Angels' Luis Valbuena: Struggles in rare start
Valbuena started at third base and went 0-for-5 in Thursday's 8-1 win over the Blue Jays.
After beginning the season in a semi-regular role, the 32-year-old has fallen out of favor and started just two of the Angels' last eight contests. With Shohei Ohtani's emergence as the club's designated hitter, the veteran infielder has been limited to spot starts on days when Albert Pujols or Zack Cozart receives rest. Valbuena is batting .230 with four home runs in 134 plate appearances, so he isn't providing much fantasy value on days he is penciled into the lineup.
