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tim Lincecum Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Burns remains a viable fantasy asset in the majority of seasonal leagues because of his speed. However, after batting .294 with 26 stolen bases last year, his .241 batting average and 13 swipes to date are underwhelming. Muncy owns a career .214/.296/.381 slash line through 142 plate appearances, and he is a desperation fantasy option Thursday.

Angels | Matt Shoemaker continues nice run

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 15:35:17 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker churned out a quality start Wednesday, June 22, versus the Houston Astros, albeit in defeat. The 29-year-old worked 7 1/3 innings, yielding three runs on eight hits and two walks. He also recorded seven strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Who saw this run coming out of Shoemaker? The right-hander possessed a disgusting 8.49 ERA as recently as just over a month ago, but he's actually been sensational since then to shave more than four runs off that number. In fact, he's pitched into the seventh inning in seven straight starts now, while recording three double-digit strikeout efforts over that span. Shoemaker not only deserves employment in AL-only leagues, but he also boasts some deep mixed league appeal as well.

Angels | Albert Pujols not taking any chances

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 09:34:02 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (hamstring, ankle) has not been swinging a bat, and said, "When I'm good, I'm good, and I'm going to play. Right now, I'm not going to take my chances."

Fantasy Tip: The 36-year-old veteran has a respectable 12 home runs and 45 RBI this season, but his .234/.312/.396 slash line highlights his offensive decline. He remains a viable option in the majority of seasonal leagues, but you should expect to be without Pujols for the immediate future. Stay tuned for updates.

Angels | Albert Pujols out Wednesday

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 08:43:14 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (hamstring, ankle) is out of the lineup Wednesday, June 22, with left hamstring and left ankle injuries. 1B C.J. Cron is hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Cron is hitting .318 with a homer and seven RBI this month. He's a decent lower-middle flyer against Lance McCullers.

Astros | Tony Kemp grabs start vs. Angels

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 08:23:19 -0700

Houston Astros OF Tony Kemp is starting in left field and batting ninth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Wednesday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp is rarely receiving playing time, but he has excellent wheels and could prove to be a viable low-priced flier in daily contests Wednesday. In seasonal setups, Kemp is nothing more than a speculative depth option in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues.

Astros | Evan Gattis sitting vs. the Angels

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 08:12:26 -0700

Houston Astros C Evan Gattis is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 22. C Jason Castro is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis has delivered in the counting stats with 23 runs, 11 home runs and 29 RBI through just 52 games, and while his .212 batting average leaves a lot to be desired, those numbers are excellent from the catcher slot. He should be owned and started in all formats where he can be utilized as a backstop. Castro is a weak option in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues, but he's a potential low-priced flier for daily contests Wednesday.

Angels | C.J. Cron enjoying an uptick

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 23:07:17 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B C.J. Cron went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Tuesday, June 21, against the Houston Astros. He has a total of five RBIs over his past six games.

Fantasy Tip: Cron is 8-for-19 (.421) over his past six outings to raise his average from .249 to .265 since June 14. He is a solid play in most AL-only fantasy leagues and as a value play in DFS.

Angels | Huston Street struggles in Houston

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 23:06:50 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Huston Street allowed two earned runs, two hits and two walks and he did not record an out as he blew his second save of the season Tuesday, June 21, against the Houston Astros.

Fantasy Tip: Street has blown two of his past three save chances, and he might be skating on thin ice for ninth-inning duties in Anaheim. He threw just 10 of his 21 pitches for strikes, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him at least given a mental day off by manager Mike Scioscia in the near future.
