Angels' Luis Valbuena: No limitations due to hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valbuena is not limited by the hamstring surgery he underwent last August and is ready to compete for the Angels' first base job, the Orange County Register reports.

Valbuena followed up his breakout campaign in 2015 with an even better start to the 2016 season, slashing a career-best .260/.357/.459 with 16 homers in 90 games prior to going down with a season-ending hamstring injury. Now that he is healthy, the 31-year-old is ready to compete with C.J. Cron for the lion's share of at-bats at first base. Despite their opposite handedness, both batters' splits indicate that they are better against righties, so a strict platoon isn't a guarantee. This will be a battle to monitor this spring because the winner will be a high power upside option in fantasy.

Angels' Jefry Marte: Likely to start year in minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With the acquisition of Luis Valbuena, Marte has likely lost his spot on the 25-man roster, according to the Orange County Register.

This move would make sense considering Marte served as a backup infielder last season, and Valbuena can play both first and third base. He will turn 26 years old this season and showed a bit of life at the plate last season with a .252/.310/.481 slash line in 284 plate appearances. Marte's ability to play at the corners in both the infield and the outfield would make him the first man up should anyone go down to injury at those positions.

Angels' Matt Shoemaker: Pitches to live hitters Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shoemaker pitched to live hitters for the first time since being struck in the head with a line drive and suffering a skull fracture last September and "felt great," Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

Shoemaker reported to camp healthy after undergoing offseason surgery and Wednesday's live session was another step in the right direction. He pitched with a protective piece inserted into his hat and reported no issues of discomfort. It is looking more and more like the head issue is completely behind him and we can treat Shoemaker like the solid middle of a rotation fantasy asset he was prior to his injury. With a 4.8 K/BB ratio, there is a possibility he could be even more than what he has shown so far in his young career.

Angels' Cliff Pennington: Dealing with flu symptoms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pennington is dealing with flu-like symptoms, Maria Guardado of MLB.com reports.

It's unknown whether the illness has set him back at all in spring training, but it's likely nothing too serious at this point. Pennington hit just .209 in 74 games with the Angels last season and is likely to serve as a reserve infielder this season behind Andrelton Simmons and Danny Espinosa. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Angels' Cam Bedrosian: Experiencing lower body stiffness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bedrosian is behind the rest of the pitchers by a day or two due to lower body stiffness, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

Bedrosian just recently got back to 100 percent following surgery to remove a blood clot in his right arm, and now this new issue crops up. It's unclear how severe the stiffness is, but time will likely clear up those thoughts. Once he's healthy, the 25-year-old should give incumbent Huston Street a run for his money for the Angels' closer role, although a setup role is the more likely avenue for Bedrosian in 2017.
