by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Angels designated hitter Matt Joyce will get a start in the lineup for Tuesday night's game against the Astros.

Angels hold struggling Aybar, Joyce out of lineup Thursday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Angels manager Mike Scioscia opted to hold shortstop Erick Aybar and left fielder Matt Joyce out of the lineup Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

It was just the third time Aybar was held out of the lineup this season and first time since May 30. Joyce sat for the third time in five games.

Both players are struggling offensively. Aybar is mired in a 1-for-27 slump in his last seven games, while Joyce is batting .200 (8 for 40) through 15 June games.

"I think he's put a little pressure on himself right now at this point because some hits aren't falling in," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said about Aybar, per MLB.com. "He's playing a lot, he just needs a bit of a break."

Although, Joyce did go 2 for 3 with one triple, one walk and one run on Wednesday.

"We definitely are balancing when a hitter is starting to swing the bat well and you also grind out some at-bats when they're doing poorly, which I think we've done with Matt," Scioscia said. "In the big picture, it's one day, Matt's still going to get his opportunity to contribute, but we've got some guys on our team who we feel very confident are going to contribute."

Angels LF Matt Joyce dropped down to ninth in order on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Matt Joyce is getting the start in left field for the Angels' matchup with the A's on Saturday. But, Joyce is batting ninth for the first time this season. It's just the seventh time in his career that Joyce has started a game in the ninth spot in the batting order. The last time he was last in the order was May 27, 2014 with Tampa.

Joyce is hitless in his last nine at-bats and is hitting just .161 in the month of June.

"I'd be lying if I said I wasn't frustrated and disappointed," Joyce said, per the Los Angeles Times. "But I'm still in the lineup. I'm still getting a chance to play and make the most of it."

Angels LF Matt Joyce trying to find consistency at the plate
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Angels left fielder Matt Joyce has been seeing regular playing time over the last few weeks. Joyce h as started 19 of the Angels' last 20 games. But he hasn't exactly lit the world on fire with his bat during that time.

Over that 19-game stretch, Joyce is batting .254 (15 for 59) with three home runs and seven RBI. But Joyce has been hitting a little better of late, collecting five hits over his last six games, including a double in Tuesday's win over the Rays.
