Angels' Chris Iannetta getting tips on how to frame pitches better
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Angels catcher Chris Iannetta is working on improving his ability to frame pitches at the plate by watching video of catchers who do it well and asking umpires for advice this spring, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Iannetta ranked 87th out of 105 catchers in gaining extra strikes last season, with a minus-19 grade, according to Baseball Prospectus. He's seeking to finish in the top-10 this season.

"I'm really trying to work on it," Iannetta said. "Some of the numbers last year are not where I want them to be, and that was surprising.

"I get really good reviews from umpires in what I do and how I work, and I see some discrepancies. It's disappointing. So my goal is to get as good as I can, to be in the top five, top 10."

Scioscia: Chris Iannetta will start 100-115 games for Angels
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Angels catcher Chris Iannetta won't see an increase in playing time behind the plate this season. 

Iannetta caught 104 games for the Angels last year, starting 92, but Hank Conger, who caught 79 games last year, was dealt in the offseason.

Despite that, Angles manager Mike Scioscia told MLB.com, "Anywhere from 100 to 115" games would be the ideal workload for Iannetta. 

Iannetta hit .252 with seven home runs and 43 RBI last year.

Chris Iannetta going through season on roller coaster ride
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Just call him Chris "Every Other Game" Iannetta.

Angels catcher Chris Iannetta has been experiencing an unusual trend since late April. He seems to get a hit only every game. Just once since April 23 and April 26 has he recorded a hit in successive games. Yet he has only once got hitless in back-to-back games.

The result of this strange trend has been decent productivity. Iannetta has used his patience and eye at the plate for 21 walks and a strong .370 on-base percentage.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Fantasy Analysis | 1400100111
Chris Iannetta ready for daily league action
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

With a .225 batting average and a timeshare arrangement at catcher with Hank Conger, Chris Iannetta might not be the most obvious play for daily league owners. However, the Angels' backstop has a long history of hitting lefties much better than righties, as he sports a respectable .250/.366/..439 slash line over his career versus southpaws.

Iannetta is scheduled to face three lefties during the upcoming four-game series with the Rays. While you should probably sit him on Sunday against ace David Price, he should have productive starts on Thursday and Saturday, respectively, against Erik Bedard and Cesar Ramos.

Who are some other widely-available hitters who are useful in daily leagues against lefties? I spotlighted a few on our Fantasy Baseball Today blog. Even weekly league owners could have an occasional use for this handful of hitters.
