Yunel Escobar, #6

Position Breakdown
3B - 68
Injuries
Knee - Expected to be out until at least Jul 1 (Updated - 6/29/16)
News
Escobar (knee) likely won't get back on the field until Friday, according to manager Mike Scioscia, Bill Shaikin of the LA Times reports.

Escobar would return for the series opener in Boston if he is able to play Friday. The 33-year-old has missed five straight games dating back to last Friday, and will probably be placed on the 7-day DL if he is not able to go against the Red Sox. Escobar has been one of the bright spots for the Angels this season, batting .310 with three home runs and 20 RBI for the club.

News
Marte will start at third base and bat sixth in the order Sunday against the Athletics, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports.

It's the third straight start for Marte, who has been filling in at the hot corner for the injured Yunel Escobar. While the Angels haven't placed Escobar on the disabled list, a recent MRI revealed he was dealing with a bone bruise in his left knee, suggesting a DL stint shouldn't be taken off the table. The Angels will likely monitor Escobar over the next few days before determining if the DL is necessary, which should leave at least a couple more starts open for Marte.

Hector Santiago, #53
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERABBK

News
Santiago (4-4) allowed six runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out six over six innings, but received no decision Sunday against the Athletics.

Santiago gave up a grand slam and a solo homer in the fourth inning that accounted for five of his six runs, but the Angels' offense came up big after his departure to take him off the hook for a potential loss. He's now failed to post a quality start in six of his last eight starts, and his ERA is at 5.27. He'll make his next start Saturday against the Red Sox.

News
Bandy is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against Houston, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

Bandy will sit for the second time in the past three games after starting the previous four contests behind the dish. Carlos Perez is slotted behind the plate for Tuesday's game, batting eighth. During the 2016 season, Bandy is 12-for-44 from the plate with one home run and nine RBI and has gradually became the go-to option for the Angels at the catching position.

News
Trout hit his 17th homer and doubled twice in a 3-for-4 game Monday against the Astros.

Trout is on fire, with at least two hits in each of his past five games and six of his past seven. He has also homered in three straight games and is on pace to record his third straight season of 35 or more home runs. His batting line is up to .319/.415/.572 as he continues to make a push for his second MVP award despite the incompetence of his supporting cast.

Matt Shoemaker, #52
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERABBK
3887.14.121890
 
News
Shoemaker threw six shutout innings, allowed five hits and one walk, and struck out six, but wound up with a no-decision Monday against the Astros.

Shoemaker has been absolutely brilliant over his past four starts, all quality starts. In 27.1 innings, he has allowed just five runs (four earned, 1.31 ERA) with 31 strikeouts against five walks. Unfortunately, the Angels have left him with three no-decisions and a loss over that stretch. One has to imagine Shoemaker's decision luck will turn around if he keeps pitching anywhere near this level, but the 32-45 Angels have been particularly awful in June, with an 8-16 record. Shoemaker has been providing big value in rates and strikeouts, but unfortunately the Angels' offense and bullpen can't be trusted to hold up their end of the bargain.

Shoulder - Expected to be out until at least Jul 31 (Updated - 6/24/16)
News
Wilson is slated for a second opinion on his injured shoulder, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports.

The shoulder has been bothering Wilson since February and he hasn't pitched, even in a rehab start, since May 25. At this point, it's hard to imagine he's going to pitch in the majors in 2016, but we'll update if his next doctor's visit supplies some unexpected good news.

Injuries
Elbow - Expected to be out until at least Aug 1 (Updated - 6/28/16)
News
Richards (elbow) underwent an evaluation and was asymptomatic but will rest for six more weeks, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports.

It appears that the stem-cell therapy Richards underwent in May is having a positive effect, and Richards's season may not actually be lost to Tommy John surgery as was once thought. He will likely need a long rehab assignment even if he is able to go after six more weeks of rest, however, so a late July or early August return is about as optimistic a prognosis as this news can allow.

Injuries
Hamstring - Expected to be out until at least Jul 1 (Updated - 6/26/16)
News
Smith (hamstring) will make a rehab appearance with High-A Inland Empire on Sunday, Joey Kaufman of the Orange County Register reports.

He was able to pitch through a bout of left hamstring soreness for a few weeks, but Smith ultimately hit the DL in early June when the discomfort became too much. Smith now appears to be inching closer to a return and he may very well step back into the setup role immediately upon activation. Huston Street, the Angels' closer, has more walks than strikeouts this year and has blown two of his last three save chances.

News
Street (3-1) pitched a scoreless ninth inning while allowing one hit and striking out one to earn the win Sunday against the Athletics.

Street came into a tie game and after holding down the Athletics, the Angels came up with a run in the bottom of the ninth to get him his third win of the year. After blowing saves in two of three outings, he now has held opponents scoreless in his last two games to move his ERA to 3.68.

JC Ramirez, #66
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERASVK

News
Ramirez was claimed off waivers by the Angels on Sunday.

Ramirez turned in a scoreless inning Friday against the Padres, but that's a rarity for him this season, as the right-hander sports a 6.40 ERA and has been charged with three blown saves. Even though he couldn't make it in the Reds' dreadful bullpen, the Angels must have seen something they liked about the reliever, as they'll add the 27-year-old to serve in middle relief.

News
Lincecum (1-2) served up five runs on seven hits and four walks with seven strikeouts over 4.1 innings in a loss Tuesday to the Astros.

The swing-and-miss stuff is still there, as Lincecum used 16 swinging strikes as he racked up the seven strikeouts. But he also threw more balls (56) than strikes (55), and he was nibbling for a reason -- he was touched up for four extra-base hits, including a Carlos Correa home run. Lincecum's fastball is still sitting in the high 80s, and as such his margin for error is going to be miniscule even when he can pick up the strikeouts in bunches like he did Tuesday night.

Position Breakdown

News
Perez will be behind the plate and bat eighth in the order Sunday against the Athletics, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Perez had missed each of the last four games, as manager Mike Scioscia elected to give Jett Bandy an opportunity to audition for the starting role. While Perez is back in the lineup, Sundays are usually days in which managers prefer to deploy their backup catchers, suggesting that Perez may settle back into a more limited role heading into the coming week. Perez is batting just .186 with three homers in 161 at-bats for the season, so even if he's officially dropped from a starting role, it's unlikely to hurt fantasy owners.

News
Giavotella is out of the lineup Sunday against the Athletics, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Giavotella had been a pest for the Athletics in the first three games of the series, going 6-for-14 with a run and an RBI. It's likely the Angels are just giving Giavotella the day off for rest following a long stretch of starts on consecutive days.

News
Cron is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the A's, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Cron's trend of reverse splits has continued into this season, with the 26-year-old managing a .191/.291/.340 line against lefties and a .277/.324/.434 line against same-handed pitching. Lefty Dillon Overton is starting for the A's on Saturday. There has been no indication that his role is in jeopardy, but Cron figures to continue sitting occasionally against southpaws.

News
Chacin (2-4) allowed four runs on six hits over 4.2 innings in a loss against the Athletics on Saturday. He didn't strike out a single batter and walked four.

Things haven't gotten any better for Chacin since being traded from Atlanta to Los Angeles. He has allowed at least four runs in each of his last four appearances, and since pitching a complete game on May 30, Chacin has yielded 21 runs over 22 innings (8.59 ERA) in the last five outings. He is now 3-6 with a 5.64 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 54 strikeouts in75 innings with both the Braves and Angels this season. His next start will be Friday against the Red Sox.

News
Heaney underwent an evaluation Monday and found no improvement in his injured elbow, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Heaney will be evaluated in two weeks, but it's getting harder and harder to imagine his UCL will heal up enough on its own for him to avoid Tommy John surgery. Even if he is able to return without surgery, this delay pushes his earliest possible return deeper into the season, as he may not be able to return until August in even the best possible case at this point.
