Angels' Luis Valbuena: Takes seat vs. lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valbuena is not in the lineup Monday against the Dodgers, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Valbuena will retreat to the bench with the Dodgers sending southpaw Rich Hill to the mound. The 31-year-old is batting just .083 (1-for-12) against left-handed pitching this season, so the Angels will continue to play matchups with him moving forward. Albert Pujols will start at first place in his place.

Angels' Luis Valbuena: Sits vs. lefty Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valbuena is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Yankees, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

As usual, Valbuena will hit the bench with the opposition bringing a left-hander (Jordan Montgomery) to the hill. C.J. Cron swaps in for Valbuena at first base, batting seventh.

Angels' Luis Valbuena: Hits bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valbuena is out of the lineup Sunday against the Royals, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

As is customary, Valbuena will rest Sunday with the opposition bringing a lefty to the hill in Jason Vargas. C.J. Cron picks up the start at first base in place of Valbuena. The slugging first baseman is coming off of a three-RBI performance Saturday, and he should be back in the lineup when the Angels take on the right-handed Michael Pineda on Tuesday.

Angels' Luis Valbuena: Sits versus lefty Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valbuena is not in the lineup Thursday against the Royals, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Despite collecting an RBI double in Wednesday's contest, Valbuena will get Thursday night off with lefty Matthew Strahm taking the hill for Kansas City. C.J. Cron will move into the lineup to fill the void at first base for the evening.

Angels' Luis Valbuena: Reaches base three times Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valbuena started at third and went 1-for-3 with a pair of walks, an RBI and two runs scored in a 12-6 win over the Astros on Sunday.

There was some question as to which of Valbuena or C.J. Cron would get the shaft when Yunel Escobar returned from the disabled list; so far, it has been neither, as Valbuena has slid over to third or been deployed as the DH over the team's last seven games. Even with semi-regular playing time, the 31-year-old hasn't been doing much this season (.179/.298/.283), limiting his fantasy value to the deepest of leagues.
